Hey guys,

I just purchased about a month ago a 07 Supreme Black and Red. It has visual water spots on the black that I what to remove. What do I need to do to get these removed? What products?

I have purchased the Stimulus Package from Boat Bling. To help keep them away in the future!

1/3 vinegar. 1/3 windex. 1/3 water.

Hot Sauce should remove the majority but anything that is etched in to the gel will need acid or polish/compound to remove. Keep a real good coat of wax on the black areas to minimize future issues.

If you go the acid route I'd suggest diluting muriatic (pool) acid with plenty of water in a sprayer and using plenty of fresh water to flush it off afterward.

Thanks for the business! Any questions don't hesitate to ask

Hey Jut -
It looks like you are local to PDX? I have a gallon of Auto Magic Hard Water Spot Remover. It works very well. If you want to bring a spray bottle by my house, I would fill you up and you can try it. As Zack said above, it depends on how deep your water spots are. I have heard good thing about his products, but if you want to try this first, feel free to hit me up.
Either way you are going to have to put in some elbow grease. Next step would be to get some compound and polish her down if you know what you are doing with a buffer.
After you get it all cleaned up, give it a good coat of wax and as long as you wipe it down good after each use, you should be good to go.

Hey guys thanks for the replies and ideas.

Diggs I'm about 1hr south of PDX but will hit you up next time up there.

Here is a better picture of the water spots after I removed the old boat numbers.

I'm pretty sure the only way to get them off is going to be a good waxing.... What product and applicant/removal process is going to work best?

A "good waxing" will not get those off. If you are good with a buffer you can use a good compound (3M or similar) and buff down the whole thing and then wax it up. The water spot remover should put a pretty good dent in it too, but as I said you will have to put in some elbow grease and be prepared to have some sore arms!!!

You should have it looking like new once you are done...

I like the Hot Sauce too. If that doesn't get it all off, try cleaning with a a mixture of .3 CLR/Limeaway, .3 vinegar, .3 water. Then if that doesn't get it all off, go to the buffer. Just trying to save you some time if possible...

As stated above, vinegar. To get water spots off, I tend to use just a simple vinegar and water mix, about 3 parts vinegar to 1 part water in a spray bottle. It works pretty well, is cheap and always readily available.

That 3m compound is awesome. What's the specific name of the gel polish they sell?

The big secret with black is just to stay on top of it. Don't ever put it away wet and try to use the boat bling type products when you wipe it down.

This stuff will have those marks off in about 10 seconds. Wear rubber gloves. Do not breathe the fumes.
