I use clay bar and ipo(pure alcohol) to get rid of water mark. It works but very time consuming. U nid to wash car, clay bar, wipe clean and then wipe with alchohol...easily 3hours.
I wash frequently and yet water mark still unavoidable. I do found out that after clay bar treatment, paint surface is more sticky and tend to get dirty faster
Thanks for the advice...

The only way to reduce
watermarks is so keep your car dry at all times. As rain water is acidic, it will rapidly etch into the surface if it is not wiped off. It also contains mineral deposits that trap itself into the paint in those microscopic pits, which is why you see marks on your paintwork.
The only way is preventive maintenance, or a polish to remove it. Given that we live in a country with lots of smog, pollution and constant rain watermarks are highly inevitable.
How to avoid being caught by rain and keep it dry every time... i think a bit hard for city life and working ppl like us and some more malaysia weather rain so often, i tot after doing sierra glow, i dont need to wash and wipe car that often, but turn out still i need to maintain it every time after rain.....

After applied SG, we r advice not to polish or wax our car. This will remove SG coat. The only way to maintain the car is to use clay bar. But u don have to do it every time after car wash. Maybe once a month depending on your available free time. As for using of alchohol, it is recommended to do it as often as possible. So, its up to individual to decide the frequency of claybar washing and alchohol usage. For me, I noticed that after clay bar, car paint is more shining and looks like showroom condition. Downside is, it attracts dirts very fast.....
Thanks for the advice!

Ive used SG for 6 months now. The shine seems to be a bit less than before. Paint surface is also not smooth anymore as compared to when u do a new coat of polish. I clay bar the car about once a month. Is this normal? Any of you experiencing the same?

Did the water spots appear only now or was it there before?
No..it came out recently just after doing SG for 2 months, and turn out quite obvious, when u walk near by the car, u can see it clearly!This post has been edited by stepling88: Nov 15 2012, 04:29 PM
