    You know how the boot stripes get tiny orange specks that will not come off during washing and are oblivious to clay. We'll yesterday I did a full detail and as usual I was going to rid the stripes of the specks during the polish phase. I was doing the chrome exhaust with Never Dull - cotton wading treated with a metal cleaner - works great BTW. Any way I thought I'd hit the stripes with Never Dull just to see if it had any effect...
    BINGO! Took the specks right off. Now there's another option if the time isn't right for polishing. No photos but here's a simple graphic:

    Stripe Before -
    |.*.| (specks)

    Stripe After -
    | | (no specks)

    Orange specks? Is it rail-dust from transporting by train? I used to see that all the time.
