Shiny?? Mugen 200

Well I've had my M200 for a few weeks now and I finally got round to giving her a good clean, polish and wax .... it was over two days (rain kept stopping play) and when I took the pics the light was going but it looks a bit shinier in good daylight. Having come from two black civs I feel I'm struggling to get that deep gloss look but it ain't bad for the first proper polish and wax.

So what do you think?

When I get some good light I'll upload some more

What wax did you use GM68?

This is mine with Meguiars Showcar Glaze topped with Bilt Hamber Finis Wax and a little sunshine earlier today.

That's looking good DR. I used AGSRP then Harly wax Harly Wax, Pure Brazilian Carnauba- Pauls Products Distr of Harley Wax only need the slightest amount and it goes on and buffs off very easy.

A friend of mine swears by Harly wax. I've yet to try it but his car always looks great.

What did you use on your wheels? Mine are coming off tomorrow to be sealed.

Both looking lovely and shiny. I think the white paint looks fantastic after a good wash and wax. All that it lacks is the depth that you get from metallic paints

That does look really glossy, fair play! i guess white is a lot like silver, i worked hard to get a glossy finnish to my silver EP..and found it hard compared to what i'd had before.

It looks a million times better than black though!

lol, would have to disagree with you Lee, 4 of my last 6 Honda's were black .... I had those beauties looking like glass albeit swirly glass, but glass-like non the less and I got a deep gloss look on my old vivid blue EP2 so this non metallic white is a bit of a culture shock for me

There you go Paul.
