    Default Milano Red (pink) owners

    Just bought a EP3 Milano red or should I say its a bit pink, so what have you used to get it back to red, can you recommend a cutting compound to use or a body shop in Hampshire that'll fix it

    many thanks

    Hi, taken some advice and I'm told the EP3 was lacquered on top of the base coat so its the red under the lacquer that has faded so I recon you're right it'll need a respay. :-(

    Once it has faded there is nothing you can do as the paint fades under the lacquer. A respray is your only option i'm afraid. Sucks as Milano Red is my favourite colour, shame they all fade.

    Depends on where you go and into how much depth (blow over right upto a full respray including the bay and door shuts).
    From K Series to H Series to a Saxo to a Hybrid
