    Another quick question is there a way of restoring the original colour as I am a bit worried the fresh paint will stand out like a sore thumb against faded origal paint?

    Clay bar can help bring back the colour and a good colour restoring Polish perhaps?

    Have a look through the Detailing & Cleaning section @Rastaj plenty of tips on how to get the paintwork looking in tip top condition.
