Re: broom yellow paintwork.

Broom yellow is very hard to match paint if you're thinking of re-spraying it. I'd reccomend trying Autoglym Paint Renovator or T-cutting and some good quality polish if you haven't already

Re: broom yellow paintwork.

If paint only faided as said above.

I would use AutoGym SRP it is a cleanser as well as a polish and should bring out the paint.

Or try a compound like G3 then a polish/wax on top.

Re: broom yellow paintwork.

if youre going to use G3 i would say use a mop and bucket and also it is hard work so a machine polisher is a must and it is not a childrens play toy

just rem to try the lighter and less harmful methods first lol

Re: broom yellow paintwork.

DONT use a burnisher on plastic bumper ect,try t-cut by hand but you will never get true colour [as plastics different from metal painting]..or t-cut and use that nasty colour magic[NNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOO],

Use cutting compound like G3 by 3m as la rossa mentioned, it really brings the colour back on red and white cars so I dont see why not on yellow!

I have a broom yellow punto too and it's annoying to get the colour to match exactly, if you were to spray something, then you'd have to leave it a few weeks to settle in then use some rubbing compound to even the colour out a bit!
