Sun-faded paintwork

Asked by Jan 09, 2009 at 09:01 PM about the 1997 Vauxhall Calibra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Anybody got any clues how to restore my paintwork on the front wings, back to the original Flame Red? Whoever had the car before me, mustve left it i direct sunlight on the drivers side, as the paint has faded down to a horrible pinkish colour, and it just looks awful!
If there are any cheap ways to do it, don't bother, as i've tried most of them including buffing down with T-Cut etc and it aint worked!

Cheers
