just make sure u apply a good coat of wax after claying if u choose to try it. as claying removes old wax.

My guess is "rail dust" during transport from the factory back in the day the steel dust got on the paint and is just sitting on the surface.

They use a special cleaner to get it off and the clay bar it. My suggestion is take it to a detail shop. My 2007 white truck had that, and it showed up in 2008, and this is what that was.

Wouldnt the rail dust have been on the car since it was new tho? I have only noticed this in the last 8 months or so and its getting worse

As far as taking it to a detail shop.. my step dad manages a body shop so, do you know what they usually do?
