I’m not a professional detailer, but when I got this 1994 Acura Legend Coupe 6 speed, I thought it might be time to try my hand and repairing oxidized paint. It didn’t require a big investment in tools and materials, but it did take quite a bit of time. In fact, I spent 2 days on the car and I could probably spend 2 more.
I hope this information will be helpful to you if your vehicle also has issues with the paint.
One final note. The paint on these cars was actually pink. The clear coat had the final pigment that created what Honda calls, Milano Red. Therefore I didn’t want to go too far during the repair process for fear that I might change the color. In fact, there were a couple of areas where this started to happen.
I think in order to truly restore this cars finish, it would be best to respray the roof, hood, and deck lid after removing all the dents. This car doesn’t have any rust so perhaps one day I’ll make that investment. Till then, I’m going to be happy with my shiny red car that I call Scarlett Johansson.
