    I assume you used IronX? https://www.autogeek.net/carpro-iro...whpWcU_eoKJ_AIky-BpeN6LhabW6mN4UaAosZEALw_wcB That's what I use after I track my VW R32. When I first used it after a track section I couldn't believe how far iron particles were thrown from the brake pads onto the body of the car. Stuff stinks when used but it does a great job.

    I have no idea what happened to this thread.

    Metallic particles imbedding in the paint happens on all cars.


    My understanding is a simple clay bar removes it and there is no need to use a deironizer (they are expensive to dump on the whole truck). I only use it on my wheels every couple washes because I don’t clay my wheels.

    The deironizer though does show you how plentiful paint contamination is and why it is important to clay bar your vehicle.

    Regarding Iron Particles and using a clay bar to remove them. Clay will not completely remove all iron particles.

    When I do a new vehicle prep, I perform the following steps.

    1) Wash
    2) Iron X
    3) Clay
    4) Rinse
    5) Paint Correct if needed
    6) Polish
    7) Coat or apply sealant
