Water spots on matte vinyl wrap

My hood is currently wrapped from Chevy being the matte vinyl hood, and has a lot of hard water spots on it. I have been using Adamís polishes matte detailer, and the hard water spots are there. Any suggestions on getting rid of them? Thanks for the help.

Water spots on vinyl stripes are tough.

CarPro PERL would be what I would try first. If that doesnt work, I would use a very low abrasive polish and try to polish them out with a machine on a very slow speed. Hand polishing may work.

The problem is that matte vinyl is not made for abrasion.

The good thing is, vinyl stripes are easy and cheap to remove and replace yourself.

I have used our Revive hand polish to remove water spots on vinyl be good success. However it will make them have a little shine, that would probably go away in time.....I believe.
