    Hi,

    Have you heard of Poorboys products? particularly their 'Black Hole glaze? well if you want to take your finish to another level, thats the product that can help, although, is the car swirled? these swirls that you can see under light, mainly the sun, can rob the finish of its true colour, if so, you will never achieve the finish you are looking for until they are removed.

    See what these swirls can do to a finish, Im sure yours isnt this bad, but even the lightest of swirls can have a bad effect, on the right are the results after I corrected it with the correct pad and polish for the vehicles paint.



    And the results that can be achieved on Black paint, I used the Black Hole glaze applied by machine on these





    I hope Ive helped :-)

    Michael.

    cheers michael,
    as you say my car isn`t as badly swirled and when i`ve polished it etc i do it in straight lines so as to minimise any lines, however i will have to invest in a da or polisher to take it to another level, but thanks for your help & i shall also get some black hole glaze, would this go on before or after the fk1000? keith

    No problem at all,

    Yes, always apply a glaze before LSP, (Last Step Product) as the wax/sealants 'lock in' the finish of the glaze
