use a quick detailer as/after you dry. or spritz some water over the water spots to re hydrate the spots. i prefer the quick detailer by meguires. also as you wash your truck, keep the whole thing wet till you are ready to dry it, this will prevent most of your prob.

sorry. just reread the post, to get rid of them, vinigar and a rewax, claybar and a rewax, or just wash again and dry faster. all in all, after you get it the way you want it, a good wax will prevent alot of the spotting.

I have the same kind of water where I live. I use micro fiber cloth to dry up after washing. It leaves a spotless finish.

I have this waterspot on my hood that I can't get off. I tried clay but it didn't work. I plan on trying a light abrasive finishing product sooner or later.

clay works great for crap on your paint! Ive used it several times for spots I couldnt get off just by cleaning. it will also remove overspray from paint and contaminations in your clear coat

Best product I've come across for tough water spots tar, small scratches, tree sap etc...is Klasse-All-In-one Polish. Works great as a Polish also

Clay is a fantastic product for paint care. There is no substitute. Nothing else will remove bonded contaminants quite like it.

If you doubt, scrub your paint with soap and water. Then clay it. Look at the clay and you will see what your soap and water left behind.

Your paint will also go from gritty to 'smooth-as-glass'...

Need some?

Be advised that vinegar is acidic, meaning that it will remove some paint. So proceed with caution and don't leave it on there too long. It realy should be diluted, too.

I prefer polishing hard water stains off. I feel that I have more control versus using vinegar.

My suggestion would be first to clay it, then polish your paint, then protect future water spots from developing by waxing.
