I found myself with a day off so I put it to good use this morning. The interior got a spray down of 303 and front leather seats got a coat of Leather Masters protection cream.

The exterior simply received a wash and spray with Turtle Wax Seal N Shine.

Side note: most of Honda’s Taffeta White paint jobs from this era were single stage and are impossible to keep clean. Debris and fallout just sticks to the surface and doesn’t simply wash off. You have to use polish or clay to clean the surface. Literally a few weeks after a full polish and seal the paint looks dingy up close. It’s my detailer/OCD hearts worst nightmare. If I could do it again I’d pick a non-single stage color!

From a few feet away she looks good though! One of the included pics shows some spots that won’t wash off. I just polished the car recently and it was near showroom at that point.

The water would freeze on my hood and then it would get salt grime all over it on Friday when we get snow again :(

I never liked white cars up until recently, now I'm thinking my next car will be white. Your leather looks like new, even the drivers seat does not show much wear, how many miles on the car?

63,000 miles. I actually thought I uploaded a top down picture of the seat, doesn't look like it took. Ill post it up later. It does have some wear associated with the miles, but I do make it a point to try to keep them looking as good as possible with how I enter and exit the car.
