Pic of my body panel...

Well, tonight I began to rub out my car and get all of the swirls that were left in it. Here is one panel. I know the pic sucks but oh well.

Thanks! I wish the camera took a better pic though.

Here is a shot of last years polish job....This year should be better with Poorboy's.

Ahhhh... much better pictures. Again, it looks really good. In the other pictures, it looked like your car was black, but now I see it’s eternal blue pearl(?).

I ended up doing my Civic with the Poorboy’s a couple of days ago. The sad thing was it rained the next day. Maybe once I wash it again, I'll top it off with some S100.

Thanks man!

Yeah, It is Eternal Blue. I used Poorboy's SSR#2 followed by EX topped with P21S (which is the dame as S100).

Post pics when you get yours done as well.

You can get them from www.poorboysworld.com They might have distributors in Canada. If not www.Danase.com sells them and they are in Detroit.

Here's a pix of my car. I first clayed it with Mother's Gold Clay Bar, applied Poorboy's Pro Polish and EX-P with a PC, and lastly applied a coat of S100 by hand. I can't believe that after a week (with 2 days of rain) I washed my car and the Poorboy's looked just as shiny as when first applied; good stuff. I just applied the S100 yesterday.

Awesome man! I know what you mean too. My beater is a red 1990 Civic hatch and I hardly washed it at all this winter. Well, two Friday's ago I washed it by hand for the first time in months and it looked great! I also gave it a Poorboy's treatment right before Winter came.

I've been lucky about rain so far tis season. I did squirt it off last night and it beaded up and left it spot free.
