Single polish step on a Honda Civic...

Here's a Honda Civic I recently finished up. Single polish step, then wax. Removed about 60% of the defects. The remaining 40% were a little too deep for a polish to remove.

Befores

Thanks guys! This was just a single polishing step, then wax. About 4 hours start to finish.

Fun and rewarding, but hard yes in the heat of my garage. (no air flow, but shaded) I really enjoyed the beers afterwards doing that stuff.

I definetly could not do it for a living, that's for damned sure. I'd fling my G110 at people who complained about something after working on their crap for 4-16 hours...whatever it took.

Trick is to do a good job so you don't give them the opportunity to complain

I hear ya, but surely they'd bitch about the driveshaft or subframe connectors not being shiney enough.

A+ work!

My car should produce some pretty good before and afters, it has so many swirls. I wish I knew how to take care of the issue without burning the clear, but that's what you're here for!

I can get you after 5ish, B. I am right down the street from Nick.

Say Nick, I think this would be the perfect car to let me practice on.



In all seriousness though, don't let the clothes fool you. I bust ass when it comes to working. I may be free this weekend if you need help with anything.
