That's the part where you hope it all comes back ok.

You'll be pleased to see it all properly Red again, rather than Fifty Shades of paint fade, synonymous with the Rosso at a certain age.

Will be good to see the progress :thumbs:

I was watching one of these "Car Chasers " shows on ITV 4 and they did a full re spray on 3 days !

Out of interest how much is the average touch up ....

Awesome! im gonna say this now so you wont have to deal with the scratches in the future but get a glass/ceramic coating, you have to let the paint air for 30 days before adding the coating after a respray but after that get that **** coated. you can do it your self if you want, its not hard at all.

a) DuPont's SupraShield™, PPG's Optech™ and CeramiClear™ Clear Coat are all binary clear coat compositions using ceramic particles designed to offer long-term scratch resistance, gloss and durability and is applied as a final coating over a traditional clear coat, CeramiClear™ has an approximate thickness of 7.5 µ (0.5 Mil) this top layer also contains the paint systems UV protection

b) Opti-Coat ™ , C.Quartz, G|Techniq, Nanolex and etc. Surfaces sealed with Nanotechnology sealants repel water, oil and dirt, have antistatic characteristics and protect against chemical and biological damage, they also offer scratch resistance. Water, oil and dirt can be removed easily, but if the car is very dirty it can be cleaned with a high pressure hose and a microfiber cloth.

when cured most of these coatings are harder then clear coat, some are close to smartphone protection glass (9H)
