As a bonus.....had the privilege of hosting Honda Pro Jason tonight who will give you his insights on my SH. Incredibly knowledgeable on all things Honda as his day job is educating Honda dealers and customers on the features on their vehicles. Even taught me a few keyfob tricks that I was unaware of as a multi Prelude owner. Check out his impressions here...

Hey there, can you take detailed photos of the rear wheel well arches with the rubber gaskets removed? Thanks!
  • ✓ comments::comments.copied!
Good question. I’ll provide detail measurements this weekend. 105-135 microns is the general range of where I started and typical for factory Honda paint thickness in the 90s. Wet sanding in this case was very minimal. Just a light scuff with 3M Trizact 5000 which is like a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It basically just removes contaminants (bugs / embedded dirt) and levels the surface. Very, very minimal clear removal and maybe not even measurable.

Are you able to test the thickness of the paint after the wet sanding?

For anyone needing shipping help, I can provide a reliable / cost effective contact as well.

I'll add pics of the body panel vins and paint measurements shortly for those wondering.

Thanks for following my auction! This is a beautiful and rare Pearl SH that would be just as at home as a Show Pony or daily enthusiast driver. Or both. It was well maintained by it's ~20 year previous elderly owners who kept it in a heated garage and it's meticulous care continued with me, a Honda Engineer that updated the services. It's a blast to drive, turn key in a hot pearl color scheme. Paint is baby smooth after paint correction and Graphene and will be a prize in anyone's collection!
