    No question about it, the Werkstat Carnauba Kit, because even working by hand, it does this to solid red paint...









    No other products we offer come close on solid red in terms of jetting the colour and making it pop. Full details here...

    PB site says :

    "Werkstat carnauba finish on your car, and works best on solid mid-tone colours like reds, yellows and blues."

    "Werkstat acrylic finish on your car, and works best on lighter colours and metallic/pearlescent finishes."

    probs should of gone for the carnauba one with your car being red, acrylic one for the silver

    The Carnauba would have been better for red yes, however it isnt exactly going to look bad with the Acrylic on it either. I used the Acrylic kit on my flash Red LCR a couple of years ago and it still looked awesome!
