    Black Z06 Corvette...

    Just knocked this puppy out earlier this week.
    Took me approximately about 10 hours to complete. This is for a three step exterior and full interior.

    Took the cues from Mike's detail of the Hennessy Corvette.

    10 Month Update - BLACKFIRE One Step - BLACK 700 HP Hennessy Corvette

    Product used:

    McKee's Tire and Rubber Rejuvenator.
    SONAX Wheel Cleaner Full Effect.
    Outer rim polished with Mother's Mag & Aluminum Polish.
    Wheel spokes polished with Collinite Metal Wax.
    McKee's extreme iron remover.
    Optimum car wash.
    Griots fine clay mitt.
    BlackFire One Step.
    Rupes 15 DA.
    Rupes Yellow pad.
    BlackFire Sealant.
    BlackFire Midnight Sun Ivory Carnauba Paste Wax.
    Dr Colorchip---standard black.

    Started the testing, using Blackfire one step with the Rupes white pads...What??? No bling!! Not impressed at all. Was shocked and disappointed.
    Tried speed with white pads---same thing!
    Tried the SONAX EX 04-06, was just OK...Customer wanted the one step process.
    Even tried Rupes yellow polish---Meh...

    What the Heck?? I feel myself beginning to fall down the rabbit hole trying 20 different products and getting confused!

    Stop...

    Think...

    Owner wants a One step...OK---check
    Mike did a BlackFire One Step on the Hennessy...OK---check

    Think...again.

    Start over and back up.
    BlackFire One Step and Rupes YELLOW pad. Bingo!!! The yellow pad was the key. The white pad before was just too soft and kind of dulled the paint and did not really take out much of the scratches.

    This leads tells me the corvette paint is on the softer side. I thought paint hardness was going to be right in the middle. WRONG...Wrong again!

    Geez...maybe oughta try somethin easier than detailing paint like drinking beer and eating pizza!

    OK...on to pictures. Hold on till I switch over to my phone from the computer.

    Re: Black Z06 Corvette...

    Oh....before forgetting.

    Customer asked for One step.

    I went ahead and gone around car 2 more times adding BlackFire Sealant. Let sealant dry overnight and removed the following morning.
    Went around one more time adding BlackFire Sun Ivory Carnauba Wax. "Wet-Ice over Fire".

    Complimentary of course.

    Customer was floored and very, very happy.

    And more importantly, I AM very, very happy!

    Awesome job, Tommy!
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.
