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.




My favourite car in my favourite colour looking especially awesome even if you didn't get a full job done...

Late to the party but cracking result Matt - as you say, it's hard to go wrong with Blackfire. It works very well on most colours, with just minor variations in the final look depending on the exact combination you use. Great work!

Would you say that Leaving out afpp may have left a darker Finnish?

Possibly a little, although the bigger difference would be the balance of shine vs gloss; leaving out the AFPP gives a richer, glossier look, whereas leaving it gives more sharpness and reflectivity.

Ok, so I still haven't done any paint correction on the Guards red 997 and the paint has taken a lot of grief over the winter - however that's the downside of driving that bad boy everyday.

I've been flat out busy for about 6 weekends, but this weekend was perfect - weather was dry and cool, wife is away and the kids are glued to the PS4.

So after a good pre-soak, 2 bucket wash, decontam, clay, rinse and dry, I was expecting the paint to be clean. But it still had some tar left over. So I buzzed around every panel with BH cleansing fluid. I have to say, this is now a favourite product as it left every panel perfect. Even mark's that had resisted previous decontamination and claying were gone.

After that it was time for a coat of BF GEP, followed by a coat of AFPP. Things were looking up..

Left to cure for a few hours ( I know it should be longer, but we're talking tenths really..) I applied 2 coats of BF Midnight Sun.

So here you are folks - my exhausting 'wet ice over fire' version of my C4S. Hope you like it and believe me, the effort is worth it!







The damn thing is sat outside right now glowing in the sunset. Rolling artwork!

Thanks all. It's the products, not me though.

Not been overly impressed with the protection given by the c5 on the wheels. They were properly clean when I applied it, yet some brakedust and fallout has managed to grab onto the powder coat. Getting them painted gloss black soon.

Is there an alternative to c5 that anyone recommends and PB stock? Perhaps I should have put 2 coats of C5 on, rather than 1 as instructed?

Advice appreciated.
