    over the past couple weeks i've been getting these really weird spots on the hood and lately throughout the whole car. first i've noticed they started appearing on the hood and at this point i havent washed my car in a while. so i washed and waxed the car, but couldnt get the spots all the way out. now everything was fine for a few days till the spots started appearing pretty much everywhere. i tried to get them out but they wont come off, further scrubbing would most likely damage the paint. what im thinking is it's:
    1. the sun?
    2. bad wax job? but they started appearing before i waxed.
    3. morning residue mixed with ash from the forest fires we've had lately? but then again the forest fires are recent and i've noticed the spots before the fires.
    4. the paint starting to fade? (car was painted a yr ago). idk.

    is there any products i can use to try and get these stains out?

    anyways here's some pics:

    Bingo, kX. Looks like hard water spots. Time to get busy polishing the paint, if you want them gone.

    1. Clay. 2.Polish. 3.Apply sealant or wax. It's all in the sticky posts.

    Post pics when you're done. We love to see results!

    You need to polish the hell out of that paint and wax it. If you don't, it will keep doing that when it rains or gets hit by sprinklers.
