Best wax for black sand pearls?

What's your opinion on the best wax to use on a black sand pearl taco? Not really worrying about the price. Looking for quality and how well the wax works.

Okay. I'll look into that. Do you use anything special to put it on or just use a rag to wipe it on?

I just use two micro fiber rags. 1 for applying the wax and 1 for buffing it.

Are you looking for durability or looks? If you want durability look into Blackfire wet diamond sealant. If your going for looks, dodo juice makes some good caranuba paste waxes.

After you are done waxing check out Meguiar's ultimate wash & wax and Ultimate quick wax . Using those products keeps my vehicles nice . I hand wax at most every other leap year .

I also use Kit Carnauba regularly and it seems to do the job nicely. For the best water beading, Meguiar's NXT is the best that I've tried though. I use microfiber towels to apply the wax and remove the wax also.

Meguiars Gold Carnauba is sex...

http://www.autogeek.net/mg7016.html
http://www.autogeek.net/meguiars-gol...paste-wax.html

Zymol also turned out to be very good as was expected. But I think I prefered the Meguiars with the paste being better IMO than the liquid version.

check out zaino product line. Honestly the BEST polish system you can buy. Its pricey and if you do it right it can be a lot of work, but its by far one of the best. Do the research if you don't believe me. Anything you buy in walmart, part stores is all crap.

NXT is garbage. That stuff won't last through a carwash.
