A bit of feedback on colour restore

Post by scirocco_ne » Thu May 02, 2019 2:13 pm

Just a heads up to anyone looking at some faded paint in need of tlc

Our car is rough body wise, solid but a few can jobs here and there up close.

Me and the Mrs put a afternoons work and some hand buffing in with meguires ultimate compound on and the results were excellent.

As long as there is paint left that stuff is amazing for bringing up old paint without taking alot off. The car is a lovely red again and the faded patches disappeared :D
