About what exactly? Haha I've waxed my windows before, it works just like the rain-x spray does. I wasn't sure if this stuff did because of it being specifically for black paint.

The only bottles you need the sprayer for are the pre-wax cleaner and the spray detailer. I don't see a problem with it?

JUST A WORD OF WARNING:

This turtle black box product works pretty well, it's good stuff! I use it all the time on my black beauty, but... let me warn all the first timers to make sure you are wearing cheap ass ragged clothes when you are applying this product cause it will sh*t stain anything lighter than black that you are wearing.

What I'm really trying to say is keep your fantasy island outfits in the closet when you are working with this stuff.

So I used the kit today. It worked pretty well. Not just amazingly better than other carnauba waxes, but with the amount of materials you get for the price, it's worth it to me!

Looks like a load of fillers to me. Please post when the scratches come back. Don't forget to practice safe washing and drying techniques.

x2! I am sure it looks great, but a good swirl remover with a cutting attached to a dual action orbital polisher is the only way to get them out. You could buy the most expensive product, spend all day on the truck, and wash it wrong the first time and you're back to pre-detail conditions.

Like I said, it did good but obviously isn't anything like doing it professionally with an orbital polisher. But for people like me that don't have experience in using a electric buffer and would rather not run the risk of ruining the paint, it works well.

I didn't buy it to remove the scratches from my paint, I know it takes more work than simple fillers. But I needed new wax anyways and for the price it is worth it.

The bottles of wax will last a long time. I got lots left after atleast a dozen applications. I try and do it once a month for general waxing. In summer I may add a third layer of wax, something like maquirs old fashioned cornauba. I think the black pigments are a gimick. You can use it on a white vehicle and wont notice anything. But the basic principle, cleaner wax then a cornauba is what you want. And spray detailers are great, after every wash I use them to get rid of water marks.
