    I bought my M95 used and it was faded bad. The wheels l was able to take off and use a buffer on and they look nice again. The fiberglass hood and fenders I buffed out and they look better, but not as good as the wheels. I did put a coat of wax on the hood to help protect it.

    I do the same thing...maybe even more often. I am what they call "anal" about the way my equipment looks and after forking out as much money as I did on my L3200 w/ BH 77 backhoe, I figured I'm gonna keep her lookin like new as much as possible and as long as possible. I think the tractor appreciates it too! ha ha

    I think its safe to say that the kubota Orange seems to have a hypnotic type quality to it for most of us Kubota owners.....They just look so much better than any other tractor out there when they are all shined up and looking good!

    Red pigments are the weakest against UV fade. Single stage paints the weakest again. Thats two strikes.

    Ryan08 is right on the money.

    If by faded you mean dull, clear will help. If you mean discolored, it's already too late. It will not look any different than if you wet it.

    True, automotive clear will add UV protection, but if your going to go as far as prepping it, and spraying on some urethane clear, it makes a lot more sense to put down a coat or two of the same quality base color first.

    Some single stage colors discolor from sanding them to prepare for refinish. Reds tend to do this more than others. I would be very careful to make sure you don't experience this, if you choose not to spray any color first.

    I have seen some new Kubotas fade but don't fully nderstand it. Yet I have seen some sit on dealer lots in the hot sun all summer and yet zero fade. Something else must be going on that we are not aware of.
    The kubota paint sold by dealers is a very high quality acrylic enamel and I have used plenty. I can't recall an item I painted that has faded.

    May I be the kind of person my dogs think I am,

    I hope you mean "very high quality" as far as acrylic enamel goes?

    Acrylic enamel is after all, only one notch up from the bottom shelf.
