    Ok, I bought into the hype........

    I went out and got a tube of Meguiar's Black Wax. It is drying on the car in the garage as I type this. First impressions are that it sure smells purty!! Seems to go on really nice. I will update when I wipe her off as to the easy of removal. I will post pics tomorrow when I get it out in the sun so we can see if there is a difference between this and normal wax... Got it at Wal-Mart for $9.47 a tube. I also picked up the White for the wife's car. It is suppose to be a AIO (All In One) but I had a lot of surface scratch defects and RIDs, so I hit her with a quick M205 polishing.

    PICS IN POST #4 BELOW!!

    That black wax is great. Try the black spray detailer also very good. I had 3 black cars at the same time for over 3 years I got good at doing blacks cars lol. Still have one too many.

    I have always used Meguiars and LOVE THIS STUFF!!

    It came off easier than anything I have ever used. The results are awesome!

    I highly recommend this to anyone!

    Adams polish all the way. All of that wax u can get at auto zone/Walmart is crap. None of it is pH balanced. None of actually conditions the paint U can't get that on any other surface. All of those company use grade c or d level clay bars. Adams is 150% better product in every category. Get the two bucket wash n wax kit n the great white dry towel. One towel will dry entire wet car. You won't be disappointed!! Ive used mothers and basically all other with not even half the shine of Adams. This stuff actually just wipes off also.

    Well kids, I have used Meguiars for over 30 years and have always been happy with the results. I have tried others but always come back. Others swear by Zaino, Adams, etc.....

    To each their own. Whatever floats your boat.

    Oh yeah.... rbzstsv- relax man. We see you are passionate about Adams. Take a pill or something.

    They now sell Adams at the auto zone 5 miles from me. It's all the same it's in how you use it.

    Re: Ok, I bought into the hype........

    Here are a few closer pics. Wanna give a shout out to my neighbor for using his "DUST BLOWER" to clean his sidewalk as I was taking pics and then come over to talk about the car!!

    I love how you can SEE the crap he blew on the driveway in the reflection in my bottom bumper!! You'll also notice the appearance mod in my bumper corner a little old lady gave me at Wal-Mart!!


    You can see the dust on the paint in the pics. That is actually dust particles and not defects. Funny it did't LOOK that dirty in person.......

    Its funny how certain members on here cannot take a different view. I can't seem to remember getting all excited or using an ! during posting but u can brush it off any way you like. The facts are the facts. Just because you have used a product line with GREAT success over the past 30 years doesn't change the "facts". Adams polishes uses higher quality materials throughout there product line( waxes, detail sprays,towels, and even vacuums) with extremely better customer service with 110% money back. Maybe you should be relaxing a bit lol. Can't we all just get along? Thumbs up
