Hey Night: How about buying some Meg Ultimate Compound (abut 12 to 15 dollars) , a polishing device (usually around 30 to 40 dollars) and Meg Ultimate Polish (around 10 bucks)

PS - If you were close, i'd do it for a six pack of DIET REDBULL hahahaha.

If you don't want to do it yourself, check out Dave over at Innovative Detailing in Tustin. He will take care of you whether you have a big or small job. He bends over backward for his customers, takes great pride in his work, and his pricing is very fair. 714-715-9397

For $600, Dave will leave your car looking like it is coated with glass. If you're just looking for removal of some minor etching from water spots but no further correction, probably any detailer can do it.

Eric Shuster at Envious Detailing or Joe Fernandez at Super Shine Auto Detailing are both good.

Why not but a kit from Adams and do it yourself? Vinegar takes off water spots as well, wipe it till gone then rinse with water.

Love my Porter Cable kit from Adams, you can also try Chemical Guys as they're local. Show them your car and they'll help you out

That cyclo thing is new and don't know anybody that has it. Here is the kit that I have but with Adams polish, it's easy to use so don't worry about messing up your paint.

Yep, I had them bad on my wife's car and clay wouldn't touch it. Look on YouTube, that's how I found it. Be sure and rinse it off when done.
