Curious if an acid wash or decontamination kit is safe for Starshield or if there is something similar that is? I want to clean some fallout, ClayMagic clay bar worked great on the painted surfaces, was looking for a solution for the clear bra.

don't know what you mean by "fallout" ........:shrug: I use a clay bar on my starshield.......no problem. You might try Turtle Wax Bug & Tar remover.....works great on almost anything....even built up rubber from track days.

I think it is industrial fallout or acid rain. These little brownish reddish colored spots, not tree sap. I tried claying the Starshield, got most of it out but not all...

I've found that the stoner brand bug and tar remover works great for removing debris (rubber, bugs etc..) on the starshield. Just let it sit for a little while then flush with water. If this doesn't work, I think the particles may be embedded in the plastic material and may be difficult to remove. A good cleaner wax may also work. Good luck.

Somewhat on the same subject; Do you guys get a a lot of brake dust on your car. At least I think it's brake dust - a fine blackish mist that covers the car. I spend half a day making my car perfect, go for short drive, then spend more time cleaning the car again when I get back home. I have original pads and A048 tires. Could the the original pads really be that soft? Are the A048's shedding some skin?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I've used all sorts of chemicals on my paint protection film and have never had a problem yet. Clay, plexus, nouvas, turtle wax and 3M bug and tar remover, brake clean, simple green, citrus cleaners, zaino, etc.
