So Angelo finally let me do my magic and it turned out amazing! We went ahead and did a Full Interior/Exterior Detail on the Integra. BEWARE TONS OF PICTURES!

NOW TO THE FUN PART! EXTERIOR! Unfortunately, I took all before pictures of the door jambs and forgot to get after shots, but everything I took a picture of was either removed or cleaned ;)































Washing the wheels and door jambs..










Claying the car..






Test Spot on the hood...


50/50 on hood with Menzerna IP/LC PFW Pad


The wheels get the best treatment possible, I swear that wheel wasnt floating when I took the picture! :lol:

Taking the wing off, this enables me to polish the trunk lid the correct way.














Taping off the car...




Did I mention this was a Jap car?? :lol:


It aint a tight car unless its Type R!




50/50 on Front Fender after IP/PFW




Did I mention this car needed to be polished??


It needed to be washed at this point!


Last shots for day 1...Still need to go over again with 106ff/white and put LSP on.






After the wing bottom was polished, we re-installed to do the top. The tape is so that I dont hit the already polished fenders while polishing the wing...


Final Rinse Down..
