Anyone entering Top Gear's bird poo contest? Some pics before and after!





I wish I had taken more photos at the time. I had cleaned the car the night before and woke up to find every single panel covered.

Living next to a beach in seagull breading season really does wear thin having to constantly wash the car.

The neighbours think I'm daft washing the car every other day, but you have to.





Here it is when clean.

Not all singing and dancing like a lot of the cars on here.

Black, softer SE lines, 230s and a nice shine. Less is more to me a lot of the time.

No plans to do anything about the styling.

I get them too.

At bit of a disadvantage over a high Range Rover though.

That Micra take some beating. Can't see the paint taking that too well.

I'd move house. Seriously.

And why is the Fiat Thingy under the car port and yours is out in the open?

wish I took picture of mine when a wood pigeon dive bomped it. About 10 inches on the door and another two large deposits on passenger seat as windows where open.

Took about a half hour to clean up

The bird poo pictures are from my flat in Aberdeen. I've got nowhere to hide and that's where all the seagulls are.

Not really intending to stay in my current flat in Aberdeen too long. It does not make too much difference whereabouts in Aberdeen I move though. Seagulls are everywhere up here.

Just come out if Morrisons to find another deposit on the car!

The other pictures are from my parents home where I was visiting. Seagulls are not an issue there.
