Re: Help, faded paint

really hard top do something about as the red colour has faded under the clearcote, so any traditional solution like T-cut has no effect at all.

Try some of that red colour magic polish, but the effect will only last a few weeks, but Alfa red is a PITA once faded, only thing that sorts it is a re-spray.

A tip from the "trade"....try WD40 on the faded paintwork. It works a treat but don't get any on the glass.
