Well.. there were those rain drops all over my car especially on the hood.. i bought that mother's clay bar and it didn't do anything for my car... my car looks shiny but when you look.. those spots are still everywhere...

any other advice to help it out besides a new paint job? i'm very frustrated with this car and will be selling her next year for (hopefully) a 4th gen vtec.... thanx in advance.......

Claybar wont help get out water spots, the only thing that will get water spots out is a buffer, a real buffer, not a damn orbital buffer. I got most of mine out this way. I wouldnt reccomend using one if you dont know how, you can burn your paint if you do it wrong. If the water spots are bothering you that bad, id take it to a detail shop, they can get em out no problem. prob. be around $50-75.

Water marks and bird droppings stain the clear coat and polish and waxing...as well as using a claybar will not get them out. You really need to use a microfinishing compound and some machine glaze to get it back to new. It's not an easy job but when your done it loks like new. Also you'll new a hispeed wheel like someone else mentioned.

Here's the plan:

Learn how to use this stuff on your current car. When you trade, you'll be getting a car with better paint, but still not perfect. Then you can make it perfect with this stuff.

Here's what I recommend:

1) Buy an orbital buffer
2) Wash and rinse the car 2 or 3 times with dish soap
3) 3M Swirl Remover
4) 3M Rubbing Compound (fine cut)*
5) 3M Imperial Hand Glaze (TWICE before waxing)
6) 3M Perfect it paste wax
7) 3M Gloss enhancer spray after each wash
8) In the future, only wash by hand.

* Only use the rubbing compound on the areas that the swirl remover didn't help.
