    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, 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.







    Engine Detailing - Extreme Makeover
    Besides restoring a show car shine to the exterior and cleaning and conditioning the interior, we will also be detailing the engine compartment using cleaning and degreasing products from Meguiar's New Detailer Line.

    Mike, I think you need to make a trip out to the east coast sometime and let us have some of this fun! I wish I could get out to CA, it would be a great experience to take part in something like this.

    Maybe I'll start saving my pennies to buy you a plane ticket to New England!

    Yes, we'll be working on it most of the day, starting with the engine compartment, then washing the car, then the interior and last but least the exterior.

    Plenty to do... shall I add your name to the list?

    Yes, after the last extreme makeover, she volunteered their Honda because they want to sell it, or trade it in and hopefully get top dollar either way.

    It's a win/win proposition as I've been looking for an average car for a engine detailing write-up and a car with a neglected finish to show what can be accomplished with ColorX by hand, followed by NXT Tech Wax by hand.

    We'll also have a chance to use a variety of products on the interior.

    I'm sure you will be doing this any ways, but could you document every stinking detail -- of the detail!

    I am itching to see the process of every section of the detail. Process of evaluation for the not only the exterior, but any interior problems, attacking the engine compartment, and what you will do with the wheels.

    Could you also please provide vehicle specs.? Year, miles, condition of interior & engine compartment, expected problem areas (beyond those described for the exterior).

    Can't wait to see the results and learn some new information! Just wish I could be there to help, and learn hands-on.
