With the rig turning 10 this year I’ve tried to give it an extremely thorough detailing. I noticed on the front of the hood there is a lot of fading, cracking, and some discoloration. Is there any way to fix this? Or has my woeful neglect permanently damaged the front end?
many times it can be fixed, but really depends on what you want to spend Vs. what you expect the end result to look like. Simply buffing it can remove more paint potentially making matters worse down the road.
I've used Hyer Quality Detail for a few things, the owner (Hyer) was introduced to me by another friend that owns a paint / body shop. The level of quality at this place is pretty damn high and Hyer is great at presenting a few options for different budgets. www.higherqualitydetail.com/
it's not so much the coatings as it is the paint correction process, still cheaper than new paint (of any good quality).
