Titanium Waterspots

Or at least they seem like theyre made of titanium.

So far ive tried mothers california gold car wash and meguiars clay bar kit. Im about to try some cleaner wax possibly with my waxer/buffer. I dont have any polishing or rubbing compound, just scratchx2.0.

Ive also tried diluted white vinegar and it didnt even make a dent. The clay bar helped some, but theyre still quite apparent.

SHould I clay bar again, try buffing with the cleaner wax or what?

Foolishness aside...

I have found that Meguiars Cleaner Wax worked wonders on waterspots on my Imperial Blue.

Thanks for the move, Ill try to pay more attention next time. I hate being that guy.

Im essentially going over my entire car with a clay bar. Ive had to use more than one because 5 years of hard living left my paint in rough, literally, shape. I cant believe I didnt do this sooner, but it really does get it glass smooth.

Im trying the Meguiars nxt wax 2.0 for the first time after the cleaner wax. When you wax your car, how many coats do you usually apply?

thanks again!
