Paintwork!
« on: June 11, 2010, 23:32:39 PM »
Evening all.

My car has been having some work done recently (brakes, wishbones, rear bushes, cambelt - you know - the cally usuals), but now for some unkown reason, my paintwork is fading. Seems to have happened since being in the garage. Maybe its the UV lights.

So to tackle this, I had a going over it with some Autoglym paint renovator which did help, but not a great deal. Anyone got any hints or product recommendations for bring back the yellowness?

Cheers

Stew

Not yet, too much else on at the moment but hopefully soon. The poor old girl deserves a shine again!
