deep water spot removal??

so i was wondering if anyone has any tips for me.

vehicle is a red 69 mustang that has been left outside for a few years, uncovered/unwashed, and has resulted in some nasty water spots/stains.

googled on how to remove and saw that meguiars scratch x 2.0 was sufficient.

help ?

if the paint is soft enough, you can get the Gtechniq P1 + Gtechniq tri-foam pad. The only polish that I know of that is an actual polish that you can elbow grease with.
Most off the shelf stuff are fillers.

You can use Menz Power Finish by hand as well with good results. When used in conjunction with one of the LC hand pads we carry, you should be able to get good results. Doing it by hand won't be easy, but it'll work.
