Detailing my Civic

Today I detailed my Civic. The former owner neglected the Civic. And always washed in the car wash.

Here some result.

Before


After


Ps. Forgot to remove the tape on the front view pic... It's not striping...

Thanks!

I used a dual action machine 8mm eccentric.

First with a green pad with Monello Veloce (heavy polish)
Then with a red pad with Monello finalle.

Red pad, Poor Boys black hole
And two times Poor Boys nattys liquid Blue on a black pad.

I believe Monello is a Dutch product but it is really great.

Yes... It's always fun to wipe that stuff of your car.
Now I can see it is a metallic paint.

Congrats with your new ride. Just give it a little love and attention. And she will look good again.
