Looking for some advise on how to remove some spots on a black Mercury cowling. I used some wax and rubbed the spots with little success. I was curious if a dose of rubbing compound will remove them or cause noticeable damage to the finish. Any tips are much appreciated and thanks.

9% white vinegar? But I'm surprised the wax didn't work.

The best thing I have found is hydrochloric acid. I get it in a diluted form in a product called Purekleen. I’ve been using it for 2 years. I spray it on wipe it with a wet bench brush rinse it off and go in the house. I imagine toilet bowl cleaner would also work but I haven’t tried it.

Lime-a-way. Spray it on dry surface, wipe with a wet sponge then rinse. Wax afterwards.

I use the Starbrite boat guard. Great on scum line, metal flake and on my cowling. Good stuff.

Ducky’s water spot remover has worked the best for me. Especially on the mercury cowlings.
