i've used a clay bar kit for water spots on windows before. i don't recall using it on the paint specifically for water spots though

Re: Water spots on paint and window, what to use for removal?

I hooked up a home sediment filter in my garage last year. We have well water. This year I also ran a bypass, or force pass, whichever way you look at it, so now I can open a valve and close another then I get softened, filtered water out my spiggot in the garage. This way I can wash my cars, camper and truck at home. I guess once you get them cleared then this may help in the future. The filter is only 30-40 bucks at Lowes, refill filter cartridge is only $10 for two.

Clay bar followed by Megs swirl X. That's what I use and do to remove those water sposts.

Best option is to completely and thoroughly clean windshield with 50/50 mixture of pure water and vinegar, dry completely, clay bar with the right aggressiveness bar, clean again and dry, polish with D/A buffer with medium cut polish, orange pad, then seal with rain x or favorite paint sealant. You will have crystal clear glass that is protected.

Agreed^^^ Sealant for paint works but doesnt bond to the glass like it does on paint, so it doesnt last as long and less bead action. Better to use job specific products
