    I used:
    Microfiber Towels
    Meguiars Gold Class Wash
    Meguiars Deep Crystal System: Step 1 (Paint Cleaner: removes oxidation, scratches, and swirls.)
    Meguiars Deep Crystal System: Step 2 (Polish: Creates vibrant wet-look on all colors.)
    And instead of using the Step 3 carnauba wax, i used the S100 paste wax. It really turned out well, i reccomend all the products.
    okay, this is my first attempt, so its nothing incredibly special, it looks great, but the pics dont do justice.

    looks good, I think a claybar on your hood will really help though.

    lol, i need to get some used rims is what i need.
    Its just my daily beater until i get my foxbody 5.0 :hs:
    The hood has some hail damage to it, it isnt as bad as it looks in the pics, but the sun was shining right on it, highlighting the little flaws.

    Will all claybar kits be fine or should i fish around for a certain one?

    I really don't know much about claybars honestly. From what I sat back and read in this forum, when I see paint like that scottwax and some other regulars mention clay bars mostly for that type of thing. I'm sure if you had some specific questions about it they would answer them

    btw: try to find some acura integra LS rims (the spoked kind). They look pretty good on civics and you can pick up a set for $400 or less pretty easily. GSR rims looks pretty good as well but those are more expensive.

    I agree that claying the hood would help. Clay Magic has the best consumer level clay bar out right now.

    Overall, your paint looks pretty damn good. Just don't forget to dress the tires and fenderwells next time you detail it. ;)

    Just spray some Armor All or something similar on the tires and into the fenderwells. You will get this look:

    See how nice and black looking the fenderwell is?
