Re: Solution for getting rain spots out of paint?

What about water spots on the chrome trim? I've tested a few different cleaners and metal polishes in addition to vinegar that some people recommend with no luck so far.

Turtle wax chrome polish as well as maguiars UC should pull that right out even a bug and far could help.

Re: Solution for getting rain spots out of paint?

CarPro Iron X should pretty much get mosty anything without having to go to the buffer yet...on chrome, some good old chrome polish should do the trick. I always start small, with some chemical removal, then if necessary move up to clay, then buffing/polishing. I too usually only have a couple spots that don't require polishing a whole panel, and I hate trying to get that one little spot and put some light hazing in the good paint around it trying to polish it out, then you have to fix the whole a big area or atleast the size of where the pad touched.

Re: Solution for getting rain spots out of paint?

I just used Turtle Wax's wax & dry product for the first time and it removed the water spots from my paint. The city softens our water so the spots are mostly from raindrops drying in the sun.

The wax may not be good enough for serious detailers but it's good enough for me. I ended up having to mist sections of the Jeep to apply it since it was drying on it's own faster than I could go around.
