That comes probably from your brakes or industrie
That is metal particle in the air that comes on your paint and with humidity that begins to rust
Good Polish and it s go away
Here in Europe we take this product may be you have the same in the states

Rust in paint

Get a good clay bar. It will pull all the small debris off your paint that a wash doesn't.

if its just small spots...almost looks like a gold flake in your paint it is Rail Dust. do a search on it. can come from anything..brakes. being shipped on rail cars, hence the name....any small pieces of metal stuck on your clear coat. A good clay bar session and you will be all fixed up. I took mine and had it done as mine was completely covered. White shows the worst

lots o rust under the body. i cant keep it painted fast enough. I fear the rear bumper is going to fall off.

They don't make them like they used to. or rather we are putting some harsh chemicals on the roads now a days that is killing our rides. Sucks,

One of the changes here in Vermont in the last few years is increased use of brine solutions during winter. The brine seems to get into every nook and cranny and rot the bodies twice as fast as the old salt on the highway did. Nasty nasty stuff.

i car pool to work and i am seriously thinking next year that i may just pay the guy i carpool with to drive the entire winter and then we can start switching back and forth when the roads clear up. that should save the body a few more years.

I wish that they hwy depts would just do nothing but plow or better yet let it be and leave it for only those with 4wds.

I hear up north in Iowa or the Dakotas they just drive on the snow and leave it until spring. Never clearing the roads. That would be nice.
