blackwax

I have never heard of that stuff, but my one friend uses the black turtle wax on his car. I am not a big fan of turtle wax but it comes out pretty nice on his jetta. Just wish they made it for my Sunrise red clearcoat metallic car....lol...aka.....pink.

I tend to use natural paste waxes instead of liquid synthetic waxes most of the time. That said, I use Pinnacle Soveran wax, which isn't cheap.... but is the best looking Carnuba wax I've tried. An 8 oz can usually lasts me about 15 to 18 waxes and you don't need to apply much. The downside is that as it is a TRUE carnuba wax with natural ingredients, it only lasts on my daily driver about 2 to 3 months. But on my red paint it is amazing. It has a nice deep, wet shine that isn't hazy or difficult to use.

There are a number of products on the market that market to specific color paints, such as Zymol's Carbon for dark cars and Zymol's Creme for light colored cars, most are bunk. The main difference is that waxes that have a higher content of carnuba tend to lead to a deeper look in your paint. An expensive wax with lots of Carnuba may not leave one as satisified on a white or silver car as they would on blue or black car. While I use "the good stuff" on my TBird most of the time, I do use synthetic waxes in the winter months as they are more durable and offer more protection here in the northeast.

As for the brand in question, I've never used it or heard of it and it could be great. But I tend to be a bit skeptical on waxes that are color cordinated and detailing products that offer quick cures. While Pinnacle does say Soveran is great on darker colored cars, it is only because of the high content of carnuba, not because it was "specially formulated for black cars" or something to that effect.

However, it all goes down to personal taste and what kind of time you can invest in detailing your car!

Everyone should try Zaino. I got some of that stuff and its awesome. I used just about every type of wax before and the water would stop beading up after like 2-3 weeks. I put that Zaino on my car and WOW!!! over 3 months ago and you can hose down my car and then wait all of about 1 min and all the water will have ran off the car. The only problem is its a PITA to wash it cuz all the water keeps running off. But still after 3 months and after you wash the car, it ends up looking like you just waxed it.

BTW - I have a Black car.

One coat of zaino which I screwed up while applying

Zaino owns. I only have like 4 coats on it now, but hot diznammies, :) Works good when you look in your car door to check out the piece of *** that just walked by you and you don't want your girlfriend to notice you are looking, haha

Yah, I think it is starting to get too obvious when I turn around and stare at my door tho for 20 seconds or so. Maybe I should just wear some mirror sunglasses so people can't see where I am looking

i do the same thing in my moonlight blue bird......i use Meguire's GOLD Glass wax.....easy to apply and remove and looks wonderful. The pic is a few weeks after applying it, and the car is fairly dirty but that doesn't stop people from coming up to me when i'm working on it and saying "wow,....what kind of wax do you use?" lol. One lady stopped by in a suburu and got out the car and asked me about it,......i gave her my empty box so she'd know what it was and sent her away like santa giving a little girl that doll she's always wanted. hah. At $10 for liquid and $15 for paste, both readily available almost anywhere...i couldn't ask for more.
