It would appear some 15 years after I last ordered a new car in solid red, it is now in fashion. The trade has various names for solid red, including postbox, fire engine and dog cock. These days there’s an expectation that red won’t fade now that there is a clear coat over the top. Previous cheaper shades of red faded, I’m led to believe, because of a lack of lead in the paint. Can anyone confirm this?
