    Default colour restoring

    hi guys and gals,
    this guy i work with has just purchased a red vec 53 plate, think its flame red. there are parts of it like the bonnet roof boot certain plastic trim bits that have faded and gone pink. however we spent luchtime at work polishing and buffing with turtle wax colour restorer. some of it looks better, alot is still pink. but he aint happy and wants something better to bring back the red colour, i told him about these polishers i keep hearing about on here, and certain stuff you guys use..

    we just need to know what will work best, what polisher and what restoring product?????

    thanks for your help guys
    paul
