Even on 'new car' finishes as evidenced by our local car dealers' inventory lot.

What do you like to use to treat it?

Look for iron remover products. There are many. After that a clay bar will be useful

Clay worked for me. I had the Illinois Central in my back yard. Sonax makes a fallout cleaner. I never used it. Curious as to it’s intended purpose.

The iron removers get into nooks and crannies better. They are useful on wheels which can be hard to clean and to get rid of brake dust. For the body, it’s usually a one time thing unless you live somewhere close to a rail yard.

The Sonax Iron remover is ok but I liked the GTechniq one better. Plus it's a little cheaper. Works faster and removes more fall out. A great paint cleaner for lighter colored vehicles.

Eagle one pvd wheel cleaner is sub $5 and good iron removal. Adams iron remover works better but is $14.xx+ per 16oz. Chemical and mechanical (clay bar) work wonders
