Question about Cars & Trucks
Just painting my orginal bumper. I had a fender bender and ended up with some scrapes and tear. I've repaired the tear, repaired the deep scrapes and primed them, and put on 2 coats of colour coat. The repaired scrape sections still seem lighter that the rest of the bumper. Do I continue to add colour coats until it's all even....then put on a few clear coats?

hi from uk the fade on paintwork you describe is not uncommon on this colour and especially on red which tends to go pink ? may i suggest you try this remedy which was shown to me some years ago by a paint sprayer expert ? choose a small panel that has faded then use some metal liquid polish ie brasso or similar then pour a little on a clean cloth and rub on paintwork use straight motion not circular / left to right or up /dawn rub with light pressure over the panel then use warm soap water and sponge to wash the polish off then dry paintwork with clean cloth you will find the colour and shine has come up ? also feel the difference ? if you are satisfied ?? then with LOTS of patience? continue with proceedure panel by panel what you are doing is removing all old wax from paint and it is this that has dicoloured due to sun/heat then when car is finished? use a wash/wax detergent for final wash/rinse and leather off i recommend you do not try rushing this job or get fed up ? 1/2 way thro if you want car to look good please come back with update on how it goes ?
