Need some help with Water spots

My truck is Tuxedo black, and I have Water spots. Im working in wyoming and they have Hard water up here and I dont have alot of time to wash her. Tried half and half vinegar and water with no luck. Washed and used some spray detail with no luck. Anybody use Meguires Spot remover, Denase water spot remover or chemical guys water spot remover?

Dont want to use a product thats gonna damage my Clear coat.

Any ideas?

I had a tuxedo black f150 before my f250 that I have now. I used a meguires(?) clay bar kit and that took care of everything on the paint, good as new. I am not sure about the windows though. I've heard of some sort of acid for windows, not sure. Good luck.

Clay bar would work well on the windows too. Make sure you seal the paint and windows if you do clay bar.

I used to have the same color F150 also. A good hand polishing with some turtle wax always took care of my water spots. And I second the clay bar, they work great, but you have to WAX the truck after because its gonna strip everything down to your clear coat. That is the most important lesson I have learned with owning black vehicles, wax it regularly.

I have had good luck with Chemical Guys Products I like them nice pop and do what they say. The other one to look at is DODO Juice products. A good clay bar, polish, seal and wax will do wonders for cutting down on future water spots. If you do have deeper etching one what spots it may take a correction to get them out. You bought a black truck as I like to say "Black is a lifestyle when it comes to keeping it clean"

Got a email back from Chemical Guys and I ordered their Water Spot Remover. They advised, once I do the Remover to then apply a sealant, then a good coat of wax.

Someone suggested that I do a clay bar once I rinse the Spot Remover off, then add a sealant, then add a coat of wax.

Any thoughts?

Yes I think that pocess is the way to go. With good protection I think it may also cut down on your water spots also.

50/50 CLR and Water in a spray bottle. Used it on my black mustang use it on my black wheels. And it works great on boats. Better than the ducky stuff and much cheaper too.

Thanks guys. I ended up ordering some stuff from Chemical guys and then ordered some wax products from Adams.

Went with Chemical guys medium Clay bar, Water Spot Remover, Eco Smart, Jet 109 sealant, Weather Tek, and leather combo kit.

Then went with Adams Ultimate Wax and Polishing Kit.

Cant go wrong with either of those guys products, so maybe a little of each is the best combo.

Just got to wait til its nice enough to do a COMPLETE detail. We fixing to have some bad weather tonight and tomorrow.

Maybe this weekend I will be able to polish her up. Then I will post some pics and do a review of the products that I used.
