Removing Waterstains from Alumines bumps

Folks

Wilson gets parked where the sprinklers hit it all the time
I have white water stains/build up on the black powercoat

anyone have any easy fix to remove and restore finish

I have the stuff that i ordered that someone wrote about
to keep em black, but it does not seem to remove the waterstain build up

Wilsons Summer debut Tour de 395 / Bryce / Zion starts tomarrow and i want
to put His best bumper forward

I use vinegar and water mixture to remove them from everything I own.

Re: Removing Waterstains from Alumines bumps

Bill ,
Here are three suggestions that work for the removal of Calcium /Water Spots , Start with the White Vinegar and preferably soft water , If this fails try Lime Away and my favorite for the very difficult water spotting is the CLR , available at most Home Depot and Lowes stores . On glass surface's you can use a mild Scotch Brite Sponge/Scouring Pad .

Re: Removing Waterstains from Alumines bumps

Hey Greg, not to steal Robs thunder but what do you think about Fluid Film? I sprayed it on my bumper and it made it look like new. Pros or Cons out there?

Re: Removing Waterstains from Alumines bumps

Dave ,
That is a great idea , I have used it for my Boat's and never even considered using on the SportsMobile . It also works well for Gun's and Reel's that are subjected to harsh environments just be careful not to get any on the Len's of your Optic's . I will give it a try on the Van .
Thank you Dave

Re: Removing Waterstains from Alumines bumps

Bill,

I am sort of a detail nut and I buy a lot of products to try out. Many do not work very well and are a waste of money. I bought the "Ducky" brand water sport remover to use on my boat and it works very well and really fast. Almost magic, better than CLR or lime away. Works perfect on the paint on my Yamaha outboard and on fiberglass gellcoat.

It is at West Marine but cheaper at Parker Yamaha.

I was blown away on how the fluid film brought back the jet black look, something I couldn't get with wax. Just don't spray it on; spray it on a cloth to apply it and then wipe it down with a clean dry cloth. It didn't really collect dust like an oil product and repelled water pretty good. Oh... don't get any on the disc brakes

Re: Removing Waterstains from Alumines bumps

If you think that you might want to try the Ducky products you can purchase more reasonably thru Amazon or we used to purchase direct from them at their Pasadena , California headquarters .
