Fading red paint

Hi,

I have a old red corolla, the area which is exposed to the sun has faded into pink, while the sides are a deep red.

I know that a complete respray maybe needed, but is there not some polish out there which will help

    Common problem, it seems all red cars are prone to the fading effect on the paint work. It has something to do with the ultra violet spectrum.

    My advice: Polish and wax

I would like to replace the headlights in my pt cruiser because of the old yellow fadeing. What do i look to buy headlights or headlight covers only, i am confused on what to order... please help


the old yellow fading and kinda fogging look is from the sun if you want to try a quick fix try using a polish like mother's power ball i found that if you buy a polish u can restore them to almost new. if you dont want to try that ten what you need when you look for knew one's is the year make and model most body shops will be able to order them and same goes with the parts store's in your area.

Small dents and paint is fading worth dolling up?


if any vehicle has been treated rough and not cared for,what about servicing/maintenance,has that been neglected as well.
NEVER buy anything that has not been loved,you will pay dearly for it in the long run.

I replaced my water pump at 90,000 miles. Do I have to replace it again at 180,000? I have 182,000 on my 1998 Honda Accord EX, 5 Speed. Also how long do the clutches last? Also the paint does start fading...


firstly replacement waterpump is not time sensitive,change it when it goes.
the clutch can last from 7seconds,foot rest, to 150k if driven long distances,sometimes longer,
the paint is water based and should be waxed every year to stop it fading too badly,(good maintenance always pays off.....)red/blue are the worse.

2004 blue endeavor paint problem


This is a common problem with base coat clear coat paint, you may want to take it to the dealer and see if they will do something about it. GM and ford both had a problem with the clear coat fading and actually peeling away. If enough people complain they may do something about it. It has to basically be sanded down and repainted and clear coated again. The only sure way to keep this from happening is using a car cover when it’s in the sun. And blue is one of the worst I have seen for failure. But again it’s worth a shot to go to the dealer and see if there is a recall on the paint. The squeaky wheel gets greased

Fading paint color on different areas of my 2000 VW Beetle Turbo


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 ?

My Paint Is Fading Please Help!!


It Depends how bad the fading is. A good re store polish from mothers or 3m will bring it bk but it wont last. The sun is breaking the pigement and resins so in the end it will need a paint job.

I need to know the color code of my 2000 ford f150 radio


Look in the driver's side door jamb. There should me a sticker with the details of your truck.

At the bottom you'll see EXT PNT:

Mine says EXT PNT: SU

I believe SU is the the color code. You can probably order the paint from the dealer, or any good paint supplier can get you the equivalent.

Remember that paint can fade and change color over time, so if you're not a pro painter, blending the bright, new color will be very hard to do; you might as well just paint the entire panel or the whole truck if you're not already going to.
