    Hard water spots... removal tips?

    I washed my skis out at my cabin, which has hard water since we're on a well. I now have hard water spots, mostly visible on the black get coat.

    Has anyone had any luck with any products that are strong enough to remove the water spots but gentle enough not to mess up the finish?

    Blkturbo...Love the new user picture. Sinister pumpkin FTW! I want one of those. It damn near matches the decal I have on my ski.

    Haha I put it up there just for you! I got it with a $20 Kmart outfit. You can see mostly fine while driving the ski but I wouldn't wear it around traffic on the water!! Decreases your peripheral and potentially your reaction time.

    LOL! Good shit man. Definitely a cooler weather type of thing when the lake is not busy.

    it will also take your wax off of you will need to re-wax. but vinegar will defiantly work.

    True. But I don't waste my time waxing my ski. Once the spots are off, my shit's clean looking enough without wax or polish ("wax" sucks the big one anyway). As long as its garage-kept, your paint's not going anywhere anyway.
