Hey guys, new here.
I Just bought 2004 Crown Victoria that has been parked outside for about a year without moving. (!).
Anyways, the paint on the side that gets more sun is looking pretty dull. Not quite sure what the exact problem is, but it looks to be possibly a bit sun faded, or hazed? It has lost some shine compared to the other side and has this almost white colored haze on top of the paint. Maybe you guys can help me identify it by the description or pictures below.
I gave it a quick wash yesterday and it did bring back some shine, but I wanted to go a bit further by hand.
I'm on a bit of a budget here so I was thinking of just going with the following products in order:
Deep Crystal System Paint Cleaner
Gold Class Car Wash or Mequiars Ultimate Wash and Wax (Not sure which is better)
Gold Glass Liquid Wax
If that doesn't bring back a bit more shine, I will be taking it to a professional detailer in a few weeks, but for the time being, I just want to bring a little bit of shine back to the paint for the summer, doesn't have to be perfect and i'm basically just looking for temporary fix as I plan on repainting the vehicle next year.
Thanks guys! Any help/input is appreciated.
