Can anyone tell me what to use to get acid rain spots off my windows? I have tried vinegar, CLR, Bar Keepers Friend and nothing seems to work.

I have fought this battle. If it’s on the glass only, consider yourself lucky. It’s usually etched into the clearcoat as well. For glass,I recommend Griots glass polish. I have their 3” and 6” polishers as well. They make a pad specifically for polishing glass. Here is the polish:

I'm a bit lazy and learned from a detailer friend to use a single edged razor blade, held at a sharp angle, with a little vinegar to lubricate the surface. Works great with no damage. This technique is used when cars get a little overspray on the windows at a body shop. Don't try this method on the paint! ?

X100000000 on the glass polish with the little white pads. I think I use the Wolgang Perfekt Vision polish with the white pads on a dual action with a tiny backing plate, works excellent.

Works for me, leaves a really nice surface to add a coating to.

I’ve had success with the ceramic cleaner that you use on a ceramic stove-top. Did it years ago on my truck and worked well. Can’t remember where I learned it....but I’m now VERY intrigued with the Griots polish. More Shelby toys to buy!
