I swear, when i look at the driver side of my truck, i see a whole bunch of rust colored spots on it. I can scratch some of it off, but the stain is still there. Do xploders rust fast?. I lookd in the holes on the doors, and all around the truck, i dont see anyrust. Theres lots of spots on the driver side and the back 5th door. The truck is white with 50k. Its a 99.

You live in KS so you get snow and then they put salt on the road?

Do you live on a gravel road? It could be rocks being thrown up by your front tires.

Sounds like it is just surface rust, but it well get worse instead of better. Best thing is to get it removed and repainted.

You might try buffing and a good wax, but not sure if it will help.

Try a clay bar. They should get rid of those marks.
