    Re: I hate black

    My truck looks dark black in shady areas but in the sun it looks faded. Not ever going to get it to look like the paint is about to drip off on to the driveway.

    Looks more like a mirror than a hood. Nice job!

    I think I just used too much and will go lighter next time.

    Re: I hate black

    Lots of good suggestions. I think I’m using too much of the spray product even though I do small sections at a time. Have to try spraying it on the towel instead of the paint and dial back the volume...

    That is really an incredible transformation. The hood shots show such a difference. That must have taken some serious hours to do. Great job!

    I hate black

    When I use sio2 spray it seems streaky no matter how much I wipe it. Same thing with Optimum opti clean. Toyotas black is metal flake and it has a faded look to it. No way to get that wet look no...

    Re: When to replace microfiber towels

    Gets kind of expensive to use them once and toss them. I would go through so many in a year without washing and reusing them

    Re: When to replace microfiber towels

    I got a package deal with Wolfgang sio2 sealant and some towels. Not sure what brand they are. Still going to order some more and retire my older towels. Some are fairly new

  10. Re: First Major Detail Planned this Weekend - Question about Wolfgang Products

    Sounds like you did everything right. Not buying a black truck was a good way to start. Never will I buy black again

    Re: When to replace microfiber towels

    Since I didn’t have any issues applying and drying the Sio2 in cooler temps I’m betting it was too hot. The product seemed to be smearing around rather than wiping dry. I guess being out of the sun...

    When to replace microfiber towels

    I have a bunch of towels that are years old. I just throw them in the wash together with a tide pod and dry them. While applying Sio2 spray I seem to have fuzz coming off and sticking to the paint. I...

    Re: 303 graphene longevity issue

    I had washed the truck and it seemed to bead well after it was cleaned. Rained again last night and truck was still clean. Again no water beading which is hard to figure because the first time it got...

    Re: 303 graphene longevity issue

    I just ordered some Wolfgang iso2 spray sealant to top the graphene. I just wanted to see if the durability of the graphene would live up to the claims.

    Thought it was worth a try. I usually use WDGPS with good results.

    Re: 303 graphene longevity issue

    I wondered if the fact it had some dust on it from where I park at work made a difference. After washing it the beading was restored to the hood and roof. It rained last night so I thought any dust...

    303 graphene longevity issue

    I used this on a black Toyota Tundra. Did a couple panels at a time to not let it dry too long but did wait for it to haze over. First time it rained the beading and water shedding was incredible and...
  18. Re: BlackFire One Step or Pinnacle for dark colored car

    I used Blackfire one step for the first time today on a new black truck. Had issues with it slinging around but that’s probably me. It does look good but doesn’t feel as slick as other products I’ve...

    I was planning to just use a light pad. It mostly needs a cleaning and sealing, paint looks fine. I don’t feel like doing a two step process in one day. Thanks.

    BLACKFIRE One Step

    Would this be a good choice for cleaning and sealing new black paint? Im also considering Pinnacle jeweling wax but would prefer a polymer base on the paint. Then it would be topped with Pinnacle...
