    Alright, been shitty and snowy up here and today was the first day I could properly roll my car out on the driveway and really work on the exterior. The car has never been buffed or anything other then the regular wax's every 3-4 months. Figured it was time it get some proper attention.

    The car is a 2001 Honda Accord, had some pretty significant swirling and scratches, no major scratches luckly.. the few there were came out with some Scratch X, really starting to like that stuff.

    A few before pics.

    Major dooring scratch on the rear door.. you can see it in the middle.

    Sun was out for a little bit, but ended up getting real cloudy.. and fucked the rest of my pictures after this.

    Ended up cutting with some 3M Extra Cutting Compound with a foam pad,
    After that I also used some 3M Swirl Remover.

    After the cutting and swirl removing, I moved onto a Meguiars Machine Glaze. :bowdown: Really love this stuff.

    After cleaning up any excess glaze, I moved onto finishing up with some Meguiars Tech Wax.. also threw on some Meguairs Details Spray wax on the rims, and some tire gloss.

    www.xat.com has a free image optimizer. Lets you resize and compress pretty quickly while still maintaining excellent quality.

    that paint looks FANTASTIC :bowdown:

    Can't stand people who treat their wheels like that though.

    Worth the $400 for new oems

    I love seeing a well detailed car in a snowy area. That shows dedication. Especially when it is a DD honda. I would expect the OP to be someone who would be INSANELY OCD when he gets his first supercar.
