How to remove water spots!?


Apr 3, 2005
Been trying for a long time now and have used just about everything in a bottle or can to remove the old water spots on the rear Notch glass. So is there a polishing kit/compound with pad etc. that will do the job right?

if it's simply just water spots, use a 50/50 water/vinegar solution. i use it on my boat prop all the time and works like a champ. it's safe to use on other things as well other than it will take the wax off.

Thanks everyone. I have tried the 50/50 water/vinegar solution and it didn't even touch it. Even tried very fine steel wool. No go. I think I have some turtle wax scrach remover laying around and I know I have a pad or two. If that doesn't work I will give Glassstrip a shot.

I will not be at the track this weekend. Plans have changed with the wifey. Going to get this Notch running this weekend if it kills me. Finishing up the exhaust tomorrow and might be picking up some gears too. 2:73 are killing me.

I've gotten tons of things from for polishing & detailing.
Not this specific kit but ones like it.

Diamondite Glass Care Kits

I have another kit I got from some other site. It has 2 glass polishing discs for the porter cable dual action polisher, and this glass polish made by "Autoglym"...look it up.

This is a lake county kit and I've used their polishing pads for paint with awesome results, so check this out too:
Professional Glass Polishing System

Here's what I use; it says no heavy polishing required but if you use with glass polishing discs on the PC DA polisher it creates awesome results
Autoglym Glass Polish & Cleaner

The spots will come back though and you have to clean it every few months.
