Stuff deep in my paint

Hey guys,

I have noticed over the last 7 months when I clean my truck there is alot of small dots deep inside of the paint you can feel the paint is rough and contaminated so I got a mothers clay bar and tried out my tailgate. I got about half of the stuff off and got it down smooth on the paint but there was still a good bit deep in the paint. I bought the truck nov. 07 and never let the truck sit with salt on it. The under side doesn't have much rust at all it has always been a middle TN truck till I bought it.

In some spots it actually looks like rust and it is EVERY where but worse on the tailgate. I tried to take some pictures but even though my truck is white you still can't see anytihng.

Any ideas before I take it to just have it repainted?

Re: Stuff deep in my paint

Sounds like brake dust ,,clay bar or buffing should work...

Re: Stuff deep in my paint

It is all over the truck on the tail gate even on the hood. I had a guy quote me 200 bucks to machine buff and glaze it.

I hit it with a mothers clay bar and removed half of it but not the deep stuff.

Re: Stuff deep in my paint

It maybe what they call "fall out" or "rail dust". Find a detail supply or automotive paint store. They have an acid wash that will remove most of it.If not, a little rubbing compound, cool day, few beers and alot of rubbing.
