    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.

    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.

    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.

    I use Fukken wax. The stuff works awesome. Works on the windows and interior even.

    i used turtle wax, i'm no expert waxer guy so i dont have much experience on removing wax, but it was definitely a pain to get off.
