Wax for faded and low clear?

I have a 1993 Ford Ranger Splash that is the red orange color and I can tell the the other owners didn't take all that good of care of the paint. I have waxed it many times with some different things that I use on my Cougar. They work pretty well but it seems like when it rains or I wash it I loose like all my shine and what not again. Any sugestions until I can afford to get it painted?

I have used Zymol liquid wax, meguiars gold class liquid wax and meguires NXT paste wax.

what i bet would help is the stuff i sell try the oxygone, then follow it up with the ultra-ion, and i have seen that restore some nasty stuff straight from the junkyards.

It's also on9 sale for the month of august, and add RF to your last name, and I will throw in a microfiber towel if you get the 32oz bottle of ultra ion, you will use about 3oz's to do the truck (some use more some use less i use about 1.5ounce on my truck)

look into my old splash detailing pics.

use a buffer with a foam pad not wool. use some medium meguiars cut. then some fine then some glaze then NXT Liquid


end result will be this:
