Washed her today and took a Mothers clay bar to her. The car had a nasty case of something I learned is called industrial fallout. It had little rust colored specks all over it which I guess are tiny pieces of metal that float in the air in areas with certain industry present and embed themselves in the paint. It's especially fond of white cars since they show the rust color quite nicely.

Not the wheels, but I'm thinking about it. I did plasti-dip my front "grill". Easy to do, and I like the way it came out.

I used Plasti-Dip all over my Mini. But not on the wheels (they were already black).

I'm curious if the back of the wheels would have to be done as well? what about the lug nuts.

Hoping to find someone who's already "been there done that" :D

I know it has been a year since you did this, but please tell me you waxed the car after claying it. The clay takes off wax also.
