Dont do it. I did mine in just over 3hrs. That was a wash, clay, wash, polish, and wax. Well worth the time spent. 1st time I used Griots and will keep using.

Do a search for Zaino. Some of us swear by it and won't use anything else. Expensive, time consuming on first application but lasts a long time and you will be amazed by the depth.

And if you use Zaino's new "All-In-one" formula you really only need one coat every 3 months or so. It's great for daily driver vehicles where you don't want to spend 8 hours doing the initial coats. It has a mild abrasive in it, so it cleans the paint as well. I have been using Zaino for years on my Corvettes, I then used the All-In-One on the V last month and it still looks great and is smooth. Great stuff...and easy to use. :thumbsup:

Man, I sound like a Zaino salesman...but I assure you, I am not. :)

Zaino proves itself when I park in a large lot at a commercial enterprise.
Return after a brief rain and your Zaino treated car will glisten with beads of water standing up vividly, reflected in the deep shine. It puts all other car finishes to shame. Each followup treatment only magnifies the previous results.

Are you looking for a polish wax or a sealant?

There are quite a few sealants around (synthetic) that I can vouch for. Most famous (and expensive one) is the Klasse Sealant Glaze (imported from Germany). Lasts up to 12 months. They also do All in One polish of course. Poorboys do a decent wheel sealant which makes cleaning wheels a lot easier.

Well I am looking for something to make my black V shine and not collect soooooo much dust so quickly. It is never ending with a black car I know but I used to use this Prestone w/Teflon polish (I know I know....Prestone!!??) on my lifted black Durango and it looked fantastic and I could literally rinse it with a garden hose. They don't make that same Prestone anymore so I am looking for something else similar. I am not afraid to spend the money but I am tired of buying products that don't work the way I want them to and figured who better to ask then my fellow V community

Thinner clear, thinner paint and barely any rust protection. I prefer orange peel over that.

Its a cost issue and GM is just to cheap to do it right.
