Cool Really Needed a Clean

My Type R has been neglected for some time now so it got a well deserved clean this afternoon while the weather was good.

Only had enough time for:

- Alloys cleaned using Chemical Guys Diablo Wheel Cleaner
- 2 bucket wash with Zaino Show Car Wash
- Dry with waffle weave towel
- Windows cleaned with Meguiars Glass Cleaner
- Tyres dressed with AG Foam Tyre Dressing
- One coat of Dodo Juice Tropical Red Mist detailer

The Red Mist will give is some protection as it has some wax in it. It will need a good detail this spring as there is a lot of surface swirls and tar build up on the bottoms of the doors etc... I've got some Gtechniq P1 on the way to help battle the swirls. (keep eyes peeled for more pics in a few weeks)

On with these piccys:

Cheers mate. It's not as good as I'd like, the paintwork on all Honda's is rubbish.

Looks good mate.
Love mine when is all cleaned up, just doesn't last on the roads just now though.
I agree that the paint work is terrible on the civics.

I'm afraid that exhaust tips doesn't look clean... They need polishing to.

You are correct mate

Problem I have with them is that they are not chrome they are a brushed silver colour that will not shine up

Nothing I have shines them up very well.

I would add some sealer and wax..Red Mist Tropical is only a QD and not designed to be an LSP
Good luck

I usually would Robbo, but didn't have the time so Red Mist was the next best thing
