Friends, we need your help solving this mystery.  Our friend Jerry reported an accumulation of this mysterious blue powder around the doors of his 2016 Subaru Outback.  According to Jerry:

  • The blue mystery powder shows up randomly and has happened on all four fenders/doors. Normally by the front wheels.
  • It is a powder. It wipes off easily.  
  • Does not seem to be related to windshield-wiper fluid use.
  • Does not seem to be the result of an abrasion, since it wipes off and comes back.
  • The car has never been repainted.
  • The car has had a recent brake job.
  • Jerry says the only “out of the ordinary” driving he’s done lately is to go camping, and his daily drive takes him past a construction site.
