    Just got done waxing my civic *pics*

    Took me about 4 hours total to wash/wax/armorall etc. I am a poor college student so i can't afford the expensive shit yet, i just used Perma Plate stuff i got with my car, turned out decent though :dunno:

    I waxed it in overcast weather, i waited until the sun came out to take the picture, it had been done for an hour or so.

    Looks shiny enough to me. Nothing wrong with using retail level products, they are a lot better than they used to be. :)

    Only thing is that it did not remove ANY water spots. I have some pretty bad ones on the hood, i put 3 coats of wax and put a lot of elbow grease into it, and i noticed no difference in the water spots.

    Dude your car looks awesome.
    Like Scott said, OTC products are awesome now. Mothers and Meguiars have led the way. I use them still.
