    Just purchased a 2004 Xtra Cab. The previous owner appears to have driven through some gravel or something that marked up the clear coat on the door. They look like water spots but are actually small marks on the clear coat. I'm curious if anyone else has had this problem and if so, what product is recommended to remove or reduce them? Thank you in advance!

    Just try the meguiars clay with detailer first. If the water spots are hard on there, you'll need to polish after the clay. IF that doesn't work, rubbing compound is your friend. And do wax afterwards. Hell of a lot of work. Good luck.

    No mods yet but I'm working on that
    Wet sand with 2500 grit until flat, buff with compound at low speed, then polish. Won't take you 5 minutes.
