Blackfire Midnight sun on Porsche 997 Carrera 4S

The plan was to machine polish my Guards red C4S, but things conspired against me today as happens sometimes. So I scaled back my ambitions and decided to skip that stage this time.

Interestingly, after snow foam, a 2 bucket wash, paint decontamination and clay, I was pleasantly surprised. It could definitely do with some paint correction, but it wasn't as bad as expected.

A coat of Blckfire GEP and it was looking pretty good indeed! At which point, in excitement (perhaps), I also forgot to put a coat of AFPP and went straight to putting on a coat of Blackfire Midnight sun. An hour or so later I applied a second coat of MS.

Although I failed spectacularly (twice) today, the results are still very impressive! It actually looks better in the flesh than in the photos. I think it's impossible to get bad results with BF products.

Looking forward to your comments.

I do like the polymer spray, but I think that I'll just top this up using the midnight sun spray.

I did like the wet diamond spray over Afpp on my old car though.

Thanks! It's in really good shape with only 2 owners and 45k on the clock.
But the best thing is the spec, which includes the X51 power kit, sports chassis and lsd, sports chrono, sports dynamic seats, carbon fibre interior kit.. The list goes on and on.

MAD as a sack of cats!

Cheers! The red looks much better now, it looked orangey when I first picked it up.

This is another cool thing:
Part of the X51 kit is a real carbon fibre air filter box , and the interior has a factory fitted carbon fibre interior kit.
