Whats the best technique/product to re-generate/ freshen up & make the Trophy look red again instead of looking faded pink colour? Understand T Cut is not a good idea, machine polish? Mopping? or Turtlewax red colour restorer? Cheers
Ok chaps thanks, probably not looking to get plastics re-sprayed as not that bad, only door handles really. Ive got an Autoglym valeting case so know Ive got the polish just need to check for other products. Would you recommend the de-contaminating products instead of a clay bar & getting it mopped? Cheers
Wow! Does look absolutely stunning after that, see Trophy decals on the rear skirt have been removed. Mine would definitely benefit from
this kind of treatment. Unfortunately need to invest in some new products and havent got a spare 25 hours at the moment however looks like a plan for when the better weather arrives.
The 'Trophy' decals are still available from Renault aren't they? Around £30 per side I'm sure? One of mine has started to fade a bit so I may get another set ordered just in case Renault pull the plug on these, too.
To the OP - sadly if your Trophy has become a faded pink colour (who's hasn't?!), the only real way to get it looking red again is to have the affected areas resprayed. Capsicum Red is a clear over base paint (a red base coat with a clear top coat / lacquer). So when you polish your car, you are polishing the top coat and it won't affect the base coat at all. It's a good idea to make sure your car is protected with a good durable wax that offers UV protection.
how easy is it to remove the old stickers.
I have had a look at mine (drivers side only is terrible). I was thinking of trying to get them off with a chisel but that will be pretty hard without damaging other paint work.
Anyone with experience of this.
