    I recently waxed mine with Meguiar's Black Wax Paste. It is, by far, the best wax I've ever used on a black vehicle. It's amazing.

    Chemical guys! That's some good stuff! I'm not big on detailing but I've used it the last few times and think its great! Only drawback it the price.

    Crystal Coat is their supposed 'multi-year' quartz based coating.
    Wet Diamond is a polymer spray.
    They have a wax for dark finishes, but I don't do wax. :D

    Yeah, I sent them an email asking for recommendations and they came back with 250$ worth of stiff.

    I ask for the working man's line up. Lol

    I used the Wolfgang fuzion wax. Never used it on a new car until now. But my truck is grey and when I was done, It Came out alright . I know that Grey is really not the color if you want shine.

    Paint protection is good, but think about the $$$$

    I bought a bottle online for about $20; it will last me years. I use this stuff each fall. It lasts a long time and does a great job protecting the paint.

    I wasn't bragging or anything.
    I just thought your "working man lineup" at $250 didn't seem out of line; depending on what you get.

    I'm just busting you.

    I just always look for the best deals. I have 3 cars and a bike to tend to. So i shop the shit out of stuff.

    For the past couple of years I have been using Meguiar's M21 Mirror Glaze Synthetic Sealant 2.0 on all the vehicles and bikes. I apply it twice a year and am satisfied with the results. I do it for paint protection, not for show, since my truck lives outside.
