water spots removal

i have water spots on rear deck and the hood,i had tried meguiar's step1 without result,i heard their cleaner wax can do the job, also a solution of vinegar and water can help, any help will be appreciated.

Walmart has instant detailer and clay bars... You only claybar after you wash and before you wax. Between wax jobs, use instant detailer.

mequiars final inspection works good too. if they are really tough just polish them out with a good buffer.

Instant detailer is the same as the stuff in the box. It also works as the lube for the clay bar. You've got everything you need.

I hope it works for ya. If they aren't coming off with detailer or simply washing the car, you probably have water spots etched into the paint.

Meguiars step 1 should always get those out. If you notice these on your car all the time, I had a problem with my OEM paint job that you may have. Apparently my car had what looked like water spots under the clearcoat. The dealership even told me they were under the clearcoat and there was not way to get them off unless you got a new paint job. I spent alot of money trying to get these spots off before, but never succeded. Off course, a year after I got my car, it got vandalized and I got a whole new paint job so they were gone on my 2nd paint job.
