First - did you use G3 on a machine or by hand? How much have you done with the G3. Was the pad/rag you used red afterward?

I ask, because if you are going to use what I advise, I would advise caution because of how thin the paint may be.....

G3 is quite strong and dries quickly.

I always use megiuars ultimate compound - it does not dry out and a little goes a long way...you just keep rubbing the area until it is clear... it will not burn your paint.

But, please think how much you have done already with G3.

For further advise, clay bar will not remove stains...it just picks out tiny specks of rubbish. Vinegar can work on mineral deposits as it breaks it down... but if it's hard water stains it might not do anything.
Regards, Hammy.
