Road dust on rear quarter and back of vehicle

Anyone have any tricks to keep the rear of of vehicle from collecting road dust? I have a rally yellow camaro and a few days after a wash, back of vehicle pretty much from the gills to the rear bumper get a nice black dust on it. I have tried car duster but seems to stick.

Get a good sealant and coat of wax on the panel, it will come right off.

Every other week or so I spray that lower panel with Adams quick sealant, it works wonders.

I think there is no way to prevent that.
I have also a yellow Camaro and I don't like it when my car is dirty.

So I clean my car after each ride with Swiffer Dusters.

For a continuance quite expensive but it is it worth.

You should try having summit white, dust clings to those areas like grim death :(

When the car travels, there's negative pressure on the rear end of it, so all the dust goes kicking up. There's really no way to prevent this - the back of the car is always the dirtiest.

oddly enough a waxed car will attract dirt and dust faster than a non-waxed car....

But a waxed car is 1839432 times easier to clean.

It's brake dust...and it clings to the body due to static cling. Fact.

Switch to ceramic brake pads and watch as most of your problem disappears.

"Fast cars have rubber on the quarter panels...you sissies better knock it off!"
This is someone's sig on here...thought it appropriate!

Try having my color; I walk past my car and it gets dirty!

Believe it or not, but you wouldn't see any scratches.

I can't afford it to damage my car.
