Hi,

First proper post.

i have a Sapphire black E91 BMW, lovely condition. when i picked it up i saw two chips that had been touched in and were small.

being keen when i got home i cleaned, clayed and SRP'd then 476s'd it.

on indprcting after this i noticed ALOT more little chips showing up as white which i guessed was primer.

but i'm now thinking that they are clearcoat chips and there filled with SRP now.... then sealed with wax.

now i guess i did this wrong and didnt buff it enough with the SRP or.... either way this is my correcting plan.

Clean, dry
wipe with iproprosol (sp) alcohol watered down to about 10% to remove any wax and hopefully the SRP
then clay again with a mitt (might try it)
then Poor boys Black Hole
then my 476s wax....

does that sound okay? i'm open to any better products but the BH seems pretty good.

ideally i'd touch up the clear but there is ALOT of specks grain of sand or smaller so not really viable.

Cheers
Andy

Hi andy.

There is an issue with SRP and BlackHole which is causing 'white' being there. These are the accumulated dried fillers in each of the two products.

Your method for removing them is sound.

So what are your alternatives:

A glaze, similar to Blackhole which has no Fillers in it - Britemax Black Max Glaze (Ash on this forum rates this highly)

A 'colour charged' wax which can fill in the chips and scratches with black wax and creates a deep gloss. - plenty of these waxes about from different manufacturers..

Britemax Black Max Glaze :D is very good if your looking for a non filler glaze/polish and ideal on dark colours.

Hi guys,
Yep sounds like my exact problem!
I'll try that polish then, so your saying ovoid products with fillers?
Can I still use you 476 wax on top or find a new wax?

Cheers guys!

Thinking about detail sprays too, apparently anti static ones help fend off the dust and pollen for a bit longer?

476 is fine to put over the top as is any wax.

Big lover of Sonax BSD for that, as needed top up or event clean up :)

Cheers, seems a good wax for me so far!

I'll pick some of that detail spray up, eurocarparts has it for £8 at the minute if you use the code weekend57
Worth a go at that price :)

Ideal!
If it's a rare occasion when they don't have a sale, put it in your basket and come off the page, they send you an email offering you money off to complete you order!

Going to try the sonax wheel cleaner too I think!

Got the brite max stuff arriving this week :)
Also got a litre of IPA coming too, it's 99% so how much should I dilute it down to?
Searching shows as low as 5-10% does that seem right for removing the collinite wax and the SRP under that filling the voids?
I was thinking that to start fresh, then clay to get it super clean,

Or shall I do it the other way around, clay then IPA?

Cheers
Andy

So, did this a while ago but didn't update.

i cleaned the car with Megs cleaner (the bright yellow one) then clay barred, then IPA wiped at a 5% IPA and 95%water mix.

here is the before of the marks, this is after IPAing them, still white.... either it wasn't coming out or thats primer i'm seeing? and when i brought the car they were well covered up ? either way


this is before

and this is after about 5 hand coats on the area, the rest of the car got 2 full coats

Image

as you can see there IS an improvement. good product IMO,

and then ready for Collinte wax
