Black box

It's a turtle wax package specifically for black cars...haven't had a chance to use it but wondering if anybody else has, and their results and suggestions for use?

It's a pretty good product. I'll bet that it works really well with older black paint. I like it.

Re: Black box

Works great,best part is the wax is black so no cleaning white residue out of the cracks or off the trim.Even the spray detailer is black.

Re: Black box

if you have tons of scratches that you can see (normal for a black car) you can have it buffed~ but caution on who does it and if you cut the paint or not~ you may not have to get that into it.

Re: Black box

The stages they want you to do is a waste of product.....use instant detailer (included in box),wax then use detailer again.......wha? Good marketing tool to get you to use everything in the box but not necessary. Wash it,wax it and save the detailer for another day its that simple so no PITA at all.

Did the whole process today following the instructions...the first step wasn't impressive...but I could have used it more liberally as that is what "fills" the scratches. After the carnuba wax and detail spray I was pleasantly surprised. A second application of detail spray really tool it up another notch. Total time was a very painful and meticulous 6 hours...including interior detail and a minor engine repair It is the best off the shelf result I have ever had in 15 years of owning black cars but it does not hide everything or fill in rock chips. For rock chips, they used to sell a wax pencil that worked well...anybody know where they sell those these days? Finally...if you have time and love to work on your mustangs appearance the cost benefit is well worth it! oh yeah, plenty of wax and detailer left, but the cleaning product was almost gone...still beats 130 bucks at the local auto spa though!

Re: Black box

FWIW - the product is really just an oily tinted filler... much in the same vein of the glazes many used car dealerships use to prep a car for sale so the paint defects are masked for a few washes. The effects are only temporary and as soon as its exposed to a few sunny days or a few washes you're right back where you started.

The best results are always achieved by CORRECTING the finish first, instead of just masking the imperfections under filler.
