Who on TCG does this work? She needs claybar and sealant for sure before winter.

I don't get the rail dust thing - my dart had it real bad and it's never seen any form or shipping - everything was built and bought in Belvidere - no train rails and why only white lol

Rail dust comes from brake dust as well, it's more of a slang term in my opinion. It's those small orange dots that make you freak out that ur truck is rusting!! Every car/truck paints gets it, just white you see it. Other paints you feels it. From my experience clay bar is the only way to remove from paint safely without hard abrasives using buffer. It's just a very tedious job since ur working with a bar about 4"x4". Now I have always wanted to try the clay bar gloves just wouldn't want to be taking on and of as you wipe off each section

Depending how bad ur truck is, and I can't imagine it would be being new I would say about 2hrs to clay bar ur truck and that's making a few passes on each panel. Then you need to polish/wax and sealant right after. I used JetSeal last Oct on my truck and I have a lot less "rail dust" and I was able to just buff out truck last wknd and all was gone. That reflection!!!!

I'll save you a lot of time clay barring. Just buy IronX and spray it on and let it do its work. Then do a real quick clay of the vehicle.
