    One step recommendation for a newbie?

    I just bought a Griot G9 and want to start learning how to machine polish my car - an Agate Gray Porsche. The car is in reasonably good shape, with some minor swirls and scratches, and at least in the short term, I still plan on having any major paint corrections done by a professional, and I would just do some refreshing in between. I was thinking that I would start with a one step polish and spray wax to keep things simple. Anyone have any suggestions on a polish and wax to start with?

    Stick with an AIO product. I suggested Blackfire One Step. You can top with any of Blackfire’s protection protection products if you wish.

    It’s super easy to use and the results may have you second thinking about getting a professional correction.


    HD Speed is also another great AIO product.

    100% Agreed.

    I have topped Blackfire OneStep with Blackfire BlackIce Hybrid Liquid Wax and use their Carnauba spray wax after a month or so to boost shine. It all works great and is really easy to use.

    The Blackfire One Step & BlackICE Hybrid Liquid Wax is an excellent combo and extremely easy to work with.

    Some good advice there.......either Blackfire AIO or 3D Speed......both super easy to use.....in my experience, the protection left behind by the Blackfire lasted longer than that left behind by Speed.....but the Speed was way slicker after application. You can top Speed with 3D Poxy...am sure you'll be happy with the results.
