My "new " Civic

Been on the site for a few weeks now, apologies I am only getting round to show my car off.
I have to take my hat off to the amazing detailing jobs some of the people on here do. This is my effort today with a pressure washer, hand wash, hand polish and hand wax - 4 hours and it still looks in need of some real detailing. That said this is the only car I have ever had the inclination to keep looking good.
Anyway, some pics - looks like I am as bad at taking photos as I am at keeping my car looking good.

Zymol natural car wash
G3 scratch remover on some of the worst scratches
Turtle wax extreme nano tech polish
Turtle wax ice liquid wash
Wonder wheels for the alloys
About a dozen microfibres
2 buckets
Pressure washer

In the old days it was literally bucket of soapy water and a hose, no polish , no wax - the shame
