    First - Send me your shipping address and I'll send you some of the Speed Master Foam Block Coating Applicators for free. I'm assuming and hoping you live in the lower 48 states otherwise shipping becomes a hassle - at least for me.


    Second - When I wrote this review, the BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Coating "Black Edition" was paired with the MicroSuede Cloth and the BLACKFIRE Coating Applicator like I shared in this picture.

    Fold a MicroSuede Cloth around a BLACKFIRE Coating Applicator.






    Not only does Autogeek want me to show these items with the coating "because" that's how they are sold on the AG site - BUT the black and red foam block coating saver applicator I now like, use and recommend was not yet available.

    At least not to me via Autogeek inventory.

    So no harm intended, I shared what I was responsible for sharing and also what was available.

    Make sense?

    So e-mail me your shipping address, I hope you live in one of the lower 48 states and I'll get them shipped out today.

    Re: Review & How-To: BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Paint Coating Black Edition

    Just wanted to add my experience with the Blackfire Pro Ceramic Black Edition.

    I have coated two vehicles with it. The first was a 2011 Silver Grey BMW M3. The second was a 2019 Ram 2500 Mega cab, which had metallic black paint.

    The M3 was coated in mid spring with ambient air temperatures in the upper 60's and low humidity. The Ram was coated earlier this week with ambient air temps in the upper 70's and very high humidity. Not only was the application more time consuming and "difficult" due to the black paint and the size of the vehicle, I am convinced that the higher air temp and significantly higher humidity effected the "flash" or set up time of the coating.

    With the M3, I was able to do at least 1 full panel at a time and wait for the "sweating", which was very visible. While with the Ram, I was forced to reduce my application to 1/3 panels due to the coating flashing within 90-120 seconds. Because of such a BIG swing in application conditions, I ended up with several "high spots" on the first two panels of the Ram. I was able to remove them with Blackfire One Step, as Mike had mentioned in one of his previous articles.

    Reason for the post was just to make everyone aware that the environmental conditions will (in my experience) effect how the application of the coating goes. This seems to be especially true with the Blackfire Pro Ceramic Black Edition.

    For reference, both vehicles were coated in a semi-climate controlled garage but, the exhaust fan and single window unit AC hadn't been able to keep up with the high temps and high levels of humidity outside.

    For now, I don't have any overall pictures of the Ram but, here is a door panel after coating. The spots are metallic flake.
