    1. Excellent correction
    2. Incredibly long buffing cycle
    3. Super easy wipe-off
    4. Show car results
    5. Works with anything, even the human hand



    How does the Blackfire One Step compare to meguiars d166 polishing wax? Iíve used HD Speed several times and really like it. Iíve been hearing some good stuff about the D166 and now the Blackfire. Iím sure both are great, but how do they compare? Thanks

    Just want to let you know that I will be polishing out a crazy purple Hellcat soon once I get over this nasty cold I have.

    Plan is to use the whole Blackfire line from start to end just because I can.

    1. Blackfire Compound
    2. Blackfire polish
    3. Blackfire sealant
    4. Topped off with BLACKFIRE Midnight Sun Ivory Carnauba Paste. (Wet Ice over Fire)

    Hope this will give this purple Hell kitty some purple punch!

    Hi Tom,

    I'm already looking forward to your write-up and the before and after pictures.

    I have used all three and I think all are top notch products. I've used 3D HD Speed and BLACKFIRE One Step on black paint and both product were very impressive.

    I've only used the Meguiar's D166 Polishing Wax on clearcoated red paint and it too looked great. The real test is always black paint so I'll have to re-visit the D166 sometime in the future.

    I'd have to say though, for doing one-step correction work and leaving the paint sealed, you couldn't go wrong with any of these three products.



  4. Thanks TMQ, Maxreed241 thanked for this post

    I'm happy to say, each time I've used it, it has been in an air-conditioned garage.

    I started to use it outside on a black 1969 Roadrunner but then was able to move the car inside and finish the job.

    Also not yet. I have taught our recent boat detailing class but in the class I show using a marine grade cleaner/wax for buffing out boats to remove oxidation. Generally speaking, marine products for THICK gel-coat will be a LOT more aggressive than anything formulated for THIN scratch-sensitive clearcoat paint systems.


    My guess is the BLACKFIRE One Step would be GREAT for painted boats and for NEW gel-coat boats that DON'T have deep oxidation.


    Since it was brought up.... here's the link to the last boat class, lots of pictures showing what a person gets to do when they attend our boat class. Next year's class is Feb 9th and 10th and people can sign-up now for it.

    ( What about Menzerna FG400
    Menzerna FG400 is a great compound and it will work great on boats DEPENDING upon what you're trying to do. It all comes down to,

    1. The condition of the gel-coat
    2. The pad you're using.
    3. The tool you're using.
    4. Technique



    And in the above order.



    What are you working on?

    Re: Review: BLACKFIRE One-Step Cleaner/Wax by Mike Phillips

    Well I tried out my 2oz sample of Blackfire One Step and was amazed. Having used HD Speed for years and loving that product, this one is better IMO. Super easy to apply, no dusting, better cut than Speed and the wipe off is incredibly easy. I suspect the longevity will be better as well but will report on that later as Speed tends to be on the short side in that department. My daughter's 2007 Elantra came out beautiful. Sorry no pictures. Cleaning the pads was a breeze too.
