Car Show Prep & Mainanance

Before a show, I always try and get the long jobs and interior out the way. I wash it with a heavy dose of Auto Finesse Lather, run over it with a clay bar, polish it with Auto Finesse Tripple (unless it needs machining), and then finish it all off with a few coats of Auto Finesse Illusion wax.

I clean and condition the leather, using Auto Finesse Hide, and work in an interior quick detailer on the plastics and vents with a hog hair brush. I finish it all off by brushing the Alcantara down with a stiffer brush.

Car history

I’ve had the Civic for four and half years, now. I bought it as a run around, after having a driving ban lifted. I started off by cleaning it up and doing a few modifications to it, and then the snow ball effect kicked in. A full respray, custom wheels, hydraulics, full custom re-trim, smooth bay, three engines etc. It’s now running a turbocharged B18c4, producing 330bhp, with a tucked and smoothed engine bay built by Street Function Garage. The interior has been fully re-trimmed by Lavish Automotive, using Recaro CS seats, an EK9 dash and a whole lot of leather and Alcantara.

The paint is a few years old now, and due to being arch-to-lip too much and civics being made from scrap metal, it’ll need work soon. It looks clean to the eye, thanks to awesome products, but next on the list may be a colour change. At least all the smoothing has been done already! My favourite part of the car is the aggressive fitment, made possible with hydraulics and wide wheels.
