After 23yrs, the paint on my old F100 has faded from a deep blue ( I believe it was an acrylic enamel laid down in '82) to a chalky-white baby blue. You can easily make fingerprints on it. I'd like to remove the chalk and get back to the deep blue underneath. Anyone ever had success in doing something like that?
What is the best/easiest/low cost way to remove the chalk -- wet wash it with a green brilo pad?
Wet sand it with 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper?
Open to any & all suggestions - Thanks in Advance!

I've had good luck with rubbing compond an electric buffer like this one
and plenty of clean terry towels. It does take some time,and lots of buffing. I usally apply 2-3 applications of the rubbing compond. Once the paint feels smooth, and slick again. Then you use a good paste wax.
When my brother and I buffed his XXL buick. We burned out to buffers. But you should have seent he before and after results.
