Black paint

Okay so anyone that has a black stang knows the trouble of keeping dust off. They look so sexy when clean tho. My question to you guys is what wax do you use on black paint I want to get a nice gloss finish like it did when I got from the factory. Is there any special wax for black cars?

Swiffer dusters do a good job of keeping the dust off between detailing.

Zaino excellent product...and have used many times. Currently I use Croftgate Quick n Slick does a great job repelling dust and great shine and protection. I have not tried the new black or white waxes yet..but would love to hear how those are working...I think Meg's is putting those out.

Gotta say the black wax is awesome if you follow it up with a good compound wax with a sealant a simple wipe down between detailing will work wonders. I did mine before mustang week and the whole time I was there all I had to do was simply spray it off and dry and BAM shines like a new penny. Lol

Great to know....my commitment to Croftgate is primarily because it is waterless and can detail anywhere anytime.....with amazing results. While at the show what were you using to spray off the car? I will have to do some testing with the black and white waxes and see how they do....plus I need to add more to my collection of products as I always remain curious on other products.

I did the maguires clay bar followed by the black wax followed by a new carbanna wax maguires put out cant remember the name. At the show just washed it off at the car was with the pressure washer. I did the drying in sections using a terry cloth rag to soak the water the a microfiber towel to do the finish drying. They maybe some pics on my profile from the show.

Gotcha....just my two cents....but stay away from terry cloth and stick only with quality MF towels...a good quality MF will soak up water better and not induce any micro marring. Thanks for update on the black wax....appreciate it.

No problem.... I couldn't get the micro towel to absorb so used the cloth to just soak it up I new better than to make any movements due to fine scratches that I didn't want

A quality MF towel does an awesome job on absorption. Look in Autogeek.net for various brands and sizes....remember price equals quality. Also never ever dry your MF. Towels in a heated dryer....I always clean my towels, rinse them and allow to air dry. If you wash in a machine use about half normal usage and never any softeners....good towels when taken care of will last a long time.
