Water Spots

Hi,

I read the other thread on Water Marks on Black Paint... didn't answer this question which I have though. I'm pretty confused as to why I even have water spots on my paint considering there is about 4 layers of wax on the car!

When you use Vinegar/Lemon Juice/etc (acid based product) on your cars paint:
a) does it diminish your clear coat? if so, how do you build it back up?
b) do you need to re-wash/re-wax after applying acid based product?

Thanks in advance!

You have a good idea. Wash w/ vinegar (I dilute it) and see if that removes the deposits. You will need to wash and rewax afterwards though, but it wont abrade or diminish your clearcoat.

Doesn't matter how or what kind of wax is on your car, if you let the water evaporate and it has deposits in it (regular tap water does), it'll leave the crap behind, creating the water marks on any surface.

Okay guys. Thanks! I'm going to give it a shot tonight. Washed my car at noon since that was the only time I had to do it, and I thought about just keeping the car dirty... Shoulda just done that. This is going to be double the work!!!!

Try Meguiar's #1 Paint Cleaner...it usually does the trick and then follow of with your choice of wax/polish. Very safe and great results.
