nothing for that, its far too damaged. the only thing you can do is get it repainted.

Still nothing. I have a buddy with the same problem (with red too), he;s tried just about everything. Only thing he managed to do was make it worse. I've also had this problem on my last cb7. Yea, nothing will really help ya, other than fresh paint.

Sorry bro.

nah that still won't do anything. there's like no clear left. if there was still some clear I'd say clay bar or rubbing compound

I have the same problem. I heard from pp that vaseline makes it always look wet so it doesnt stand out as much. I tried it and it worked pretty good. it makes it blend in alot with your paint.
