This kit from BLACKFIRE represents the final result of a fifteen year quest for the ultimate shine; a shine described in-house as wet ice over fire. What does this description really mean? In our opinion, it translates to a vibrant, laser sharp looking shine rippling with energy and shimmering liquidity. A finish that is guaranteed to turn heads and that will make you smile every time you look at your car. In a word, it is stunning. The foundation stone of the wet ice over fire shine is an initial application of BLACKFIRE Paint Cleaner, which masks minor paint defects (such as wash marring and fine swirl marks) and dramatically enhances surface gloss in order to create the illusion that the paint is dripping wet. Next to be applied is a basecoat of durable synthetic protection in the form of BLACKFIRE Paint Sealant, which is a paint-friendly, water-based sealant formulated with the latest generation of crystal super-polymers. This locks in the finish created by BLACKFIRE Paint Cleaner and produces an icy looking, laser-sharp shine that serves as a basecoat for subsequent layers of protection.
The fiery component of the wet ice over fire shine is then provided by multiple coats of BLACKFIRE Midnight Sun Ivory Carnauba Paste Wax. Packed full of high quality Brazilian No.1 carnauba, this uniquely engineered wax is fortified with gloss enhancing oils and crystal super-polymers and adds rippling liquidity and intense depth to the finish. Incredibly easy to apply and buff off, it delivers a jaw dropping finish characterised by superb reflectivity, excellent flake pop and a liquid-like level of glossiness that is almost surreal. Maintenance of the wet ice over fire shine is easily performed using BLACKFIRE Carnauba Spray Wax. This spray wax contains the same high quality carnauba wax and crystal super-polymers used in the rest of the system and can be used repeatedly to enhance gloss and extend protection without any fear of causing hazing or streaking. In fact, regular use is recommended, as it will greatly enhance surface slickness, making washing and drying even easier and prolonging the life of the underlying protective sealant and wax layers indefinitely.
Step 1 – BLACKFIRE Paint Cleaner
BLACKFIRE Paint Cleaner should be applied to freshly clayed paint using the supplied Meguiar's Even Coat Microfiber Applicator Pad. Only 3-4 pea-sized drops of product are required per panel and these should be wiped in as thinly and evenly as possible using light downward pressure. The resulting film should be buffed off immediately using the supplied PB Super Buffing Towel.
Step 2 – BLACKFIRE Paint Sealant
BLACKFIRE Paint Sealant should be applied to freshly polished paint using one of the supplied BLACKFIRE Foam Applicator Pads. Only 2-3 pea-sized drops of product are required per panel and these should be applied as thinly and evenly as possible to produce a film that should then be allowed to cure for up to 15 minutes. Once hazed over, this film should then be buffed off carefully using one of the supplied PB Deluxe Buffing Towels.
Step 3 – BLACKFIRE Midnight Sun Ivory Carnauba Paste Wax
BLACKFIRE Midnight Sun Ivory Carnauba Paste Wax should be applied to three to four panels at a time and as thinly and evenly as possible using one of the supplied BLACKFIRE Foam Applicator Pads. The resulting film should then be buffed off within 5-10 minutes of application using one of the supplied PB Deluxe Buffing Towels; there is absolutely no need to allow the film to dry fully before it is removed (if you do, you will find that is more difficult to remove).
Step 4 – BLACKFIRE Carnauba Spray Wax
Lightly mist BLACKFIRE Carnauba Spray Wax over a single panel at a time, and immediately wipe the panel down to spread a thin, even film of product using the supplied PB Luxury Buffing Towel. Then refold your towel, and buff the panel down carefully to fully remove the film and reveal an intense streak-free shine.
Care instructions for applicators and towels
(i) wash after each use in a washing machine at a low temperature (40°C) using a non-biological liquid detergent (avoid soap powders and detergents containing bleach or fabric softeners); (ii) allow to dry naturally on a line or tumble dry on a cool heat setting (avoid radiators and other sources of high heat), and; (iii) store in a dry, dust-free environment while not in use (lidded plastic storage boxes are ideal in this respect).
