The Black Box

The black box by turtle wax! 3 1/2 hours later =glass. Someone told me about the black box, so I tried it and was well worth it, the shine is just really deep. All that work just made me want to drive!!!!!!!

This is my first ever post, but I wanted to share my experience with the black box when I first got my camaro. I was initially impressed, but as I started learning and using different products it's no where near worth all the mess! My hands were stained black for days. I also heard that is has a lot of masking properties that only last for a few days and wear off quickly.

Best stuff to use hands down is Adam's glaze and americana combo! An absolute necessity for black cars!

Great shine but it doesn't last but a wash or two. I wore latex gloves when I used it to keep the hands clean.

Here's my results after using Chemical Guys blacklight for darker vehicles.





This stuff doesn't stain anything, holds up well and is reasonably priced.

Yes, you have to use gloves or your hands will turn black. My condo got flooded so not on my PC at home to download pics, but my garage has a few. Someone else told me about Adam's glaze, so might look into that, thanks!
