Now i know this may be in the wrong section but im sure loads of evo members have owned red escorts.

 

Im just trying to figure owt is it a nightmare to handle ie seen a very nice 3dr gti in red with slight fade on spolier,the rest of the body perfect red but im wondering whats people views on maintaining the red so it dont go pink etc?

 

all views welcome :cheers:

Mine started off pink in various places but with work became lovely deep red. Rubbing compound then polish & wax to protect the finish. See the detailing section for my advice there. :thumb:

im sure caz' was quite faded, i used to have a radiant red escort and tbh never really kept on top of it, but it wernt bad ;)

 

i think red is a lovely colour, and shouldnt really take much more effort than a normal car if you maintain your cars paintwork regularly anyway ;)

Reds will always have a tendancy to go slightly pink, the best way to keep it red for longer is maintaining the paintwork, protecting it with the right sorts of products.

 

I brought my XR back from pink and have kept on top of it by keeping it clean and topping up the wax with a protection quick detailer.

 

To get rid of the pink, I used an abrasive polish, a light/medium cut polish called Menzerna PO85. Be very careful with products like G3/Tcut on machines, it is really quite easy to make a hash of it because they are very high cut polishes.
