    Why? I've never had any clear coat issues living in AZ.

    I kind of like the trunk without the Civic emblem... it looks clean. I want to have someone photoshop the wheels white.. I think that would look amazing, with the red lip

    I'm not an expert at all, but I'm pretty sure it is. when I run my finger over it, I can tell it feels different. gonna have my friend who works at a body shop look at it tomorrow.

    Have Ranney look at the paint and see if he or might know someone that can help you. Also start with a white pad a light polish before going to a orange and M105. Tell him Angelo said HI ( I use to sell him products when I was at CMA )

    Typically its around $180. But I know the Owner so I pay a little less.
    Let me know if you want to schedule something! I'll put in a good word.
