Maintaining Black

It really is a pain lol. I got a touch less wash today but I haven't had a chance to buy any quality micro fiber towels either. Do local stores offer them or is it cheap stuff?

You can get some decent ones from advanced auto parts... that is where I got one and it has a smooth side, and a micro fiber side. its quite nice, and plush.

old news. the way i keep my black VERY clean is i get a professional hand wash, polish, wax, touch up. buy a local shop once in a while. and don't go out in the rain. i think black is one of the best colors when its VERY clean. but its going to take money and time to keep it clean as you want it.

Oh that it? Easy. My Nigerian princess sends me a check each month. I had to give her my SSN and DOB so she could verify who I was though. I was glad to see that she took the necessary precautions security wise.
