Anything I can do about it? Do our cars have a clear coat that I'd have to go through to get to new paint? what can I do? I've got a buffer that I haven't ever used, what are my options short of a repaint?

Have you tried anything so far? Polishing with the buffer and Meguiar's #9 Swirl Remover 2.0 should bring back the shine. Then follow up with a gloss enhancer or a glaze (3M Imperial Hand Glaze). Then throw on a coat or two of wax and she should look good as new (if not better!)

Red is one of those colors that looks awesome when its taken care of, but when it gets older and fades is heartbrakin. I think the next car i go with is gonna be white or silver (dependin upon the silver)

This is waht i would do except i would stick wiht Maguire's. Use Maguire's number 5 or 7 (whiweveer is the Glaze) and then the Yellow wax. I forget what color that is off hand.

I really wish i would have taken a pic of my CRX before I did it the other day. it was so dull and faded and gray. Now it is a beautiful glossy white. You would never even tell that the car is 13 years old. I even skipped the polish and just did cleaner and wax and it looks awesome.

I've tried just using some #7 cleaner wax. It seemed to help a little, but it could just be in my head.

Honestly it looks like the red on the roof and trunklid has a bit of a chalky appearance. It's not that it's dull, it's shiny and all. just like it has a white haze in the clear, it just lightens some spots.

I'll try to find some swirl remover tonight.
