Just one question. For the faded red/pink/orange paint issue, can it be done to plastic too?
I presume, lots of water and wet and dry, followed by lots of water and G3, followed by lots of polishing and waxing?
Thanks. Great thread!

I've not used the Farecla stuff myself (I know a friendly neighbourhood 3M guy!) but by all accounts it seems to do the job very well indeed. I've said it before, but I'll say it again. Stay well clear of T-cut for a decent job as it contains things that aren't any good for your paint!

A grinder spins at 10,000 rpm and will rip through the paint
Clicky for polisher
G3 paste, you should not need nore than 400g tube £6.69 to do a mini IF YOU ARE FLATTING IT DOWN FIRST other wise as mentioned above a couple tubes
Get it here
Clicky for farecla G3

Will the G3 paste smooth it down a little and bring up the shine again, or would you recommend a fine wet and dry first.

The one of the rear quarter looks as if the paint is dry, I am guessing this was done using a spray can ?
It looks as if the paint is dry because you have not applied enough with each pass.
You could try G3 straight off but it will take time
To speed up the process you can use wet and dry paper P1200 or P1500
and soapy water, keep wetting the panel as you rub it, you will not need too much pressure, when it feel smooth to the touch then G3 it, again keep the panel wet at all times when using the buffer.
If you do not have a buffer then, use P1500 and get it as smooth as possible then G3 by hand..
hope this helps.
