Make black look wet

What is a wax that can give a black Mustang the look that it's still wet. I can't find anything that works.

Re: Make black look wet

yea its not as simple as just a given wax, the base itself (paint) has to be in great condition so I recommend getting the paint there, all the swirl marks gone all that stuff then with a good base you can work on that and get a great shine

Re: Make black look wet

Clay bars work magic! the day I got my red stang I washed it and then used turtle wax ICE clay bar kit. On my red it took the dark spots out where durt had built up, so now my car is evenly shiny

Re: Make black look wet

you should wash with dawn detergent, clay bar the car, wash again, then fully dry then you can do wax etc (which you will need to do as there is no protection on the car at this point)
