    Having clayed ss many times...it depends on whether or not it`s really oxidized. On decently-maintained SS it`s never an issue at all for me.

    Just curious, but why do you think the Miata got so contaminated over the winter? Just your conditions there? I guess it seems like many people are encountering this more than I am, and I find that odd...

    Lots of atmospheric fallout and they put ash on my road in the winter. That kicks up a dust storm as people drive up and down the road.

    Ah, interesting! Never know what that stuff`ll be like I bet...I gather it doesn`t always just wash right off.

    It takes some force to clean the single stage after winter. My clearcoated vehicles fair much better.

    Huh, never woulda thunk it! I drove my single-stage Volvo as my Winter Car for years and never had to do anything more than with my b/c ones. Oh, [snap] now that I`ve thought of that I`ll probably spend the rest of the day missing that car, really liked it...
