    Great Job Phil !
    only 1 thing, ironx wont strip you everything from car paint, its not a APC or other degreaser , it removes only irons,

    Phil. great job on the car. only thing i would suggest trying is using clay first and then ironx to get iron thats already under the surface, or do it twice. let us know when you gona do white car with ironx, should see fun pics

    Yeah, only removes Iron particles but Phil did use 1Z einszett W99 to strip after.

    Didn't think W99 would foam up so much like that.

    Dang - looks great!

    So lets reiterate on what the preferred steps to take are for IronX:

    1. ACP
    2. Clay
    3. IronX?

    I know it's a new product; so maybe it will take some time to figure out the best method.

    Thanks guys the more I do Cayennes the more I don't like them LOL

    I did another car that I will post up today/tomorrow.

    I did the same steps and it came out great!

    Iron X ---> W99 ---> Clay
