paint and car starting up

i have two quick questions

first one is that i have the paint on the car starting to faded how can i fix that i have been told that cut and polish would do. I also have stone chips and round the front and back windscreen i been told i could get a very fine paint brush and paint it that way and buff it


second one is when the starts up it takes a few seconds to turn over on gas is this normal

Take it to a body shop for a good buff and shine and the paint will come up as good as. As for the chips, if the paints metalic you need to get the entire pannel re-spraied but if it isn't a touch up can will doo the job, just make sure you do thin coats of paint.

to be honest, spraying anything out of a can will look like shit (i have learnt this the hard way)...there is not enough pressure to vaporise the paint properly and evenly so on almost all occaisions it will look uneven, blotchy etc...take it too a panel beater or get a compressor and do it properly..but its only a small area, (like one mm square!) touch up paint with a fine brush will be barely noticeable.

About the starting on gas, if it doesn't get worse, don't worry about it. Mine starts 2nd go, each time, every time, so I couldn't care less.

There is a solenoid that clicks when you turn the ignition on, what happens if you turn the ignition on, wait a little and then start?
