faded paintwork


My rosso red 155 bumpers have the clear coat peeling off them. What products can i use to tidy these up and freshen up the rest of the paintwork aswell. After 15 years, scratches, tree sap and kids have all taken their toll on the outside of the car.

Welcome to the Faded Rosso club !!

I had the same on both my bumpers, and what I did was sand them down, and resprayed them to get a good finish on them.

the only problem is that you will not find an exact match for faded Rosso red.
I managed to get something as close as I could in cellulose paint, but not many supply it.
