wash and dry in a shady area if possible. Meguires clear coat body scrub, or even their cleaner/wax will work...any brand really will do (mothers ,etc)

i've heard that vinegar works wonders on waterspots.... do this in a well ventilated area... so that it'll evaporate and leave no smell. hope this works. white vinegar.

ive tried 1500, 3000 grit, and finesse it polishers by dupont and 3M. No success. the finesse it took down some of the spots but then i gotta finish it with more polishes to make it shiny again. I tried white vinegar and it made the spots less noticeable but i dont know what it does to the paint. i cant even get the spots off the glass with even the harshest polishes, the only thing that works is CLR but thats bad on the paint. walmart doesnt seem to have much as far as meguires goes, so the local car specialty place is where i go. They charge a sick amount of money though... once i figure out the right way i'll keep it away from the damn sprinklers. later

OKAY i got the fix for the waterspots!! Rustaid. thats it. buy rustaid and mix it with a little bit of water to dilute it. Put it on a clean soft rag and wipe it on the water spots. They disapear almost instantly. You can hear the difference while wiping, at first its like sandpaper and then after a few seconds it gets real smooth and quieter. No scrubbing, just rinse it off. Period. Then of course re wax in case it stripped some of the wax off. I was told this by 2 people before i tried it but hell yeah it worked awesome. I noticed that its not good to use on the black plastic though because it made the plastic look dull and faded.
