Hard water spots?

My new 29 gal has some hard water spots around the interior top portion of the rim of the tank below the black vinyl trim. I am SUPER OCD about clean glass. I have tried everything, including vinegar and fine steel wool and it wont come off. Theres nothing in it yet as i am refinishing the cabinet so im still in the cleaning and phase. Any suggestions?

Leave a piece of white paper towel or something with no color / text soaked in vinegar on it for a day or so and carefully using a razor blade it should just come right off.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

Glass, I assume? Razor blade from a box knife.
