    1993 Red Honda Civic - Extreme Makeover

    Red Honda - Extreme Makeover

    On Wednesday, October 6th here at our Irvine location, starting at 9:00am Mike Pennington, LT1Corvette, CarGirl, and myself will be performing an extreme makeover on this red Honda Civic.



    While in the above photo the car looks to be in pretty decent shape, upon closer inspection it is easy to see the finish has been neglected. This daily driver is typically parked outside 24 by 7 and as such, the finish is under constant attack from the environment and airborne contaminants. The goal is to restore the interior and exterior to their maximum potential to increase it's resale value.

    Some parts of the car were extremely oxidized and as we found out later as we began to work on the car that parts of the car appear to have been re-painted as they were single-stage paint.



    Here's a shot of the hood after we clayed one half of the hood with Quik Clay System, and then applied one, well worked-in application of ColorX .

    I believe they used hyper-dressing on the engine bay. I am not sure what dilution though.

    Simply amazing! Can't wait to see the whole write-up.. So Mike, being a single stage paint, did you pull some paint off the car to the softbuff polishing pad you used? Great work team!
