Talking A'Yo From Broadstairs, Kent - 3rd Type-r :)

Hi everyone

Just had the pleasure of buying my 3rd Type-R and this time gone for the FN2. Have to say i love this car so much my kids even being neglected! haha...It's just standard 2008 Black GT but plan on doing some mods. Was a choice between this and my friends milano with GP, SAT NAV... etc but have seen so many milanos flying about i went for the black.

First thing to do is Give it a good cleanup as i've always just taken them to the local car wash but after having a good readup i feel a bit ashamed that i've not taken proper care of these beauts!

I have spent a few quid on random stuff but planning on buying some more stuff this week. Never done a proper wash before so any help on what to buy next would be great! I'm also planning on painting the calipers red and have got some paint from halfords but F Knows if it's the right stuff

I have G3 Scratch remover, G3 SuperGloss Paste Was, Microfibre Glove and clothe, Some G3 Waffle pads for wax and scratch remover, Halfords red high temp engine enamel paint(for calipers) and some mantis scratch remover that's turned out to be absolute crap!

That losts cost me 80 already but don't mind as i'm loving this car too much to care about money

Spent the past 2 days installing my Vibe CBR12 Sub with the OEM stereo and that was absolute hell to do but it sounds great even with the standard front speakers...Shocking!

Will upload some pics of the car before and after soon. Also, Have front type-r badge and side stickers on the way from Honda

Welcome mate You need clay to clean the paint proper after you wash it and get ready to fix/polish the paint.

But take a look in the cleaning section for more info

Cheers everyone, I will try find some clay today but never heard of it tbh! Madcaddies, Where do you get yours from mate? I've had a look on the cleaning threads and i'm a bit overwhelmed by it all. Bought some
Meguiars Gold Class Car Shampoo and Conditioner that looked to be the best in halfords.

Gonna try and just do a good clean, clay and wax!

Will take it out for a spin and do some good pics today as the suns finally come out. Non stop raining since the day i got the car!
