    dday Any Rag Vehicle Washer

    The last couple weeks have been rough on my paint. Was at my buddies beach house and the sprinkler system went off on my car. As a result there were crazy water spots all over the hood and passenger side of the car. Then we had a hurricane the next weekend which covered my car in bits of leaves and dirt. So today I finally got a chance to give it a proper wash and polish.

    I tried two new products out today as well CG EZ Creme Glaze and Blackfire Wet Diamond. The CG EZ Creme Glaze is incredible stuff. I can't think or another product that's as easy to remove as this and it leaves a crazy slickness to the paint. The Blackfire Wet Diamond was also very easy to use. I love the look, so now it will just be a matter of durability to make a final judgement

    Beautiful work on an absolutely beautiful metallic blue Bimmer ! I love that color !

    What machine/s did you use ?

    Hard to not like EZ Creme Glaze and Blackfire Wet Diamond Paint Finish Protection - they both are great products.

    Used a Porter Cable 7424XP. I wish I could have snapped some more after pics but my camera ran out of batteries. The metallic really pops in the sun now. The EZ Creme Glaze really exceeded my expectations, and that doesn't happen too often.

    The uber wool wash mitt is also excellent. While I had some gnarly water spots to take care of the car was still swirl free and I've washed it a few times since the last polish.

    Thanks Phil. Put the new pads I picked up from you to good use today. The Menzerna PO203S is an amazing product, I picked it up after you used it in one of your detail writeups. It's crazy easy to use and finishes down amazingly well.
