    Hello everyone, I just washed the Supra for the first time. I must say, it is an odd car to wash. Water pools up in weird places and it does not take long to wash because it's so small.

    Anyways, I did some paint correction after and noticed a lot of stuff embedded in the paint. It has some rail dust on it and a ton of small orange-y colored stains which I assume were from bird poop.

    I was slightly upset that there were so many marks on a brand new car.

    Sadly not. They all came out, but they were definitely pretty stuck in. I would say I found probably 20-30 of them.

    I agree with the washing part. So many curves, crevices, etc. dirt gets in everywhere.
    I haven't applied any paint correction. Been enjoying the car so far :) I'll check more closely now.
