    Hey all, I used to own a black '02 mitsubishi galant, but it died, so I went halfway with my dad on this 02 civic. I love it to death, but unfortunately, my mom took it to some fucktards at a drive through carwash and the employees fucked up my interior :squint: . In short, today was the day to set it right. The interior pics aren't after me cleaning it, so bear with me. All that I did was wash with Meguiars Gold Class w/ sheep skin mitt, sprayed turtle wax express wax on the wet car before drying (first time I've done it, I'm used to poorboy's natty after polish and seal) to give it a quick "pop". It worked great, and the paint is super slick and soft. Windows with Stoner's IG, tires with Black Magic "wet" tire foam (awful, but it was free :hs: ). Vacuumed, shift knob and steering wheel were treated with Meguiars leather conditioner, and that about sums it up. I got tired of taking pics, so you'll have to wait for the updated ones. Here ya go:

    Looks really good! :)

    I see you have the same problem taking interior pics as I do-trying to shoot when half the interior is in the shade and half in the sun. Really hard to show off your hard work that way, eh? :sad2:

    Oh yeah......Nanowax is really good. It's more than just a booster wax. I used for over 3 months in my business.

    Okay. No pics just yet, but I'll review it. I didn't strip the eagle one, but there's a HUGE difference honestly. It doesn't have the shine that I wanted, but the depth is just ridiculous. It looks like you're looking into a mirror. Well done eagle one, but still isn't as good as natty's.
