Mix some white vinegar with distilled water and wipe it with a microfiber to remove the water spots, and wax or whatever you want afterwards.

Thanks guys. Tried the clay bar and didnt do anything. The Maguiars worked well on the glass just hesitant to try it on the clear. Good advice on the detailer, I'm in Tampa and hoped someone would recommend a shop for detailing expertise.

Only thing that ever worked for me was vinegar and elbow grease. That meguiars stuff didnt do squat on some bridge water stains. Be prepared to buff afterwards.

Since I don't trust myself to DIY beyond hand applications it's all pointing to letting a professional handle the issue so I'll take it somewhere local for at least an evaluation then go from there... We'll see... Thanks again...

I use a drying/nano coating agent from Gyeon called Wet Coat. Spritz on a wet car after washing and power wash off. Drying is amazing and shine left awesome. No spots.

Thanks for the tip to visit Auto Paint Guard in Tampa, just came back and it's a very impressive operation. Treated to a tour with examples of correction in process and have an appointment to drop mine off next Monday evening. Ralph

I bought an inline water softener to prevent water spots. It works.

Also, not letting the water dry on the car works too, and is less expensive.
