Ive got a big problem with brake dust up the sides of me car. It just wont shift and leaves a rough browny/yellow surface that feels 'baked' onto my paint. Its horrible and seems to show up even more when my car is washed.
I bought some of that IronCut a few months ago and used it for the first time yesterday to see if it'd work on the problem brake dust.
I knew it'd have its work cut out with the amount of carbon-metallic race pad dust up the sides of me car that ive not been able to shift so far.
I washed and dried me car and sprayed the clear liquid on (smells like a stinkbomb) and it got to work straight away turning purple where there were metal deposits and just rinsed off after a couple of minutes. It semed to work quite well TBH, but didnt shift all of it cos there was still yellow marks and a slightly rough feeling surface, abliet less rough.
Due to the sheer amount of dust and contaminates up the sides of my car to start with, I thought i'd give it another spray, this time there was less colour change so it'd obviously removed a fair bit of crap the first time but not all of it and after this application, the surface felt far smoother.
I was very happy with the results although it still didnt remove it all and there is still a very slight yellowy/brown residue on top of my paintwork. I get the feeling that I could have carried on and spraying and rinsing over and over again to make sure I removed it all/or the bottle ran out whichever was sooner but id used about a third of the bottle as it was and ran out of time so I left it at that.
Overall, I was very impressed, cheers for the heads up Phil. It didnt remove it all but if I used the whole bottle I think it would have been somewhere near. I cant emphasise enough the size of the problem I had with the brake dust up the sides of me car though. If you ran the back of your hand down the doors, it felt a bit like fine snadpaper, it was horrible stuff that just didnt seem to shift so even though it didnt shift it all I struggle to think of another product that would have worked so well. From what I can gather even claying wouldnt have been able to shift this stuff - does anyone know if this is correct?
Also, does anyone know if the IronCut will affect and polish/wax/sealant that may already be on the paint?
Heres a few pics of it at work, bearing in mind it sprays on colourless...
