Hi, I am just wondering if anyone out there has a way to get the rust spots off my paint that is not using a clay bar and then waxing?

Thanks In advance
Jon

I've done it before using rubbing compound, polish and then a sealant wax. Why do you not want to clay bar and wax. A full clay bar and wax of the hole vehicle would really set the paint off.

I guess I will need to break out the clay bar again it seems like it comes right back after its done are there any brake pads that prevent this from happening?

Car pro IronX....spray on, wash off. I use nanoskin auto scrub which is like a buffing pad but used like a clay bar. I have had great results with this against rail dust.

There are some other methods out there, but I think that the clay bar is still the most effective. :favorites37:
I agree..you can buff it as well. But not everyone knows how to use one correctly...So I recommend the clay bar, everybody can use that lol.

Holy crap i can do my whole truck in 2 hours.

I can do the whole truck with wash, claybar, wash, light polish, wax in 4-6 hours.

probably cause i only do it once a year lol... and white trok.. lots of rust up here, sadly :/

should probably set aside more days throughout the summer to clay bar it and keep it nice so that it doesn't have to be an all day affair
