NEW 2017 HONDA CIVIC TYPE R FK8

A new Honda Civic Type R FK8 in metallic black with just 1300 miles on the clock in for a much needed paint enhancement detail and ceramic coating. Serious angles on this one!

Swirlmarks, holograms, a strike through on the rear quarter from what looks like a knock from something pretty sharp (as it’s taken the paint off of the arch lip) and general lacklustre to the paintwork was taken care of with a one to two stage machine polish with Carpro Cquartz UK Edition on paintwork and trim to add some decent durability.

Wheel faces, calipers and tyres received Gyeon products, exterior glass polished inside and out then coated in Gtechniq Smart Glass, exhausts treated with Britemax Twins. Interior cleaned and vacuumed throughout.

Some lovely reflections on the latest Honda hot hatch.

The rest of the vehicle had it’s existing ISM coating topped up with Kamikaze Collection Overcoat. An exceptional water hating, durable sacrificial layer that can be applied to paintwork, plastic trim, glass and wheels and offers superb gloss too.

NEW 2016 HONDA CIVIC TYPE R

A new Honda Civic Type R was booked in after seeing the previous black one I detailed a while back and needed some Kamikaze for his R! Single stage machine polish, Kamikaze Collection ISM for paintwork and exterior trim, Gyeon products for exhausts and exterior glass.

Wheels were removed and coated inside and out with Gyeon Rim. Calipers also coated. Tyres dressed in Valetpro Classic dressing. Interior vacuumed throughout and Chemical Guys Inner clean used for dash and panels, fully wrapped prior to collection as with all vehicles that come in – hey presto!

Awesome cars to work on, the shapes and lines in person are completely mental, as is the presence of these Type R’s! Japanese products for Japanese pocket rockets!

BRAND NEW HONDA CIVIC TYPE R

Here’s an awesome brand new Honda Civic Type R which was booked in for a full Kamikaze Collection new car detail.

Kamikaze Diamond Cut, Ichiban finishing polish and artificial clear coat was applied to rid defects, create insane gloss levels and a great base for the hydrocarbon anti scratch, highly hydrophobic ISM coating to sit on. Further more, a layer of Kamikaze Collection Infinity wax was applied the following day for even more gloss and protection. ISM was also applied to exterior trim and Gyeon products for exterior glass.

Interior – carpets wetvacced, vacuumed throughout, Auto Finesse and Chemical Guys products used for the dash and panels. Gyeon products for door shuts.

Engine bay cleaned and dressed with Aerospace 303.

All wheels removed and sealed inside and out with detailer only available Fireball Korea Talon Coating. Calipers were also sealed with Talon. Tyres were then dressed inside and out with Fireball Korea Ultimate Tyre Coating and refitted to factory torque specifications, with the locking nut, badge aligned with the tyre valves and all wheels mounted at 12 o’clock.

Be sure to watch the HD video for the defects – for a new car there were quite a few, this had Supaguard applied by the dealership. Thanks for looking.
