    I have a 91 mr2 in crimson red. It does not have a clear coat. The problem is that the only time it looks red is the day after i wax it, then it turns more pinkish over time. It really makes me mad when i spend so much time waxing it and it looks girly in less than a few days. What should i do and what products should i use to best bring out the red and keep it there?

    thanks to anyone who reads or posts.:bigthumb:

    Polish is what actaully brings out a shine, the wax just seals the paint. I'd suggest Meguiar's #7 Mirror Glaze. See the product list for more recommendations.

    Your are probably going to at least need to use a swirl remover and possibly a paint cleaner-a lot are listed in the product list. You need to remove the surface oxidation and get down to the good paint before waxing. Once you have done that, then you absolutely should wax every 2 months without fail, using a light polish prior to waxing each time.
