    I have a radiant red taco. I wax very often and when I wax the bumper my rag becomes red. When I wax any other part of the truck there is no red on my rag.
    Whats the problem, what should I do?

    Lots baby!
    There is no clearcoat on the front bumpers. This is why you see red on your towel.

    everywhere else the clear coat is fine. Even on the spots where the sun hits the most. So what do I do to get the front bumper shiny again?
