It's faded red and that's how it's staying.

I have not once said to change it or to mop / DA it. Simply stated my views on what I think defines Patina vs dull flat faded red. This forum seems overly moderated however as last post seems to have disappeared?

Could you please confirm what was in your ''lost'' post as I cannot find any deleted posts from this thread within the moderator logs.

Or do you mean this one which is 3 posts above this one but on page 3 rather than page 4?

lets be honest here, it's faded red paint! dress it up with buzz words as much as one wants, its flat red gone wrong. Its not "Patina" in the sense I would define it.

Yes I too googled the definition of Patina before posting, and yes technically true, but in terms of car speak, its 100% not patina, its faded red.

On my way to Rye this morning and the scruffy Saab suddenly started misfiring badly followed by plumes of white smoke from the exhaust and promptly dumped its coolant all over the A259. Now on a recovery lorry on it's way to my Saab specialist for head gasket replacement. My first fail to proceed for a very long time.

That's bad luck...
Hope it gets sorted soon.

At least it was nice weather and I managed to limp it to a leafy shady lane whilst waiting for the recovery lorry. :D

It's unusual for a head gasket to go as dramatically as that. I've had two or three go over the years and they all started with a small leak and kept going for weeks or months before I got 'round to doing it.

It done a Swedish Day trip of 275 miles the other weekend and it used a very small amount. It could be corrosion related as it stood on the drive of the previous owner for about 3 years before I got it,although I have done 9000 miles since then. A new head gasket and head skim may go towards curing my oxygen sensor problem as apparently they don't like sniffing anti freeze!
