    Default Flame Red Corsa VXR Paint damage...

    Hi folks. New to this so be nice and apologise if this has been asked to death or is elsewhere...

    I've got a 2011 Flame Red VXR... It's covered with swirl marks from years of polishing by the previous owners and me too!

    I've tried clay, machine polishing, specialist colour matching stuff. Has improved the paint, but still showing swirls.

    Just wondered if anyone on here has got any tips on how I can repair this? Any specific polish that people use etc... Ultimately I would like to get it blown over at a spray shop, as some stone chipping to the bonnet and front bumper that needs doing, but just shelled out for the gearbox, a full service, two new tyres and an MOT, so not got the money!

    Would appreciate any advice... Thanks

    You know any good ones either in the Midlands or South East / Essex way?? I've got chips away coming to refurb one of the alloys that my old man herbed for me when I was away on holiday and the old man was 'looking after' the car! On a positive note, he has agreed to pay for it though!!
