    Also -

    I'll do my best to help out....


    And - you can hand apply the polish. Machine application will do a better job of removing any swirls but HAND application will get the job done.

    This will work fine. Simply hand apply like you were hand applying a wax only work small sections at a time, about the size of a 16" by 16" microfiber towel. After you apply, gently wipe off and then move onto a new section. Overlap a little into the previous section.

    I'll try to make a short video tomorrow showing how to hand apply polish.

    Because you're going to polish the paint you could - but if it were me - I'd probably use dish washing soap.

    Then hand polish or machine polish

    Then use the BLACKFIRE Paint Prep

    Then install the coating

    By the way,

    We're going to show this process to the hood of a black Cadillac TOMORROW during our LIVE Detailing Class at 3:00pm Eastern Time.

    Feel free to drive over and watch in-person.
