rust spots on silver RAM
Hey guys, anyone else have rust spots on their paint, its not rust from body rot because it also appears on the plastic painted parts. It seems a lot like "rail dust" problems I've had on previous GM cars.

Yup my white one had it, buffed and waxed it, all came off luckily.

thanks i was getting ready to try this stuff called Iron X that is supposedly made for this type of issue on paint.

It can also come from brake dust.

Clay bar normally works good at removing rail dust.

Ironx won't completely remove it. It breaks down and dissolve iron particles and the stuff is heavily scented so use it outside...or in a well ventilated area. You'll still have to clay afterwards to remove the remaining. the rust spots are a combination of brake dust, rail dust and environmental contaminants that are currently sitting on top of your paint. every vehicle gets it but it's more obvious on the lighter coloured vehicles. If left on the paint long enough it will actually etch through the paint and can cause rust to form

When I was younger and I started working for the dealer I remember b/c I was the "kid" they had me clay bar an entire silver magnum due to rail dust, took lots of work but I got it off
