    Orange spots on 2006 Seadoo

    I have a two 2006 Seadoo GTX's and there are these dark orange spots all over. Especially in the foot wells. Ill post pics to show you what im talking about. I did try Tuff Stuff and some would go away but a lot stayed. I always take out any left over water from skiing. Click image for larger version.

    Bug droppings?

    Are the footwells covered when stored? Tree or pant droppings?

    I don't cover them because there in my garage ALL the time. We never leave them out side. I don't have any idea what this is. Maybe the white paint is getting old?? Does anyone know what this is or at least seen it???

    They almost look like tiny rust spots. Been doing any grinding on steel in your garage near the skis? Try some diluted CLR and see if it comes of. Worth a shot!

    Well I had a somewhat similar problem. Little tiny spots that look strikingly the same as what you have showed up in a few spots on the paint of my old truck. After rubbing at them a bit and they partially disappeared, I tried the CLR for the hell of it and they came off. Few months later I had a few more pop up again. After some digging I came to find out its from train rail dust that was floating around and settled on my truck. Then when it rained the specs of dust rusted on the surface of the paint and stuck there. I mean there was train tracks somewhat close but nowhere NEAR where I parked my truck. But I guess anything is possible.

    Are the garage door overhead steel tracks grinding on the garage door wheels?

    Idk about that i have to check. I got some Motheres Back-To-Black for some black parts on the ski that are a little lighter than the stock black. So maybe it might work on the rust? Im not to hopeful but ill try anything at this point.

    I've done just about everything to try and get this out. Does anyone know what this crap is? I think its rust but I can't get it off. Is it INSIDE the gel coat? If so, how did that happen???
    Thanks
