    HD Speed - Poorboys Black Hole - Collinite 845

    One of my good friends owns a black `07 Mustang GT convertible that is used for a summer fun & sun car. He is far from an "Autopian," and the car is a dull and lifeless swirled out mess. He`s currently in Mexico on vacation with his family, so I offered to freshen up his car for him while he was gone to improve the appearance and provide some protection.

    So far I`ve completed a decon wash, clay, cleaned and protected the wheels and fabric top, and buffed out the entire car with HD Speed using my BOSS G15 w/BOSS orange correcting pads. It turned out really nice and is a huge improvement (sorry, I`m at work and can`t upload pictures) over where I started. I had initially intended on just doing a one-step and calling it good, but have decided that I`m going to apply one coat of Collinite 845 to give him a little more protection to get through the balance of the summer.

    Which leads me to my question... I`ve got a practically full bottle of Poorboys Black Hole just sitting in my detailing cabinet. I could put a coat of Black Hole on top of the Speed, and then top it all off with some 845. Good idea or waste of time? What say you? In hindsight I probably should have just polished instead of using an AIO, but I had never used Speed before and wanted to give it a try. It`s an impressive product and was really easy to use.

    Also, I know HD Poxy would be a great topper choice for Speed, but I don`t have any Poxy so Collinite 845 is going to be my topper of choice. So... Black Hole or no?

    When I used HD Speed on my black daily driver - i noticed it did a good amount of filling - so in my opinion the black hole would sort of be irrelevant.

    Do one panel and see if it makes a difference. If not - go w the 845 and call it a day!

    Skip the Black Hole and just apply the 845.

    FWIW, I`ve used (though not on a black car) 845 over HD Speed and it looks fantastic.

    I would. From my experience, bh adds a certain *something* to the look.

    Thanks all for the advice. I decided to take dschribs and ronkh`s guidance and give it a try.

    I applied BH to the horizontal panels (hood, deck lid and rear spoiler) and left the vertical panels alone. Couldn`t really tell a significant difference but it is so easy to use. Hopefully it will help to fill some of the remaining swirl marks.

    PRND[S] is also right... 845 over HD Speed looks terrific!

    Not a great photo, but one shot of my results:



    Thanks again all for the replies.

    How did all those sweet Rivieras feel about being background props for a Mustang photo shoot?
