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?
