Default Detailed the Mazdspeed3 this weekend

Already posted these in the Mazdaspeed3 thread in OT.

I've noticed since I bought my winter wheels (+48 offset) that I've developed alot of rust spots all over the sides and rear of the car. i do 95% highway driving @ 75-80 MPH.

I used a PC 7242, White medium pad and Klasse All In One, it got 95+% of those rust spots off.

I didn't clay the car as it was close to 60 on Saturday but I had a bunch of errands to run and didn't get to the car until yesterday and it was overcast and 40 so not warm enough.

Here are the pics of the rust spots that were all over the doors and hatch area only (none on roof, hood or front bumper)

Hatch




Rear bumper


Hatch after buffing




All done




(4500k HID's and Yellow Lumanics bulbs with metal tabs removed)


Thanks for looking.

David

Thanks! My winter wheel set up, MB Gears, 17 x 7, with General Altimax Artic snow tires. I'm digging the color and contemplating powdercoating the stockers this color.

I had a really, really hard time resisting the MS3 once I saw the pearl white in person. By far the best looking color for that car. Looks great.

yah, I heard they were coming out in white, saw some pics of a Canadian MS3 (came in white since 07) and I was sold and started dealer shopping until the time was right.
