    i went to the ranch last week and got some mud on it i washed it a day later and now theres smuges everywhere that wont come off. I have tried waxing, claying, and tried a compound and still wont come off.

    thanks

    I was south of San Antonio in the mud some time back, and noticed after washing I had a residue on fender behind rear wheels - clay would not remove. I use Griot's Garage products, and took some Machine Polish #2 and took my time with Porter Cable random orbital buffer and sponge pads. After a few passes, and some pressure (random orbital is safe - I use it on wife's BMW...), the stuff came right off, Followed up with Polish #3, and Sealant. Seems that after I have covered the whole truck with Griot's sealant, nothing sticks. Hopefully your paint is not etched by the meadow muffins... How long was the stuff on your truck, before you washed it off? And/or, did the sun bake it on before you washed it off?

    the stupid red clay/mud whatever the hell it is in the state of Georgia can stain the paint forever..found out the hard way and that stuff dries as if it were concrete..hard as hell to get off. man i hated being stationed out there
