Milano Red (EX) with Storms

Only one pic so far as I only got it yesterday and spent today polishing/sealing and waxing it!

They 18"?

If so, it looks like there's loads of space, so it will comfortably fit some 19"'s

Nice car btw, and what is that raised bit of spuare plastic on your front bumper? I dont have it...mines just flushed

That's the washer jets for the front lights.

I'm mostly using Poorboys stuff.

Yesterday involved a Meguire's Gold Class wash followed by Poorboys Polish, Sealant (EX-P) then a wax.

Also gave the wheels a coat of Poorboy's wheel sealant.

I did mine because I didn't get it treated. I didn't want to get it treated mostly due to the cost and the fact that when I washed it properly (clay bar etc) it'd rub it off anyway!

So wanted to get it sealed and waxed ready for winter asap.

Looking good, and all the same colour unlike some
Well done, I don't have the patience to polish it too much, a wash and dry down is usually enough for me.

That really has to be one of the nicest 'red' cars on the road. I would however like to lose the black plastic side trims and have them painted the same as the body colour.

Very nice though. I am still debating adding 18's to my order. Trade off against ride / tyre cost (not that much more really) and curbing incidents. There were three Civics at my local dealer that had Storms, all had curb damage -

Mine had curb damage on the front left when I received it. Spotted it during inspection and it's getting replaced. Glad I saw it really else I doubt they'd have done anything.

Apart from that, I just watch out for pot holes and beware rolling on and off curbs. I also don't really park that much as the girlfriend has a fiesta beast (tm) for town shopping and work has a huge open carpark which is basically a few acres of tarmac with no lines/curbs/nasty things.

I do expect to curb them all by Christmas though but oh well!

I'd have to admit, the milano red is one of the nicer colours for the civic!

Almost made me reconsider getting my NHB

..... Almost!!!

Fantastic work and good to see another Poorboys fan. If you wanted an even wetter finish try using Clearkote red moose machine glaze in between the polish and sealant. Once again good work and those wheels are looking amazing.
