OK this is based on my afternoon of playing about with some new products on the Black pearl paint on my Vectra. And sorry no pics as I just got finished and its going dark.
1. Blackfire finishing polish. Got this from Spoony as new, and had it in mind to use it to remove some light swirling and marring on the bonnet of the car from claying last week and not having a product to lift the surface.
OK, this is a medium purple colour and has a paste consistency that (by hand!) worked rather hard but could be felt doing it's job, and didn't need hours of working to get the result either.
I did the entire bonnet in one application applied in 8 sections if that makes sense, then allowed to flash over before removing. I used a new cotton on each panel, and it was quite difficult to remove, so after one attempt with cotton, I followed with a m/f cloth and could see a very visible improvement. I then went on and did the same process on the rear hatch.
Overall I was stunned by this product by hand it is hard work but truly worth the effort and if I had used a specialist sponge results would have been breathtaking I am 100% convinced!
For anyone looking to perform paint correction without a machine I would give this product a try you will NOT be dissapointed.
2. CG's Glossworkz Glaze. I met DavidG over at Carwashnwax.co.uk at their place in Halfway near Glasgow today, to I thought, pick up EZ creme glaze, but after looking at the car and listening to what I planned this weekend, I was steered towards the GG. I was told how to apply and remove it and after I had used the Blackfire, I set a coat of GG on the bonnet using a microfibre applicator, I tried to ensure even coverage and allowed it to cure while repeated on the rear panels.
I buffed off and it was a joy on and off people! and then following David advice left it 10 or so minutes to allow the oils to further cure then buffed with a fresh 350gsm MF to a stunning shine. I topped it off with a carnauba wax (gold) from AS to act as LSP
3. Tardis. Very quick review as it was my first experience of this. It works this stuff is BRILLIANT!!! I finally have tar free alloysand sill's
I know it's not pushing any boundaries but I hope this is of use to someone. Thanks for reading
