So I have had my Raptor just a little over a year. I have water spots all over my windows that I can not get out. I have water spots all over the truck. To the point where I had to compound them out. I tried everything I possibly could before compounding it. Still, even after removal and a couple of coats of wax I can not seem to keep these things gone. Its starting to get very irritating!! Any recommendations on product? Im almost to the point where I'm going to have it professionally detailed and pay the money  Embarrassed to have someone else fix it. I don't care how much the product is. I want something that is excellent, not so so.

I have had success with Hawaiian Island Shine's water spot remover.  It is easy to use as directed.  Important to use it in the shade and when it is cooler in the day as it needs not to dry out as you work on the spots.  Sometimes it takes a couple of tries.  I think it is may still be available at Don Quiote stores.  Longs doesn't have it anymore.

Adams may have a good one as well, but I have not tried it.

Hawaiian island shine went out of business though
Adams or chemical guys products are the best
If you need a buffer or just an extra hand to make the process faster let me know I can bring my things too to help out, plus I live right down the hill from you lol

Thanks for the Info Don. I have never used Adams or Chemical guys products. I will have to check them out when I get home next week. My poor Raptor is dying right now because of the abuse of water spots... yeah its a truck but, its a damn expensive truck too..Have to keep it as nice as possible. Might need a buffer. Mine pretty much shit the bed.

old school method to get rid of calcium based water spots:
add one cup vinegar to one gallon hot water,  add just two drops of Dawn dish soap (lets solution stay on glass as a surfactant).  Soak cloth in solution  and place on glass.  Re-soak and replace cloth every five minutes for about half hour.  It may take a few tries until spots weaken and are removed by rinsing.
