Lower panels W124

Post by WarrenM » Mon 26 Apr, 2010 6:14 pm

Our burgundy W124 lower sections "bumper" areas have lost some colour-any suggestions to bring them back?

Thanks

As in they are a bit flat in the sheen, or the colour has gone off?

Both flat and in some parts colour gone off-side panels are fine

Use a colour restoring polish, not a cutting compound.
