Hi, this topic has probably been discussed and I've found a few threads, but they seemed to have differing opinions...I have a fiero and the paint on the roof, hood, and decklid is faded (sun-bleached, oxidized, whatever you wanna call it?) Basically it has no shine, and I've noticed when I was it it absorbs some of the water. Anyway, I know the only way to really fix this is to have it repainted, but I can't afford that right now, and I'm wondering if anyone has tried using cutting compound then polish to seal it a bit and bring back some of the shine? Thanks in advance for the info guys and gals!

You can try it, but most of the damage is probably going to stay, because it is under the clear coat.....

On one of my Fiero parts cars, the clear coat is coming off in sheets. It's like it has a bad case of sunburn, and the outer layer of skin is peeling. What a mess!

3M makes about the best cutting compound on the market. You can find it at NAPA auto parts... pricey but worth it.
