Hey guys, I know this is off topic but I'd like to contribute to the detailing forum as much as I can and get this place a bit more active. I thought about starting an "open detail thread" for general detailing posts, but didn't want to start that thread with something off topic.
I've been detailing ever since I learned the wrong way to do things working at BMW Cleveland. I learned a lot of what not to do, and really became addicted to cleaning cars - I don't know what it is, but it's definitely "my zen."
Working on a Ferrari FF in Pozzi Blue. Amazing car, the interior is incredible and the paint is really good looking. It's brand new but is suffering from some serious hard water spotting in the clear bra, particularly the quarters behind the front wheels.
I prepped with a 2 bucket wash and Iron Cut, followed by Mothers yellow clay and an alcohol/water wipedown. I've tried all my usual tactics with clear bra's - 1:1 Water:Iso-Alcohol mix, white vinegar, various pad/polish combinations on a Flex RO - but nothing is clearing it up. Some of the oxidation was removed, but the spots remain... I've ordered some XPEL protective film cleaner in a last ditch effort, but don't know what else to try.
Any suggestions are welcome
After prep, before polish (same on both sides)
Left side is after 2 passes of Megs Medium Cut on an orange polishing pad
