    To start off yes I read all the stickies but I want to know every ones best procedure to really get those stubborn hard water stains out of the clear coat. I'm having trouble removing them from my black GT. Thanks

    50/50 vinegar and water solution usually works for me.

    Do you have a PC to use or are you doing all of this by hand?

    The vinegar trick didnt seem to work. I have tried this in the past and dont seem to get good results from it at all. I have a PC and tried using some compound an tried some corrective polish.....no good either. The spots look pretty in there. Any suggestions?

    if they are in there, it's going to take some correction. v/w works for fresh water spots, not so much on old ones.

    Could be time to wetsand (2500 grit), then compound with rotary and wool pad.

    i haven't done much correction lately, so i haven't tried anything new lately. But i can stand by the old trustys, OC and OP. I read that meg's #105 is the new hotness, but i've yet to use it.
