    Here's a close-up... there are a number of ways to tackle metal particles embedded in paint, for this project we tried claying and it appeared to remove the clay particles to the paint the rust stains were gone and the paint felt smooth and glassy.

    If Dave finds the rust spots return, then we might have to try the Finish Kare Paint Decontamination System.
    Hey Mike, this looks like rail dust to me. I see it a lot here in Illinois with towns near or with people who commute near rail tracks regularly and those who work near them.

    Usually involves cars/trucks with white and light silver paint (other cars have it but it’s hidden in the paint). Most of the time it’s just a simple clay to take care of it, but I've had to use polish to get some out a few times. Here are a few photos of reference from a white Silverado.




    From my experience, rail dust will return. Good exterior cleaning help keep most rail dust from returning in mass. But rail dust is a part of an environmental condition of where the vehicle is used and kept.

    Everything you wrote is correct. If you read what I've written, I'm pretty thorough in all my posts and one of the things I pointed out is Dave is a welder/fabricator and works at a place that builds and maintains Yachts. So since they grind steel and weld it's possible they are getting metal particles in the air where Dave parks Behemoth.

    If you look at the time stamp of when I buffed this truck out and posted the write-up to the forum it was BEFORE CarPro's IronX was introduced.

    If and when I wash and wax Behemoth again I'll use IronX after first washing the loose dirt off.

    We'll have Behemoth back sometime down the road... I used it for the TV Show to drive around Stuart and it was at last year's Detail Fest on display.

    Sure is fun to drive around...

    Say, is that a Ford Falcon parked next to that Behemoth?
    It never fails. Whenever anything hits the windshield, it's always on the driver's side....and at eye level!

    Yes, it's a Ford Falcoln Futura and it belongs to Max. It was Max's Dad's car and Max had it restored.

    I have a thread here about this car...


    Harvey - 1964 Ford Falcoln Futura




    It has a straight 6 cylinder with a 2-speed automatic

    wow, that thing is huge. I've done a couple of big trucks and find Iron-x before claying, reduces time spent claying, or makes it easier atleast. Nice job Mike. Looks great.
