    Took my bonnet bra off to find this! A severe case of water etch! Not only has my bonnet got specks of water etching it now has this monstrosity!

    Someone has got to tell me there is a cure! Detailing spray, colour restoring polish...........ANYTHING

    That should come out with some old fashioned elbow grease mate. Just make sure you wax it afterwards mate....

    It will need quite a bit of 'work', but SRP or Paint Renovator from AG should do it.

    It takes a lot of elbow grease and be sure to wax afterwards-cause paint restorer is really paint stripper

    "Super resin polish" it's a lightweight colour restorer in many cases :-) Also has polymers to fill in scratches.....

    Im just bumping this to the top because im having no luck at all with it, the rest of the car looks great when polished up, its just the bonnet that is getting to me, its faded where the bonnet bra has been and has water etching on it:( i really need a decent solution to get rid of all this as its really making the car look awful.

    Any help would be great, i have tried AG colour restorer, paint renovator but nothing seems to penetrate the paint enough to remove blemishes ect.

    Someone please help
