Malaysia Car Detailing Guru KC present - How to remove Stained water mark from glass

Waterspot or watermark is a very common problem. Most cars are constantly being subjected to the Daily harshness of acid rain, Contaminants in the air, Hard water, etc and Left off drying in the blazing sun. moreover it is so irritating to see the watermarks on the glass and it is dangerous to drive especially in rain


Hard water stains, or acid rains and other minerals in your water.

While these stains are hard and tough to be removed, there are several cleaning and prevention methods that can help get your glass back into sparkling condition.



how to check for water spots

use a damp cloth to do aquick wipe - spot will appears and use this to check for uncorrected stains




take note

some commercial car wash uses

1. ACIDS - they are quick and most effective - Muriatic acid or hydrochloric acid is very dangerous......To remove hard water spots from your glass might be a nightmare.You had to buff with hard ... Hydrofluoric acid is a dangerous chemical and if you have asthma or any breathing disorder....which some "so call reputable" detailing centre uses

q
warn against using hydrofluoric or hydrochloric acids to remove water spots on glass. Not only are they dangerous to glass, but they are dangerous to the employees
2. Osren Glass polish - with 3M sanding foam- effective but requires lots of elbow grease

3. Machine polish - Cutting with Meguairs Compound M105 with Meguairs Cutting Foam pad Speed - 3with Makita between 1200-1500, gently with generous misting with water....never use force or let the product dry

Then Finishing with Meguairs Polishing M205 with Meguairs Cutting Foam pad - Speed - 3with Makita between 1200-1500....repeat if necessarily


tools requires
1. polisher
2. Compound/polish
3. flood light
4. misty spray bottle
5.Tape - you do need to tape the rubber parts ...least it get whacked during your correction
