Have you considered clay barring your truck?

Do it! I finally broke down and did it and it works wonders. I had these little rust bugs i just couldnt get off with washing and with just a little elbow grease they came right off and it gave my truck a nice shine and it now feels silky smooth. This stuff is great

Before


After


Its kinda hard to see but theres a bunch of little rusty colored spots and now theres not

All washed clayed and waxed

Those rust bugs look like a angle grinder was cutting something a little to close to the truck ?

I tried the Mothers clay bar and it didn't do squat on my color

Looks good on yours !

That may be when i was fabbing up new front bumper mounts after my ranch hand ripped the stock mounts to shreds

But that may be it didnt seem like it was rusting the panels and it took of some tar that kept plaguing me for months. I too used the mothers brand. it worked good for me, definitely a pain in the a$$ with a CCLB though...lots of surface area

ya the grinder flings little specs of hot metal and it will embed in the paint a little

then those specs rust

welding does the same thing

it also embeds in the windows /watches/sunglasses LOL

Rail dust and pollen, etc. do that also. Looks awesome, white is such an amazing color when clean. My wifes 2012 Escape has rail dust on it and I need to caly it this summer for sure.

Yea i love black and someday ill paint my truck black but the white does have a great color to it when its clean and when its not clean it doesnt even look that dirty like black does the very next day after you wash it.
