    I don't know where they come from but it's annoying and my poor "Diva" is suffering. I already got a white vehicle did you check my photo gallery?

    On my new '07 Taco there were some small "over spray" white spots on the tailgate. I just sprayed some WD40 on them and they came right off. After all, you have to remember that WD40 is really a cleaner, not a lubricant.

    How about this: WD40 received its name in Vietnam. (My dad and I: collections of useless data) :D

    White spots--inside the tailgate on liner, or outside on body finish? Are you parked where automatic sprinklers come on at nite? I have a nite class at an office complex...their sprinklers are running well water--talk about water spotting!
    WD stands for "water displacing"...no RVN needed ;-)
