    Question Compound?

    A friend of mine owns a red sxi corsa, and it's really badly faded. But his friend's dad showed him some compound which bought the colour right back to a vivid red. He said it was called "Mur" and that it was only available in america. So i was wondering if anyone's ever used the stuff, and where i can get it from? Hoping it will tidy up my swirl marks, and the overspray on my bonnet.

    the polish is actually called" mer",and is available from most good accessory shops,and on e/bay.not sensationally better than
    anyother products of this nature i.e , t cut or similar cutting polishes.depends on how bad your paintwork has faded.you can only try it.

    there is something called "rubbing compound" too which is even more abrasive if you need. halfords have some.
