    Can you convince me?

    Ok, my friends. Here we go....

    I have used and Loved HD Speed. Don't really care what it is called now, it just works. But, my bottle will be gone after my next use.

    Anyway...... Here is my situation/question:

    I baby my paint to the point that I need very minimal correction. Speed always fits the bill.

    I am curious about the BF one step.

    Here are my points I want opinions on:

    Will the BF provide the slickness of Speed?

    Is it as easy to remove? (I have read so, and I just want opinions).

    Also, I really need someone to convince me that I have to buy 32 ounces of the BF if it is THAT much better than Speed.

    I might have already pulled the trigger on a 16oz. bottle, but for the price of the quart......... Nope.

    Thoughts?
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Hummm...

    They are about the same.

    If you want to "spilt hairs"---speed just a tad glossier, Blackfire cuts tad better. But then...too close to call. Some days on some cars speed is better, other times BF...

    I can send you some BF One step in a container for you to mess around before spending any $$$ if you want.

    Re: Can you convince me?

    I'm in process of full correction with BF1, had some nasty marring from a previous product not sold by AG, it is very easy to remove after a section pass or leaving it on the panel anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour. I've never used speed so I cannot speak about it. I'll be posting pics tomorrow and the correction is absolutely amazing.

    I may not be able to convince you,
    but, IMO, the below link presents a
    rather convincing testimonial to its
    overall effectiveness that, just may,
    influence you enough to at least give
    it a shot.

    For example, you could take Tom
    up on his offer:

    Can you convince me?

    During the daytime, the panel in front looks like the rear panel, you would never know there was marring. Saying that, itís now VERY apparent (albeit embarrassing)! I saw this earlier today (during the daytime) when my wife and I were going to the movies, I was blown away at the difference, itís more dramatic in person!

    Could you please explain what you meant here. I would like to know what's going on in the picture.

    I was trying to show the cutting ability of BF1, the front door hasnít been worked on compared to the back door.

    Re: Can you convince me?

    maybe a dumb question, but for both BF and HD/3D Speed, is it ok to use them on the same car a couple or few times a year without taking too much clear coat?

    Yes, absolutely and not a dumb question.

    Paulie, I would take the offer from Tom and play with a sample. If I had some I would love to send you some.

    .

    Thanks. I love it, and wanted to keep using it each time, but was concerned it would abrade the paint too much over time. I know it's a very light abrasive, but I'm new to this. Appreciate it.
