Faded Paint and a lame request
This is a really lame request but I cannot afford to get two cars painted right now. My wife has a silver and I have a black Altima. My paint is really starting to look bad on the hood and roof. Her's is showing primer through the silver on the hood and roof.
Side note: What is it with Altima and their paint?
Note that I wash and wax these cars as much as anyone who really wants them to last. I have never used any kind of compound. I mostly used Synthetic Ice until I started using the Black Kit by Turtle Wax.
I saw an older silver Altima where they had some sort of wax that was covering the faded spots. It would only last a couple of months, but it looked pretty good for a while. The guy could not remember the name or where he found it. It reminded me of someone wearing make-up.
I have tried the Turtle Wax colored stuff and even tried one of those Black kits for my car.
Bottom line: Has anyone seen or heard of this "make-up" for cars? With other repairs and new grandkids, I just can't shell out a couple grand for repaints until summer.
