First full exterior detail since I got it in November. While there were no visible swirls/marring, I've been a bit dissatisfied with the clarity and gloss of the paint so I decided to do some polishing. Thanks for reading

white paint likes pure carnauba to get that wet shine. i found using meguiard #7 glaze as a wipe on wipw off prior ti a non cleaning carnuba P21s or meguiars yellow wax gave a oily wet shine that was not mirror like that the sealants (Zaino) gave it.

beading doesn't last long (~1month) for this type of finish so it was just when i felt nostalgic. most of the time it got the sealant for protection from bugs and bird bombs,

It does look very good.....whenever I wax/polish my car...I hate to take it out because it doesn't
take long to get dirty again. That's why I'm not as anal about wax/polish products as I am about
oil, ATF, coolant etc...I even use regular old Turtle Wax that I got on sale at AA for $1.65 a bottle.

PS: The Civic SI is very nice does it use the 1.5T or the 2.0T?
