Happy New year folks.

I've been trying to keep the cars clean over the winter, but that usually has meant a 2 bucket wash and a prayer once a month. More often than not it would be so damp or start raining, that I didnt bother to even a towel dry.

However, the weather was dry and mild on sunday and I figured I'd at least dry them and top up the wax with some midnight sun spray.

Seeing as I only spent about an hour one each one,the midnight sun and black ice was still hanging in, although clearly the harsh weather had taken its toll. However a spritz with MS detailing spray to add a few polymers and a bit of carnauba and they were looking reasonable again.

I thought they came out rather nice for this time of the year and thought I'd share them with the Blackfire fans on the Polished Bliss forum.

Both cars looking superb with the Blackfire, I'm going to give it a try when the weather picks up.
Can I ask, did you apply the GEP by hand or machine. Either way, did it improve the paint finish significantly.
Thanks

Sparky - GEP can be applied by hand or machine, the latter gives a great base and nice reflective finish.

Lol, this made me laugh - I know the feeling! Thanks for sharing your update and images; both cars are looking very good considering the time of year.

Gave the black car a quick wash on Friday night.
Just 2 buckets, a dry and a spritz of Blackfire Midnight sun detailing spray. It had a detail and a couple of coats of BF Black ice about a month ago.

Polished bliss kindly commented on twitter that the gloss was 'unreal' i have to say gloss and durability are impressive. Pedestrians stopped and watched Helen's car pass on Towcester high street!



Hope it works for you too!
