    Re: How To Remove Water Spots

    I was praying for Type 1 but I had the Type 2.

    Scratch X and a terry cloth did the trick.... plus alot of Karate Kid!!! Wax on... Wax off!!!!


    There is still some water spots but hardly noticeable. Once I get feeling back in both of my arms, I will get those too

    You can "Test" to see if it will work. If you have more questions about the water spots on your car please start your own thread.

    Thank you.

    I take it that M205 should be sufficient enough to remove water spots. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong

    Depends. If they are mild, yes. If they are severe, deeper into the paint, then a stronger product or machine may be needed.

    Hey Mason,

    Haven't seen you on here in a while

    The M205 role is that of an ULTRA *finishing* polish, but it is unique in that depending on application method (hand, rotary, DA) and pad (polishing or finishing) it can have some moderate bite.

    On Ford paint I have on occasion been able to achieve 100% correction on a car in decent shape with 2 passes using a polishing pad and rotary.

    Usually though, you will want to stick to a heavy hitter like M105 to get at deep etchings and water spots. Then use the M205 to refine the surface.

    You use a FLEX 3401, right? Or did you end up with a G110?

    Wsup Mark,

    I haven't seen you on F150 in a while, lol. I ended up getting the G110 to start off with. I didn't want to cause any damage first. The water spots that I'm talking about are not severe. It on my lady's 08 Focus. The funny thing is that about two weeks ago after washing, drying, clay I polished her car with the G110, polishing pad and M205. I followed that up with NXT 2.0 and the car looked wonderful. This past weekend I went to just wash it and I don't know if I left some soap on a little to long but now it has some water spots on the spoiler. The rest of the car is fine. I think I'm going to clay it then hit it with M105. Maybe next summer once I get comfortable with the G110 I will step it up.

    Re: How To Remove Water Spots

    I just recently discovered the joys of detailing. After a couple of months of reading and learning, I discovered that I had some Type II water spots. I knew that I needed to clay the surface, so I picked up a clay kit. The kit included a bottle of "cleaner wax". After washing and claying, the water spots were still there. So, I tried the cleaner wax. I used it as if it were a polish compound. Moderate pressure. Took them water spots right off. Most spots vanished in one pass. A few spots needed two passes. And, waxed at the same time. Easy.
