How to remove hard water stains on paint

I seem to be not able to remove these hard water stains on my falcon. I've tried washing it a lot but they are still there, I waxed it and there still there. I know vinegar can remove them but I dont want to wreck my paint, and will that tax the wax off? Help a kid out.

"Correction clay" that is all there is to it. Megiers markets one if you go to your paint store they should have a brand or two in stock.

I'm tell you, the correction clay will remove them without any "cutting" of the paint. It will remove ANYTHING that is "stuck" to a smooth surface. We are talking cured urethane primer overspray, waterspots off windows, I have even cleaned direct overspray off plexiglass windows without hurting the plexiglass. Correction clay is one of the products that sounds to good to be true, but will do exactly as advertised.

You simply rub it over the surface, no hard work, no damage to the finish, it just does what they say it will do.

expert detailer

Ive been detailing 25 year when i started people would sat "oh you do pin striping" ugh
any way look in the local yellow pages and find a detail supply place and get some "fall out remover " if that dont work go for the clay if that dont work then micro fine compound 3M

beware when cutting your paint you also might need swirl remover and glaze careful on the edges not hard to go right through the paint .... now after thats cured use a chamois
and or that new mr clean thinga or if u want to go high tech
REVERSE OSMOSIS H2O FILTER
OH YEA KEEP THE FALLOUT REMOVER WET WHILE WASHING (sorry for the caps)

the fallout should do it let me know how u make out i have a secret weapon i dont advertise

good luck slowride66
