I tried to paint the Civ diamond white today. Looks just like an Aurora or STS

Thanks road salt!

I agree Vince. I just washed mine and it is looking sharp. I had to pay a price for it though. I hand washed(and dryed) it and its only 37 degrees.... What happened to that thread "You're a car nut if..."

salt doesn't show up on white as easily as on black... I can't drive home from the carwash w/o getting it dirty again.

Are you kidding man, white never shows dirt!
LOL. MY. ***. IT. DOESN'T.



For cars, I've had to wash/maintain now, 2 white, 1 black, 1 red, 1 silver and 1 green.

Yes...black is bad, but white isn't great at all. Hell, I can see WATER streaks in it if all it did is RAIN on it.

Just a tip for everyone, whether you have black or white: make sure you have a good coat or two of a quality wax on the car for the winter. As long as we haven't been having much salty crap this year, I've found the last couple winters that my car stays much cleaner than they used to keeping a good coat of wax. The dirty stuff just doesn't stick quite as well because the surface is so slick.
