Stallion , I can agree with you here 100% .There is no more honda loyalty . People have to remember its not directly the companies fault but is to whom represents them. You are not the first person and probably will not be the last this will happen to .It's a cycle.You hire poor inexperienced labor well that's what you get in return [for instance]. I'm sure the person detailing the car obviously use to high of a finishing buff pad Or was to aggressive with it.I have a nhbp r18 and let me tell you how difficult the paint is to manage on it .I ended up fixing and cleaning the vehicle personally because I don't trust outside company's anymore because there is just is no loyalty or customer satisfaction (even though we still pay for a honda cert. warranty) .It's all about saving the next nickle or dime for them and cutting corners like every as* BACKWARDCOMPANYIN AMERICA.. I wish you luck hereand hopethey correct everything for you.

Were they able to restore your paint any? Looks like they did. Can't really tell.

Looks like they burned through the clear but not sure.

Man, everytime I look at these pictures I die a little. If you slapped a machine buffer in paris hiltons hands and let her have at it, she would've done a better job. And she's stupid!


I could be a mentally retarded torso with no arms and no legs and STILL do a better job than this! I mean COME ON!!!

ya, they really managed to eff up my paint. there was a spot on the rear bumper that was scratched really bad. the detailer was afraid to get aggressive with it because he didnt want to make it worse. i told him lets see what you can do. worst case scenario, it will need a repaint. he wet sanded and wet sanded and polished it out. all gone. they really know what their doing.

Yeah, when it comes to the plastic bumpers or HFP lips, you have to take breaks in between buffing as the plastic and also the paint on the bumpers gets soft.

man good thing! I started to think that the paint in some areas was just way too damaged. It's amazing what a machine buffer in the RIGHT hands can change!

I'm really happy for you. What about your hood?

I'm really surprised to read that they actually wetsanded the plastic bumper/lip part on the car without messing up the clear. I'm always under the impression that our paint is too soft or not thick enough to do any type of sanding. Wow!


any pix of this scratch on the bumper you mentioned? like before and after? I'd like to see.

You said something about the bumper having a scratch on it and they sanded it. I don't know if you're talking about that. But the picture that I guess I could talk about that you posted that bothered me the most was this picture.



Those faded flat spots made me cringe. It looked like it was too far gone. Like the clear was just sanded down to ****!

But I guess our clear coat is stronger than I thought.


I'd REALLY love to buff my car with my buffer but ever since finding out that our hood and maybe front fenders generate crows feet once you take a buffer to them, it killed it for me. I was turned off. I'm not too sure if my car would do that but I have already buffed my hood 1 time to test out my skills and the buffer I have and noticed like a week later those little rice grain cracks etc on like the passenger side of the hood the most. when someone else on here mentioned their hood having sudden cracks and crows feet on it after they had their car buffed out, thats when I went to my car and noticed it. I started to think that our car's clear coat can't hold up to a buffer. Even a light polishing pad with a light polish on mild speeds. I don't know for sure though. I still would like to butch up sometime and just do my whole car.
