Difference between Paint Renovator and Colour Restorer

Hi,

Been on Halfords this morning and seen the G3 Colour Restorer available. Description seems similar to the Paint Renovator, so I was wondering what the differences are?

Got some Halfords vouchers which I thought I could get some G3 products with, and was looking something to give some extra shine to paintwork.

Had planned on using Clay mitt, Scratch remover, Paint Renovator/Colour Restorer then finish off with Super Gloss Paste Wax.

Any guidance gratefully received.

not sure about the paint renovator but the colour restorer is good kit, just tested it on Mrs P's Yaris and it really cleaned the paint up and brought out the shine.
Would recommend it...

Hi robwdavies

G3 Pro Colour Restorer is a new formulation and an important addition to the G3 Pro product range. The formula was developed specifically for restoring gloss levels and colour to car paintwork.

Colour Restorer incorporates the Engineering Abrasive Technology that G3 Pro is famous for, which means it will also remove holograms, swirls, micro-scratches and blemishes. However, its other constituents and unique formulation mean that, in tests under strict laboratory conditions, it is able to achieve three times the gloss of its closest competitors.

We hope that helps with your purchasing decisions.

HI robwdavies

G3 Paint Renovator was specifically formulated to remove swirls, holograms and blemishes from car paintwork. G3 Colour Restorer was specifically formulated to restore gloss levels and colour to car paintwork. They are both unique formulations and a blend of different constituents including the Engineered Diminishing Abrasive technology (EDa) that G3 Pro is famous for. Each product contains a different blend of EDa (as well as other constituents) hence they have different applications.

We hope that helps.

I found the paint renovator left a thick oily residue which is difficult to remove. Is it advised to shampoo the car again after using it? I have been using very small dots of product on a waffle pad and still have this problem.

Hi vw754, the G3 Pro SuperGloss Paste Wax has a higher content of wax which provides a better gloss and longer protection than the G3 Pro Resin SuperWax.

Kind regards,
