My FN2 Honda Civic Type R

Hey everyone!

So I picked up my new (to me) car last Monday and yesterday I decided to have cleaning session!
My process as follows:

Wash with angel wax shampoo
De-tar with autofinesse obliTARate
clayed with autofinesse clay bar and dodo clay lube
a coat of autofinesse triple
a coat of autoglym HD paste wax
Dodo future armour on wheels
megs tyre stuff on the tyres
etc, etc, etc, ect!









Let me know what you think!

Cheers, Sam

Looking good. I really like these, but I hear the ride's less than comfy. This would be a big negative for me as I have the back of an 80 year old. I need to get rid of my Celica on the same basis. Though to be fair the Seats are a joy once I've slid into position! I can't believe buying a car is such a pain! Never had a problem before, even found it enjoyable. Tartan slippers for me I think.

What celica do you have? I had a Tsport a few years ago when I was 19, loved that car but I managed to write it off
My civic is quite firm but the optional 19" alloys don't help!

You do sit really low in them celiacs though, I remember it feeling like I was sitting on the floor! haha.

Hi Sam, it's only an '02 140. The leather seats are great. They are low, and the ride's firm. It'll be tough to get rid of despite the ride. I think its aged well, and cleans up nice. The solid-black paint is pure lurpak. I genuinely love the car, but I think its time for a change.

Nice car, I really like these, and I also think that's the best colour for one too! Good job finding one with those wheels!
