Water spots

Ok so I finally scrubed the truck down. I even put on a quick cote of wax. She is as smooth as a baby's but. But I still have water spots on my hood. Almost like they are in the clear cote. Any way I can get rid of them?

Yep. A good polish and a dual action polisher. Don't go for a buffer right away.

I'm an Adam's convert. They have just the right stuff for your needs.

I would start with a Fine Machine Polish and the correct pad on the polisher.

Start with a low rpm/oscillation setting and move it upwards as necessary.

Sounds good. I'll have to give that a try. I was thinking my next step was a buffer, but I've never buffed before and worried about burning through the paint. I guess I'll be making a stop by sears on the way home. Thanks

My son said to use windex and newspaper to remove water spots. Really crumple the newspaper like you would to wash the windows and use it to scrub the hood after a generous spray with windex. I haven't tried it yet but will when the weather warms up this weekend. It can't hurt, I don't think.

The corners of the paper won't scratch it will they?

I don't think they would but I plan on trying it somewhere safe before going to town on my hood. Maybe try on the roof where no one can see first. I've got plenty of spots there.

Dont buy a buffer...

Buy a polisher!

Porter Cable 7424 I think it is... Dual action, adjustable speed polisher. And i use poorboy's stuff for polishes. But Adam's is also good stuff.

I have the 7424 Polisher, and it does an AMAZING job. Hell I even get paid to detail cars with it
