I love a clean car

..don't you?
























The 5-0 flicker gotta watch out!








I havent cleaned my car in a very long time and i am VERY pleased with how it turned out with all the info on car care products i have found on this site.

- Meguiars NXT wash
- Mothers Polish
- Meguiars Tech wax
- No Touch Wet n Protect tire shine (a little sloppy, but best stuff ever. no browning or cracking)

Thanks for looking!

Re: I love a clean car

Thanks guys! Last night my parents reminded me to move my car so the sprinklers dont run all over it in the morning... and i thought that i could wake up before they came on. and. i failed.... dsfj;fksldjkldsfjsdk;klsdj;

Hey guys, the only way i can make my paint all smooooooth and slick is if i just claybar, polish, and wax it. a week or two later when i just wash it, no wax or anything else, it feels really rough! My uncle never waxes his ep3 and it feels just as smooth as mine when i polish and wax. Is there different paint quality from a civic VP (dx) and any other civic?

Re: I love a clean car

Looks good man. Did you buy the car used? Cause when I got mine the person who had it before me must have had it near a beach cause the windshield is all scratched from the wipers like sand was on it. My paint isn't the smoothest either but its usually smooth for about a month, depending on the weather, after I wax it.

I got it brand new. Funny thing is, when i took it to the body shop last year to get some dings out, the guys that worked there asked if anybody else worked on this car before or if it's been in any accidents. No accidents.. no other body work done.. they asked that because they pointed out that the passenger door was SLIGHTLY, very slightly a different shade of SSM. And now that they pointed it out, it sticks out a bit more in person. Also the passenger door is not smooth. Even after a good clay, polish and wax. Its just horrible. I wonder why this is... But thanks man!

Re: I love a clean car

Somebody clipped me in the passenger rear quarter panel (in the parking lot so no insurance) and the body shop guy didn't quite match up the color so my bumper is slightly darker. That bugs the living crap out of me. I'm just waiting for somebody to rear end me so I can get that **** fixed. Your door looks okay through.

Dude that sucks. Is there any way you can take it back to him and have him fix it? That would seriously bug the crap out of me too!

Exactly what i was thinking. HFP skirts would be nice. But i'm not really picky on that. I just want a good deal!

Thanks man. But what do you mean on clean? Like clean cool/nice car? Or clean sparkley shiny car? Sorry that just threw me off a little.
