milly,s roof and bum have gone a bit faded pinky looking
now the bonnet was really bad but the garage resprayed that foc

have tried t-cut but nothing just a bit more shiny

so is there any other good products out there that are worth a try to revive the paint

G3 then G10 buffing compound - if you can source a mechanical buffer then you will be able to sort it, use the G3 to cut the paint back - then the G10 to bring it back to a nice surface, then a good wax/polish to protect and add shine

Has the whole car been painted in the past scrog?
Reason i ask is it should have clearcote on there and it has uv filters to stop the sun bleaching the pigment.
You need to try machine polishing a small part to see if it leaves colour on the polishing pad.

Hope that helps.

no parked on drive garage full of kids push bikes freezers that sort of stuff

dont think it has had any other work done apart from the stuff we sorry Mrs Scrog had done
hes has owned the car for 2.5 months
roof and boot were a bit pink but not as bad as the bonnet was
trust me at a glance you would not notice but as you get up close (cause i wash and polish it )you get to see it more
will try a mop and some g10 (thats the fine stuff is it )
cheers will post some pics of before and after when she's done

I'd just get the bonnet re-sprayed. Different compounds can only do so much to bring the colour back into the paint.
