    Damn watermarks won't come off!!!

    I tried everything. Car wash, vinegar, polish, wax, buffer, nothing worked. I'm gonna have it professionally detailed, especially since i have a screwed up touch up on the rear panel cuz of the wet-sand. Here are pics. Any advice?

    a good waxing should take care of it.

    Welcome to my world of what we so much love to call "HARD WATER"

    we have the same problem at our house because its a new subdivision and there is no water softener installed in my house. only way we dont get the spots is to dry REALLY fast after the wash and if u let sit waxing it off is a bitch.

    A cloth damp with vinegar should take out the crust.

    Well I tried two car washes (from a place nearby that uses soft water), polishing, waxing with a buffer, and vinegar on the windows. Nothing worked. In fact, the only place that did clear off the watermarks is where a bird took a massive crap on it. The paint is not new, straight from 2000.

    Yea I moved from NJ to CA and I never thought hard water could be this much of a problem. I'm keeping my car covered for now until I get it professionally detailed in like 3 weeks. I have a low-powered buffer so let the guys at a auto cleaner take car of it, plus if they screw up it's their head. Is the vinegar safe on the paint???

    I would try the claybar with a mixture of a good car soap and soft water (distilled if you have it). Also, we have hard water too, so I picked up a garden hose filter that works great. The good thing is the filter can be refreshed by soaking in salt. pwgazette.com/gardenhosefilters.htm
