05 Taco Impulse Red Fender flares turning orange

I own a 05 SR5 impulse red.It seems as though my fender flares (all 4 ) are fading to orange. Just getting a big runaround from dealership.Does any one have this problem or know of anyone.

Thanks

Mine are an ok dull Impulse Red not as vibrant as the rest of the truck but they have always been this way. 2006 bought new in March 2007 fwiw.

Like the others said pics please. Also, how often is it parked outside in the sun/weather?

That's why as great as it looks I would never buy a red vehicle. The amount of work it takes to keep red from fading sucks. Cherry like reds tend to orange out over time where darker reds go maroon.

A good clay job and finish restore should help a bit.. maybe even some rubbing compound? Whatever you do make sure you wax and protect after.

Mine do not look like that at all and lives all its life outside to the elements.
I am in Vermont and the sun only shines about 2 months a year tho.
Don't know why this happened.
Here is a bump to the top maybe somebody else knows
ps. I have not really detailed my truck either like in 3 yrs...

A bump is either a way to move a topic back to the top of the front page...or a cheap way for us to post whore, your choice http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/off...g-notsure.html

I have an 2008 Impulse Red DC too. Am waiting for the day that my flares turn orange only because they are made of plastic/fiberglass. Sun takes its toll on these things.

Yeah, it sucks!
