Default water spots on CF hood?

i have what appears to be water spots on my one year old carbon fiber hood.You can only see them in certain light. I'm not sure if its water spots or something else. I washed my car today and tried clay baring and waxing it. I also tried the vinegar method and that did nothing. I dont have a buffer so i wouldn't be able to try that. But is there anything else i can do? I attempted to take a picture of it but they didn't come out to good.

Did you try using MX7? Its a acidic solvent and I know that all the car detailers here use it to take out hard water spots. They have two types of MX7, one for the car body, and the other for glass. Dont use the MX7 that is purposely only used for the car body on windows as it will etch it. If you are not familiar with MX7, please do alittle research. When applying MX7 on the car body, like waxing, do alittle section at a time. Then after rubbing it with MX7, you nutrilize the acidic solvent with a wet towel to nutrilize the acidic solvent, then wipe with a microfiber. Hope that helps.

Thanks! I guess this is my last option. The only way to get that stuff is to order it right?
