HELP! I applied Blackfire Wet Diamond All Finish Paint Protection according to the directions exactly. When I tried to buff it off it left the paint hazy looking. What did I do wrong and how can I fix it??

Was the paint clean,
Try buffing it off
Or
dawn dish washing soap
Or 50/50 alcohol/water wipe off

Get the car clean and apply small amt of wet diamond, buff off and there are none better.

Thanks Glen, a little disappointed with my first attempt

you could certainly have a bad bottle or something...did you shake it for a full minute before using it?

write me for the full 1-2-3 step, not just one product - they all work together...but if the car is clean with no oil or dirt, blackfire wet diamond is a killer product..."Lipstic" just used it today with great results...

send me an email and I'll send you the how-to doc....and then you can call me and I'll walk you thru it...it's very easy

I did my Boxster using the 3 step process, clay, gloss enhancing polish and all finish paint protection and it came out amazing. There has to be either a bad bottle or something already on the finish wasn't properly cleaned before it was applied. I'm sure there's no harm done, you just need to strip off everything that's on the paint now and re-apply. Glen's how to should get you there.

Here's how it will look once you correct whatever caused your problems. :)

It's in amazing shape considering it's 10 years old but my '89 white 930 looked amazing after 15 years and 120,000 miles. I love the German finishes too, I was smiling as I buffed it out.

I have since experimented with the Blackfire products on my dd and the result was perfect.

The cause of my troubles could be the plastic or fiberglass fairing on my Harley. I will keep at it and let you guys know.

Thanks for all the input.

An issue like that is usually a result of applying it too heavily, but other factors can cause it as well.

Take a spray bottle filled with water (distilled if you have it), mist the paint with a little water and lightly buff with a soft MF towel. Quickly follow up with a second dry towel just before the panel is dry. Keep the sections small and swap in a new towel if the dry one becomes too wet. This should clear up any streaking or smearing you have on the paint.

Thanks Rasky, I'll give that a try
