Summat to make the car paint shine?

Got my eye on a very tidy car, it's metallic green, but the 'shine' has gone from the paintwork. Is there
a product that can take the dullness away? I reckon it's been through a bad carwash myself. Shame really,
but a good bargaining point if you know what I mean?

The rest of the car is like new!

T-Cut metallic's pretty good stuff. I last used it on a Ford Scorpio that I
had a few years back on which the paint had bloomed after being un-garaged
for three years. Hard work, but really brought the colour bck and removed a
lot of the car-wash scratches as well. IIRC you can buy it shades to suit
the basic metallic colour - 'blue', 'green', 'red' etc

It's not that bad, just duller than I would wish for.

After I t-cut it, is there any kind of 'sealer' that will keep it that way?

There's some 3M pro bodyshop stuff that's very good 09374 fast Cut Compound
& 09639 Finishing Material. I had a red golf with very oxidised paintwork -
polishing the car in the street I could have sold a crate load of this
stuff.

yes - it's a fine cutter - more abrasive than t-cut. The other stuff puts a
rock hard sheen on it.

Click on link, anything I've ever used by Autoglym has done exactly what it
says on the bottle, usually bloody expensive, butit works so I figure it's
worth the money.

thirded. Autoglym is about the best of the bunch. If ouy've got the time,
patience and energy they do a wax polish in a tin, like furniture polish -
reckoned to need mucho elbow-grease but produces a shine like nowt else.

Re: Summat to make the car paint shine?

they also do a cutting polish which is good, if it's followed by their
silicone glaze sealer thingy it looks absolutely amazing and lasts for ages!
