    Time for wet ice over fire

    I just got my big memorial day order.

    Wet Ice over Fire Kit
    BF Rinseless
    BF Poly Spray
    BF Microfiber cleaner
    BF APC sample
    BF Auto Shampoo Sample
    5.5 CCS pads (2 greens, 1 yellow, red, blue, grey)
    backing plate
    bunch of MF towels and snappy clean for pads...

    When doing the wetice over fire, what is the minimum wait time between coats. I just don't have 8 hours to wait. Also what pads do yall recommend for the process?

    First step after claying will be to use TPnS to clean the paint with white pad.

    My understanding is 12 hours minimum to let first coat fully cure, as in 12-24 hours after applying sealant to apply a wax on top.

    I had to stay back late at the office, and wont be free for the next week or so... I ended up giving the car a quick rinseless bath, and one coat of BFWD tonight, I will do a waterless wash and add one coat of midnight sun tomorrow.

    It use to be 12 hours. But I remember Todd Helme talking about how since most Blackfire sealants and waxes use the same polymer technology they can be topped within an hour or two.
