Default Detailed: 2003 Sapphire Blue Pearl Honda Accord V6 Coupe

Detailed this Honda Accord Coupe V6 awhile back.

This car didn't get many washes and sat outside for the majority of the time. Paint was pretty swirly but since the CC was pretty soft, I didn't need a vary aggressive combination. I would say 90% correction was achieved.

Mods:
- Tanabe Hyper-Medallion catback exhaust
- RV6P precat deletes
- RV6P j pipe
- RV6P race pipe
- Fujita CAI

Prep:
Dawn wash
Megs mild clay w/ ONR clay lube

Wheels:
Megs GC shampoo
FSU Wheel Cleaner Gel
Megs APC 10:1
BMT Matte Tire Finish
Zaino Z2 / Z5 50/50 mix w/ ZFX

Polish:
Megs M205 / 4"/5.5" LC orange
Megs M105 / 4"/5.5" LC white
Straight IPA wipedowns

LSP:
Zaino Z2 / Z5 50/50 mix w/ ZFX
Z6 wipedown
DG AW

Trim:
Black Wow
303 AP

Onto the pictures!

Ewww

Wheels had some serious caked-on brake dust. Looking forward for trying some P21S wheel gel and a EZ Detail Brush mini.








Sick.

Lots of swirls... paint was dull... no wax... pretty beat up.

Micro-marring after M205 / LC orange combo. Damn soft CC!

The rest of the pictures were taken after a M205 / LC white pass.

I read a thread where someone used Zaino Z2/Z5 mixed instead of using just one. Mixed them up in a ZFX bottle with a 3 drops. I thought the end result was pretty nice.

Sun was going down so I didn't get any good sun shots.





Reflections look nice though!



The metallic flakes looked amazing!


Black Wow'd!



Thanks for looking! C&C welcome.

Looks good mang. The effect would be best if you took a full shot of the car as well!

Looks good.

For Black trim, I use Mothers back to Black. There is also Black WOW which you can get from www.obsessivedetail.com

Just owns that Shop, and he is a hell of a guy. I love Black WOW and Back to Black.
