    Flame (pink) red Astra.

    Well after not much look today im after the best products to get my car back to red.

    This morning Ive tried poorboy's ssr, T-Cut and AG Super resin. The problem i have is that the paint doesn't seem to look any different at all.

    Ive now come to terms with the fact im gunna have to shell out for a machine polisher but i want to no what products and pads are the best to use to get the colour back and then whats best to protect it.

    So could some one please make me a list of everything i need for the perfect clean. .

    You can get some result from by hand method but to really get the paint back to how it should be your needing either a machine or someone who can do it for you.

    The bottom line is you need to remove the upper most surface of dead paint then really nourish it with pure polish which is full of polishing oils, bit like exfoliating then moisturing as I try and explain.

    Paints always wet even when its dry.
    The UV rays and all manner of polutants damage the upper most surface and dry it out so it is dead, this need to be fully removed to revive what healthy paint is underneath.
