Latest pics of my 2016 Civic LX....clear side markers, mudguards, blacked out grille, EX-T wheels, SiriMoto strut tower bar, Progress anti-sway bar, leather steering wheel/shift knob/center console.
These are exactly the products I use. I have been using Meguiars products for many years. I have been extremely careful when washing my car, like the 2-bucket wash and wash from top then bottom, my car is still full of swirls. Good it does not show since it is silver,Meguir Ultimate Polish, Swirl X, and Compound
I never have swirl marks in my CBP. I do have scratches now and then. I use Meguire's Ultimate Compound.IMO, CBP is the best color for a Civic Coupe. I will buy a SI soon but I am not sure if I would buy a CBP.
Before the current Mercedes, I had a black Honda Prelude. That was many years ago before I learnt about detailing. I now detail my car religiously but it is an easy task because it is silver. If I buy a CBP Civic, I may be a slave of it.
How do you guys deal with swirls, scratches on your cars?
