'Blackfired'black edition 997 Convertible

As mentioned previously, the wife's got a new convertible and after resisting spending an afternoon on it for a few weeks now, I was instructed to give it a once over today.

So did a straight forward clean:
Cherry snow foam
2b wash with Autoglym conditioning shampoo
Decontamination with a coat of Trix
Clayed with a G3 mitt

Then over to my favourite finishing product, Blackfire Gloss Enhancing Polish and a coat of Blackfire Black Ice wax.

I'd tried the wax before but put it over AFPP which isn't the right way to do it. Following Rich's advice, I put it straight onto GEP. The finish is super slick and the stuff is very easy to apply, although it's clearly essential to put it on very lightly and as thin as possible, so a little goes a very long way.

The results speak for themselves and I'll just spritz with Midnight sun spray after future washes this autumn and winter.

Needless to say, the missus is rather pleased with the results.

Hope you like it too!

And a couple more from this evening..

Thanks! Picked them both up recently, so the red is next. I saw what you did with the Gto using Essence and was amazed. The depth of colour was amazing. I'm not sure I have the ability, time or patience to do that, but I may go for a machine polish if I'm feeling committed.

Washed the convertible this evening (very quickly) and gave it a spritz with some Blackfire midnight sun detailing spray.

Looks magic!
