Anyone have any idea of the best way to remove these spots? I've tried 5 or 6 different kinds of bug/tar remover, none have worked. I searched the web and found a few people using something called Iron-X, but I can't locate that anywhere.

Other ideas?

When I had a white car, I always used a clay bar to remove spots. Either clay it while it's still soapy when you're washing it, or spray it with detailing spray and clay it.

Are these spots on top of the paint surface? If you glide your hand over it, do you feel any bumps? If so, try using a clay bar to see if it can pick up the contaminate. If the spot still remains, you may want to use a wax that's designed to lightly cut in to correct swirls and light scratches.

Worst case would be to use a rubbing compound and go VERY LIGHTLY and VERY SLOWLY over the area.... but this would be a last resort as it can damage the paint if done improperly.

It's def on top of the clear, you can scrape it off lightly with your finger nail, but anything liquid won't remove it.

I tried some Meguiars Mirror Glaze by hand, took the spots right off. I know that's for swirl mark removal and such, wasn't sure about using on the whole rear hatch, rear bumper and sides of the car....

I bought a Meguairs Clay Bar Kit today, going to do a test area while its still clean.

Thanks for the help!

i don't know if you still have the car or not but there is a great product that worked for my car.
Bilt-Hamber - korrosol HS Tuning sells it. I don't believe anyone else in he area has it.
it shows results best on light colored cars, obviously works on every car. it leaves it feeling smooth too.
