    Turtle Wax Black Box

    Hey guys, I did the whole treatment of Turtle Wax Black Box today, wow did that take forever. Yes, I know that a black car really doesn't require special waxes or cleaners, but I wanted to try something other than the stuff that leaves white residue everywhere. Last year I used Meguiars ultimate compound and High Tech wax and I was happy with it. I do recommend you use gloves with the Turtel wax, also, I guess I applied too much wax, because it took forever to take it all off, even with a buffer. I applied the wax with the buffer because I was getting tired, but the amount of time it took to wipe it all off made me even more exhausted. Overall, I was happy with the job it did, swirl marks and minor blemishes went away and it looks great now. I think in the fall I'll just do the wax part. And I'm never buying a black car again, especially in the Canadian climate.

    I have to use it on my front fascia from all the high speed sandblasting. It is nowhere near as shiney as the Zaino I use on the rest of the car, though. It is visibly less reflective, even in photos.

    IMHO, I only use Ardex Nano Sealer and Wizards Shine Masters polish and sealer on my cars. No swirls and the finish looks like it just came off the showroom floor !!! I use a micro cloth and apply and remove all in one step. Done. Wizards

    Hey with Zaino...what stuff do you guys usually use from them? I mean just some wash and polish? or did you guys buy that big bundle that was 84$...I want to try it out but I don't know whats the best to buy from them, I really just don't want to buy a bunch of stuff from them that I'm not going to use.

    You wouldn't think their car wash would make a difference, but it totally does.

    Z-7 car wash, Z-18 Clay Bar, Z-2 Polish, and Z-6 clear spray (pop!) are the bare essentials. I think they have a kit with that stuff in it. I didn't buy enough on my first time I tried it and wish I had because the stuff is the shit.

    I've read this stuff isn't good for the paint/clear coat. Essentially you are trying to dye or add pigment to a clear coat if I'm not mistaken.
