    So this past week we've had the craziest weather in SoCal. First it was really hot then out of nowhere we had overcast with light rain and humidity. I parked my truck head first towards my house and all the water from my roof came down onto my hood. Due to the humidity the following day all the water had evaporated. Well when I washed my truck today I saw that my whole hood was covered in water spots. I hit it with the clay bar, but that didn't work. What should I do?

    Maybe a light spritz of water and white vinegar? Follow it up with a polish and wax, of course...
