I noticed it when i was washing my car on monday, and found "rail rust" eating into my clearcoat, its horrid all over the sides and back, from the stupid plows on the highway. Suffice to say its costing me 100 to have it buffed cleaned and waxed at a detail place. ugh

Welcome to the world of Honda-Acura paint. The worst is any white, especially Taffetta. After winter it is a full day of claybar action on the whip with a fresh wax. Sucks but what can you do. I love white!

It got clay barred last month but the rail rust came from the snow plows on the highway. Its getting cleaned, clay barred, buffed, and lots of wax from the detailers, cause its about 31 degrees outside.

Try my detailing tutorial (CLAYBAR TUTORIAL) video sticky in the DETAILING section :D

Iron particles usually are caused by following too close to other vehicles, riding your brakes, driving on the highway a lot, following a road near a rail road, etc.

It should be taken care of RIGHT away.

I had what appeared to be rust speckles all over my front bumper awile back. I have no idea where it came from. At first I was scared it wasn't coming off. Then I broke out the good ol clay bar and it took it right off. This was me when I got all that crap off---->:D
