My new Si she's all blacked out. Except for the wheel lugs

Everytime I see pictures of a clean CBP Civic here, I want to get one.

However, a black car is a lot of work especially with my slight OCD! Also, in a long run, the scratches and chips are more pronounced in a black car.

Oh I already know. She's not my first black car... Nor my last.

Do you care for swirls?
I learnt about detailing only with my current Mercedes. It is silver so it hides the swirls well. I don't mind washing the car often but not sure how I would react to swirls.

Fortunately I have detailed cars in my past and I'm familiar with the needs of black cars. But yes I'm kinda OCD too at least I have unlimited carwashes at my dealer.

Its absolutely bound to get scratches, I live in Chicago so it's only a matter of when not if it gets scratched, dented, rear ended or damaged in any way shape of form, My fellow Chicago citizens are the reason nobody has nice things around here...the damage clock is already ticking..........

Agreed. Scratches in a black car will be more pronounced.

My silver car is well maintained and many times when I washed my car, I found new scratches or chips. I will definitely install clear bra once I take delivery of the car.

Here is my 2017 Honda Civic EX-T. All I have done so far is a blacked out grill, window tint, and F1R F27 Bronze wheels. hopefully more coming soon.

This is my first black car, and it's definitely hard to keep clean. I've been at the carwash every week. Do you have any tips?
