I'm sorry for my late update on this, but even after trying Meguiars Ultimate Compound, I can not get rid of the water stains. The stains must have gone under the clear coat.... I think the next step is to invest in a Porter Cable.
Thanks everyone! I called Meguiars today to get their recommendation. They told me to try the following product, Ultimate Compound. http://www.meguiarsdirect.com/detail/MEG+G17216 I'm going to give this a try tomorrow and let you know how it goes.
Thanks everyone for your replies! I tried the vinegar method. Mixed distilled vinegar and distilled water, then applied that to my car with a soft cloth. The interesting part is that the water stains on the roof came off but not the ones on the hood. I just tried ScratchX but since I don't have a polisher I applied it with my hand. It didn't make any difference. What should I try next? Should I invest in a polisher such as Porter Cable or Mothers PowerBall 4Paint and try with ScratchX?
Hi everyone! After parking my car outside for three weeks while on vacation (yes it was a big mistake!), my 1999 Zenith Blue 996 became completely dirty. I washed the car three times but I just could not get rid of the water stains on the hood and roof. After some research on the internet and this forum, i learned that using distilled vinegar would help so I tried, and that got rid of the water stains on the roof but not the hood. I even used Meguiar's Smooth Surface Clay Kit and Cleaner Wax but that didn't help at all. It might be hard to see but attached is the photo of the hood after making all the attempts. Do you have any advice on how to get rid of the stains? Thanks so much for your help!
Just purchased RTS for my 1999 996 coupe and while I was trying to mount it, I noticed that two of the screws in the mounting holes are rusted therefore can not be taken out with a screw driver. I found this post, took trim off inside the car and went under the headliner so I can unscrew the nut from under the headliner but I'm stucked so I took a picture of it. Is this what I'm supposed to be able to unscrew with a hex rench? As far as I can see, this piece will not unscrew. Your help is appreciated!! Thanks!
nstevo replied to nstevo's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks for everyone's suggestions! Looks like Fister's work is approved by a lot of people on RennTech, I feel a lot confident now. This is just a great website, I love it!! Fister, I'll contact you shortly so I can get this mod done. Looking forward to it!!
Hello, I am an owner of a 1999 996 coupe. I've had my car for 4 years now, and I'm looking into add some excitement to my car without spending lots of $. Through a classified website I found this guy in California who modifies the mufflers for $175, and he has a video on youtube that went through his muffler mod. Here are the pictures of the mod. http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/pts/670153037.html What do you think about this mod? If it's not recommended then I'm going to stay away but $175 for this mod to add nice sound to my car is pretty attractive. Thanks!
