    ATR Paint Correction

    For those who care, and those who don't

    I had the rear bumper and spoiler resprayed on the ATR a couple of weeks ago, and it went off last week to Pro Reflect for paint correction.

    Mmm...

    I always liked the Accord Type R.

    Drive it like you stole it, all day, every day and it'll just thank you for it.

    Looks awesome, although I don't think your exhausts are level

    I am never quite sure what " paint correction " actually means. Is it like touching up scratches or something else.
    It looks like it works whatever it entails that's a really clean looking shiny finish.

    Orca, as in removing swirls and adding clarity to the paint, a 'paint restoration' in other words.

    Looks good Chris I like the smaller plate on that.

    Lovely lawnmower mate. And Doingitsideways is right, the lefthand pipe is slightly lower than the right.

    Accord Type R is the second longest car I've owned (at 2.5 years behined a Clio RS200 at 3.5 years)... Mine was also red and they do come up well with some effort

    Are you on accordr.org? Plenty of knowledge and spare parts there, I'm still a moderator, think it's been 11 years now

    I had the pre facelift model, looks far better IMO, had the after market exhaust on it and it blended in better.

    Looking good

    Just had a look at auto trader/pistonheads etc & there doesn't seem to be that many of these about. Some of them say 'Euro R' & look a little different, nice though

    Plus I'd be reluctant to buy a car back in worse condition then when I sold it

    Shame though
