Honda Civic Hybrid just detailed

Honda Civic Hybrid just detailed

It was referred to me by my good friend, 2 months old, 1 careful driver, but was knocked by a motorcyclist ...urgh..

car looks cool, but under the sun, RIDs appears here & there, some minor scratches on the driver side doors & passenger lower doors (till i point out to the owner)

This was the 4th/5 rides i detailed, thru out 4 days of break (wash another 3) .......everyone think i am car crazy...but i just cant stand doing nothing other than starring at dirty rides.....while having a stay over at my bro place....hand polished his whole car, didn't thought of writing up (should have taken pics) 3 longs hours....didnt had a Meguiars stuff, took his bottle of Soft 99 polish cream & scrub through the whole car (full of marks & scratches) Now my arm is feeling like Arnold Schwarzenegger

What i did : in 5 hours

2 bucket wash

APC for wheels, arches with many brushes

Wipe down & Gold class for interior

Gold class TAR remover

Clayed with mild clay & Last touch

M 80 with CCS Polishing pad/9227

M 80 with CCS finishing pad/ROB

NXT by hand/TLC

UQD to finish

1st time seeing Hybrid engine, hard to believe, u cant hear the engine cranking sound & idling too. the moment you depress the brakes, the engine stops & its on electric motor. the moment you go down from a sloop the engine will recharges itself . electric power assist engine....1300 cc on Fuel & 500 cc on electric.....its hype thing in Malaysia now

No engine detailing was done due to the shortage of time

The Honda Civic Hybrid is a hybrid powertrain version of the Honda Civic sedan. Honda continuously variable transmission and Integrated Motor Assist hybrid system thus creating a first fuel-efficient hybrid sedan in its model lineup with some styling differences between the USDM and JDM models. Due to a delay in rolling out the second generation, the first generation Civic Hybrid selling slowly in malaysia for a price tag of RM 129,000

lower front skirting was knocked away by a motorcycle & mark left behind

the owner didn't even realized there is a scratches & marks

Tatata the final results

suddenly the pearl re-appears again...feeling like Capt Jack Sparrow again

I just love The depth

the Last time that the owner saw this glow was the day he got his rides, 2 months ago & he is smiling away to see his babes glowings

Buffing off NXT

Applying UQD

final inspections

final inspection - it was close to 8.30pm (as i am fighting against my Fatigue & hunger)



the owner is happy to re gain his chariot glows again

i can see the smiles on the owner face, ease off all my muscle aches

I just dont know why but i just love looking at bumper slides area

I never expect 5 hours on such a new ride, but as i looked back i miss every moment & encounters (challenge) that brought smile to owner as his rides glaze again

after this, went out to buy my dinner & had a quick i go to detail my own ride till 12.30am (prior in detailing this I actually hands on a Proton Persona who was badly deserted by he owner, that makes my arms & shoulders sore till today)

Once again thanks for taking your precious time & effort in viewing my Art
