Default Best product for black paint

I gave turtle wax Black Box a try... and its simply amazing what it did for my car.

Turtle Wax Black Box

Seriously, this stuff is good. My car looks better then it has in over 5 years. If you own anything that is painted black TRY this. You will be glad you did!

It is great stuff! Well worth the money IMO.

however it will not get out more serious scratches and paint damage from the sun. It mainly deals with those stubern swirl marks from washing the car. Really works well.

And another cool thing about it, is because its black when your done and have gotten all the wax off the car.. Its much harder to see wax you cant get to in the trim. Because its not white and stands out like a soar thumb

Yes...very good stuff. The Conquest I had was black and it had faded terribly, no buffing, waxing, or anything could make it black again...nor stay darker at all.

Waxed it with this and it looked a lot better and was not grey, but actually black...haha.

Stayed that way for about two months before it needed a second coat.

Haven't tried it on the SRT yet, though...may just do that.

yea the only problem with this is that it doesnt actually repair the clear coat from those swirl marks and light scratches. Its seems to me its only a glaze that only covers up stuff. The product is black because its filling in those imperfections and eventually will fade off an show the imperfections. The proper way to go about this is.....Clay bar, compound, Polish, real wax. A glaze is what u get when u pay $75 for a full detail at a detail shop.

Waste of time and money to use this stuff. All it does is temporarily fill in imperfections, only to eventually wash away (in a couple months time). As SRiceaTer4 mentioned, invest the money in proper detailing products/equipment and your car will look great all the time.

Depends how bad the paint is...the conquest of mine...you'd full detail it, buff it, etc...it'd only last a few weeks. This stuff made it look black for a few months...lol

That paint was bad, though.

Full polish and sealant and the car will be looking good for as long as your washing/drying habits allow. Polish permanently removes defects, especially when using a dual-action polisher and appropriate pads/compounds. Black box only fills them in temporarily.

You need 3M UltraFina 3000. It is expensive but damn good polish. This is what I use on my car take a look at it in the showoff section.

1. Clay-Bar
2. Compound - Optimum II
3. Polish - Ultrafina 3000 3M (polish buffing pad)
4. Glaze/Sealant - Optimum Poli Seal
5. Wax Micro Wax - Optimum Spray wax or paste Meguiars etc... I like Optimum!

for the money the turtle black box worked wonders beats the hell out of spending a few days polishing.
