The temperature was just above freezing this afternoon, so I was able to give the car a good hand wash outside for the first time this year. After I got it all clean, I noticed the car was COVERED in those tiny little surface rust spots. Now this isn't the first time I've encountered this. I know it's not the car that's rusting, just the tiny little metal pieces in the air that happened to land on the surface. And I know how to get rid of them. I was just surprised at how much of the car was covered. The car is always parked indoors. I guess because I haven't been able to wash the car every week like I do in the summer, it's all built up over the last few months.

Gotta love rail dust. Keep in mind, that after you clay, you should REALLY polish the car, and get rid of any swirls, r.i.d.s, and scratches before applying a sealant or wax.
