Default New Civic EX

Just could not do the Jetta thing. Picked up a civic on friday to commute back and forth to work. Tinted and put some bigger wheels just to make it look a bit different. Drives like a econ/commuter but std stereo is surprisingly good. Love Civics, you do the service checks only 'cause you feel guilty. Naturally 2 coats of RejeX went on this weekend. The red Accord behind it is going on 8 months with it's RejeX and still beads like crazy.

I put 2 coats on the new Traverse 3 mos ago and the surface felt like glass. It still beads water like crazy but the glass smooth feeling is gone

What gives ?

Nice looking car. The civic is a vehicle that you can't go wrong with. Where do you pick up Rejex? I ussually use McGuier's Gold Class but always up for trying something else. With a black car, I don't want the paint to fade. After 5 years it still looks good.

Since I use it on everything, I bought a gallon a year or so ago. Try Rejex.com
or etackle.com

you will get a few experts here that will violently disagree but it is damn close. My neighbor loves it.

here's what the inventor of Rejex wrote me on the diff:

1) Doesn’t last as long

2) Doesn’t provide as slick a surface for bug removal

3) Yellows (a little) when put on white paint

4) Requires more effort to remove because of dusting

5) Has abrasives and can’t be used on plexiglass

6)does not hold up well to nearly heat as well as RejeX.
