Hi!

I finally got my new civic! :cool::cool::cool: I absolutely love it. I probably won't change anything to the engine since it has a 3 year warranty. :( I will change the rims and the suspension at the start of the spring... Yesterday I found out that it already has a nasty rock chip on the hood....driven under 500km:(:(:(:(

Some pics after detailing (will get better ones tomorrow!)












more pics soon...

Hey. It is now all waxed and everything. I will probably clean it every week :) No the garage isn't mine (It's my friend's who detailed it yesterday). I would give everything to have a garage,...but sadly i don't. :( What do you think I should do to the rock chip? Paint it with an aerosol? With a brush?

What do you guys think about putting on 18'' tomason tn1 black painted with a polished edge? I personaly think they are being over-used, and they get quite expensive if you also want to paint them...

Nice1, your right about having a garage I have a parking space instead of a garage. Glad to hear it is going well. I hope I can offer some help with the stone chip. I tend to use the honda touch up brush if it is not a massive chip. Then after a while I give it another coat. sometimes depending on how big the chip is I will just smooth it a touch with a tiny bit of sand paper slight moist so not to cut into it before apply the first coat. But if it is just a simple chip then clean the area and apply the touch up. Hope this helps:) in some way I am not an expert at touching up before anyone comes on and says I know nothing;).

...and Yes the 18's sound sweet what about Team Dynamics? but everyones got different tastes!

Hope you get it sorted ok.:popcorn:
