    the water spots are still there after claybar, scratchX, polish, and wax. I've tried everything. Help please.

    You will probibly need a heavier cutting compound then Scratch-X. Try the Megs Medium Cut Compound, or Swirl Remover 2.0, or 3M Swirl Mark Remover. You may even want somthing like DACP to give it a shot.

    Also make sure you are rubbing the product in well, and working it untill it is almost gone.

    Also, give a diluted vinager solution a try as well. That can often remove teh mineral deposits from teh clear coat. But dont let it set to long, and rince well, as well as rewash the car when finished.

    You may have to step up into a Porter Cable or somthing like that if none of this works.

    Good luck.
     
  3. a good way to get rid of light waterspots w/ a good wash is to use warm water. Won't help you hear but for future use :)

    I don't know how warm water would help. Water spots come from mineral deposits, those aren't exactly changed by the fact that the water is warm or cool.

    I've heard of washing with vinegar to remove water spots.

    I haven't tried it myself but the process is something like this.

    Get a gallon of clear vinegar. Wash car with Dawn dishwashing soap. Mix vinegar and water 50/50 for light spotting, use full strength for heavy spots. Wash car with vinegar and then wash throughly with water and car wash solution.

    Polish and wax.

    Try it on your windshield also.

    I'd try the vinegar method also.
