    White Lancer. Paint Faded. Need help!

    I bought a wrecked Lancer. The body shop painted the bumper and fender using the paint code off the car. It does not match. Is there ANYTHING I can do to make my old paint not look so yellow-ish? Can you tell me the order of products to use? Thank you for your help!!

    Looks like it is time for a polish to clean up the paint and restore the original look to the paint. A cleaner wax like white wax is another option.

    Also clay if needed prior to polishing or using a cleaner wax.

    Generally it would be something like:

    1. Wash - Maybe need a spray of a tar remover first on the lower areas..
    2. Clay
    3. Clean/Polish - For how big the difference is, applying something like Ult. Compound might not be a bad idea... and when used by hand, it isnt going to be super strong.
    4. Wax - Ult. Wax, or other favorite.

    Though as Guz mentioned, cleaner/waxes are also common. They may be a bit milder, but you could at least see what kind of improvement is possible...

    1. Wash
    2. Clay
    3. White Wax (this is the stronger of the cleaner/waxes from Meguiars)
