My wife's 95 Honda Passport looks bad. The roof and hood are fading..........quickly. The clear coat started turning chalky last year, and it has spread rapidly. A new paint job is $2500-5000. The car isn't worth that much. Other than getting a crappy Maco $500 paint job, are any of the products that claim to renew faded paint worth the price? I've seen numerous products that claim to restore shine to old paint. Basically the black paint is still there, but the clear coat makes it look like it's grey. When you wet it, it turns black momentarily. Someone mentioned to me that I might be able to have it buffed and polished, then keep a coat of wax on it quite regularly. This would help it "look" better. I'm loking for a consensus of ideas from people with experience. I'd like to avoid a paintjob on this older vehicle if at all possible. But the wife likes the car, and wants to drive it till the wheels fall off........or the body rusts off, whichever comes first.
