mrimark is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
I've heard vinegar and water can help take out water rings on finish...
but what ratio of vinegar to water should I use? Is it OK to do entire car, or
should I just limit it to where water rings are (mostly trunk and hood).And should I
apply wax afterwards?
Thanks for any help!
Mark

Yeah, no don't do that.

A good car wash, followed by a prewax cleaner [or claybar], followed by a few coats of wax would be a MUCH smarter idea

Water marks? Assuming they are stuck in the paint should come out with a light compound or clay bar.

To stop it from happening, just wash your car a little more often, and use a shammy to dry it (if your really lazy then take it for a spin on the highway to dry it)
