Where to begin regarding this fantastic and special Civic Type R! Initial inspections showed tons of damage from the factory with deep scratching on the roof, lower sections of the vehicle, and buffer holograming. Owner and I created a realistic expectation for coating the non-paint protected film area. Don’t think I’ll ever enjoy doing black again!
