Renewing faded paintwork
My Frankia paintwork used to get subjected to months of sun and wind born dust that have affected the finish on the nearside and back (in the summer these get the mediterranean sun). I have tried renovation polishes and creams and I cannot seem to rescue the shine anymore, also tiny "scratches" which get dirt in them means a good finish is impossible. So I decided to test respraying panels I can easily mask off, but what paint do I use with a relatively low power (2HP) compressor. The last time I did any car refinishing I used cellulose paint, but it appears that you can't buy this stuff anymore presumably because of its toxicity.
What types of paint can I use to spray and get a really good hard-wearing result (with patience and preparation)?
