  • Detailed: 2009 Acuta TL SH-AWD

    This car was in relatively good shape, considering it was about 3 months old when I got my hands on it. Some lights swirls, but mostly bug guts and pollen/dirt. Decided to do a 1-step polish on this one.

    No interior before shots, as it wasn't all that dirty. Just a basic wipedown and vacuum was all that was really needed.

    I think this car looks better in person. It was the 1st time I have seen one in person, and it looks better than it did in ads I have seen. The paint has a nice pearl in it, instead of a metal flake. I think the pearl has a classier look to it.

    Last Shot:
    I was just finishing waxing the car, when all of the sudden I heard a pop. Kinda like something hit the car. I was at the back drivers side, I look up, and see the owner with this "what the hell?" kinda look on his face. So I walk up to the front to find this:

    A bird just dropped a large **** right on the hood. Thank goodness I was able to get it up right away. It was gross
    I heard this was good luck, so, whatever.

            What do you do for the insects on the bumper? Use a foaming gun so the soap can sit on and work into the leftovers?

              Duragloss makes a bug remover or you can even try Stoner's Tarminator.

                    That's a helluva detail job! My 2001 Acura TL never looked that good.
