Could it be clear-coated now to preserve the paint?
As it is, no. But he did say he knows a guy that could possibly take a bit off and then respray and lacquer it. As the car is otherwise straight (it has two chips and no scratches / dings at all) there would be very little prep so would save a few bob on a full respray.
It's the only way it'd be perfect again I feel. I'm just going to keep it clean and always waxed for now.
Here's a link to his website if anyone is interested.www.detailedessex.com
He's a good lad. Real car nut (we spoke for over an hour before he even started!) and really does care about the cars like they're his own
