Default Getting rid of "rail rust"

Okay, my car is white.. It looked white when I bought it..no spots or nothing. Couple days ago it was warm out so I took my car to the wash. Washed it good and everything and saw a bunch of gold spots along the side of my car and a lot on the back end of the vehicle.. So I visit the local car wash place and the guy said it was rail rust. The dust off the train wheels (I guess my car was transported by train) stuck on the car paint and it's now rusting.. I tried to scrape it off...a few spots came off with no issues...but there's a lot of them that are stuck on the vehicle. Is there anything I can use to get it off with just a spray and wipe... I tried WD-40...removed a little bit but not much. Any ideas? Local body shop wants to charge me $125 for an acid bath...which I find a little overpriced.

Go get a clay bar from your local autozone or something of that nature. It will take time but it will come off. You need to get some lube also (no not that kind of lube). Meguires sells a kit with both of them in it. Spray the lube on and take that clay over it with good amount of pressure and it will come off. If that does not work pm me. I have something else you can try.

Never Dull Metal Polish removes rust without ruining the finish. {apply no pressure. just lightly go over it. turning the wadding to a clean part of the wadding ever-so-often}
[anyone who speaks badly about doing /\this/\... has obviously not tried it... neverdull works faster and makes less scratches than a claybar or rubbing compound]

you'll need to wash and wax the areas afterward.

-------------------------------------------------------

Most likely those spots exist because your front brakes are worn out and need replaced.


PS.. the local car wash guy seems to be an idiot.

how old is your car?
Is it not still under warranty?
Have you tried a buffing compound and by hand trying to buff it out?


I don't know how its rusting. That's what your paint does it prevents rust.
Can you see on the back side of the body panel to make sure it's not rusted all the way through?

This rail rust I've never heard of it.
Take it to a couple of different body shops get some estimates and then return to the place you bought it demand them to fix it.
I personally think the whole panel is rusted throughout.

I've never seen a panel rust from the paint side without any body damage it all.
Now if the car had been in an accident and someone waited to repair it maybe?


enough with my morning rambling go check the back of the freakin panel make sure it's not rested through go to a local body shop see if they won't give you some buffing compound.
Buff that shit out.
if it is rest all the way through call your insurance company and ask him what the hell to do

Yeah I figured that. Yeah it's probably from my front brakes. I have to get the rotor machined and the brakes replaced..But I don't have $200 atm.
