I have been told that the red 146's fade and as they are lacqered they cannot be brought back. Is this true?
Is it the Alfa (blood) red or the proteo red?
Did they all do it or were the first or last any better.
All red cars fade worse than other colours due to the colour pigment reaction to UV light. I have a 96 Red Cloverleaf which is almost a dark magenta colour!
Tried all sorts of polishes and paint restorers..non will work because of the laquer.
I know the Phase 2 145/146's were sprayed in 1 coat acrylic which can be cleaned up with a paint restorer/polish like Meguiers or G3 and an orbital polisher. Most valeters can do you whole car for £50-£60.
