Dang prima donna in the garage. Gotta have your winter beater ready to go, here in Western PA.

Just a Quick question for the people who own a hatch ex and above. I'm thinking of trading my WOP touring sedan for a hatch. Could use the space for family. I really dont want the sport touring because it seems you loose alot of trunk space.

Have any of you guys seen a ex or exl in WOP hatch.with black leather or cloth? Seems to be a Unicorn in my area..

Finally got the car waxed up. Used wolfgang 3.0 sealant. This is after about 2 full layers, possibly 3 on certain panels. Sonax speedwax on the wheels.

I need help and advice. I posted in the detailing section a plea, but there has been no response. I have been searching for answers to what I should and shouldn't do to my WOP 2018 Civic Si finish. Your post is the first one that I found that may begin me on a path to finding what I want to do to my finish.

I like what you did to your Civic. Buffing and putting on a Power Lock sealant was one of the options that I was considering. I imagine that it would come out close to your look. That helps me choose.

I am not sure about the orange peel in the paint. I was considering a light sanding before buffing to reduce the amount of orange peel. I have seen other warnings about not doing that on factory finishes. What would be the effect of a more mirror look on the WOP? Would that be too glossy for white? Is the slightly frost effect of orange peel helpful or hurtful to the look? Just beginning to find answers.

This thread may be the more appropriate one for me to find the answers since white is so unique a finish.

Switched out the side markers to smoke gray a week after I got her. Upgrading from the 2016 base model in black crystal to the EX-T. Must say I prefer the white orchid pearl. She's beautiful :)

Installed my Calais yellow fog light bulbs. They are pretty good for ~$20.
