Waxing my Black Sand Pearl Taco

Shopping around the auto parts store & found a Turtle Wax Product called Black Box. Apparently designed specificly for black painted vehicles. Anyone have an opinion one way or the other for the first wax job for my 2010??

im not positive, but it sounds like it may be more of a scratch filler. kinda like shoe polish. they make color specific wax compounds for filling in scratches and swirls, its just a temp. fix.

One of my friends used it on his early 90's mustang. He said it did great. I never saw it in person (he sold it shortly after.) The pictured looked good tough.

i used it on my black miata and it is nice to have the black wax instead of white because you don't have to worry about seeing all the white spots on the plastic, seals and other places you didn't mean to get the wax...

I bought that stuff years ago for my black car. Don't buy it. Its garbage, it doesnt fill in swirls nor does it give a good coat. If you want a good wax for black vehicles, get the zymbol ebony wax. Works well and worth the price.

Gold Class wax is a great product. Used it all the time on my black 1997 Taco. If you want black paint to look like glass, you need to get an orbital polisher. Porter Cable 7424XP is the way to go. It is a kinda pricey investment at around $100. However, it will make keeping yours or any vechile looking its best. You will need to POLISH a few times a year to really keep it puf. No bullshit. Black is the best color when done right, however it is a cross to bear to keep it so.

A polisher will make your life very easy and speed up your detailing time.

No dice on the Black box. Could'nt find it. I've never buffed a vehicle before, is it difficult? What are the steps of using a buffer?

Very good post and right on the money. The $100 will get you the polisher add another $150 for pads, backing plate, polishes and a decent sealant or wax.

Think of Gold Class as a top choice grade C wax. If you decide to move up to a grade B or A it will cost you more but the protection will last longer and you will be able to see a difference in the depth and clarity of the shine.

Before doing a long post take a few hours and look at the Autogeek and Autopia forums. Both have a lot of useful information by people that OCD on car detailing.

If you still have questions shoot me a PM I will be happy to answer them.

Basically, the buffer does the same job as your arm. Just better and faster. There is no risk to your paint at all.

Basically, after you have wash and clayed your truck you apply some polish (get a decent one here as the money is well spent). If you have alot of swirlies and shit you will need an agressive polish as well as an agressive pad. After you then go over it with a finishing polish on a finish pad. If you do this like once a month the finishing polish is all you need. Then wax and enjoy. Only use the agressive polish/pad combo when you have some bad swirls or damage to the clearcoat. No need to remove clear if you do not need to.

Any questions, hit me up.
