Turtlewax Black Box

Used this kit on my GXP. Was needing to wax it so I went a step further and used something more than just wax.
Four things I will tell ya about this kit:
1) Its for older vehicles since its got tinted/colored black compound and wax.
2) Its messy, like trying to shoepolish your car messy.
3) Its time consuming, more so than usual.
4) Its awesome once finished, like most other products along these lines.





One thing I was concerned since this product is tinted/colored is with the metalics in the paint. Well, it pops!
I took two close ups of the hood and the fender, both same spot in two different directions:

Turtlewax wax doesnt last as long as a few other brands by what Ive seen over the years but it was better than Mothers. Ive used Mothers a couple of times on other vehicles and its like a month later it doesnt even bead anymore when it gets wet lol.
