    Situation - I left my car parked underneath the apartment complex's covered parking. The roof structure (metal) was leaking. It leaked onto my car and left a rustspot along with a line, where the rusty water had run, on my white hood. I tried to get it off with just a rag, but no such luck.

    thanks for any advice :sad2: This just happened from sitting there yesterday and last night. The sooner I can get and answer, the better. I figure it will only get worse the longer I leave it

    20 minutes with Mothers Clear coat safe rubbing compound and I've barely started to remove any of it :sad2:

    I need more suggestions :(

    Try using some polish (Meguiar's Mirror Glaze #7), if that takes it off, be sure to wax over the area you just polished.

    Just talked to a detailing place - They said 50 bucks to fix it. Wet sand, buff, wax. Sound good?

    For 50 bucks, I'll let someone else do it :o

    Sounds good. The wet sand will have a much better chance of taking it off than the "home remedies" we've been suggesting.

    You may wanna try some Bar Keeper's Friend. You can get it at the grocery store for like 2 bucks. It works great for removing rust from all kinds of stuff.
