    Problem w/ Phoenix Yellow paint

    I have a 00` Acura Integra in Phoenix Yellow. I can`t seem to get the paint clean. I`ve tried everything, claybars, waxes, polishes, there`s still water spots and blemishes everywhere. What do I need to use to get this car looking new again. Excuse my vagueness, I`m new

    Was the water well water or hard water? Do have the following equipments? High Polisher with pads and Porter Cable with proper pads. What kind of products do have @ hand If so we can work, If not you will need to take it to a PROFESSIONAL Detailer have him / her take care of your pronlem and they could teach how to properly protect your vehicle from the elements or get more info from Detail city

    Mmmmmmm.... Type R.... :drool I think your paint is ruined. You have no other choice than to just pass in on over to me. I`ll take care of it for you. :naughty

    This is Integra Type R Phoenix Yellow...



    One of the finest cars I`ve ever driven. Someday that elusive Type R sedan will belong to me. Someday........

    What I would try would be some really good paint cleaner like Klasse All in One. Apply it with a Porter Cable and that should clean the paint off. The problem with whites and yellows is that they don`t show the dirt till it gets really bad. You just need some serious muscle behind your polishing efforts. A machine like the Porter Cable will do the trick. Don`t waste time on the cheap buffers at WalMart. That is a Type R and not a Geo. Use the right tools for the job on it. Where do you live? I`m sure there is someone around where you live that can lend a hand.
