Wizard's Mist 'n Shine

If you have a dark colored car and have not tried this detailer yet, get some! Not bashing anything else, as I've probably used it... I know there's a "favorite" detail spray here on C5, but trust me... this stuff is mind blowingly good, and worth trying out. It works in direct sun without streaking and adds noticible shine and depth...especially black.

Why dark colors?

It works on any color, but on darker colors is where you really notice this is better stuff than most other quick detailers, especially when using it in the sun. It doesn't streak at all, even if you accidently allow it to dry on the surface...and adds a depth/darkness to the paint... and there is no silicone in it either. A friend told me about it and I was skeptical, as I've tried just about everything (as I'm sure you have too) but found that this is indeed better than anything else I've used. It also adds a slickness to the finish and makes it feel smoother than other detail sprays I've compared it against. I don't hear too much chatter about it, and figured I'd pass the word as it's the best stuff I've found yet.

Just to be clear... I'm not a dealer or affiliated with it in any way, just found that it works really well and figured I'd share. I actually bought my gallon on ebay, but here's a link to the company's site.

Hmm

'Hides swirls '
'Contains no wax solvents or silicone '

I generally make it a habit not to buy products from companies who mislabel or can't even describe their own product (ahem..Zaino) but I might still give this a try at some point.

I don't know about mislabeling, all I know is that it really works really well for a quick detailer. If it didn't I wouldn't recommend it. Give it a try, if you don't like it I'll buy it from you!

Joey, not trying to speak for Matt or to sound confrontational here but many of us (in the detailing section of the forum) prefer to fix the problem instead of covering it up with products like the one you mention.

Black, blue yellow or white colored cars don't mater. The clear coat on top of the base coat doesn't care what color your car is, but is the layer that in most cases shows the swirls. It's just easier to see on a darker color. Any surface damage and products that claim to be "the fix" for that damage particularly for dark cars will come under close scrutiny for those of us that research correcting methods and maintenance for our cars.

Your product looks like it'll fall into that category so there will be a certain level of skepticism from this group. We'll just want pictures and some of us will go as far as buying the product to debunk the advertisers claim. We're weird that way.

The only intention of my post was that their website says that it doesn't have fillers, then says it fills swirls. They can't both be true...

I honestly don't care which it is, just makes me a little nervous when a company writes stuff like that. Certainly doesn't mean it can't still be a good product though.

Hey, I don't care if any of you buy any or you don't. Was just passing along a tip. I like to get the surface perfect too, but unless you just polished it an hour ago, odds are good you have some minor surface flaw somewhere. This stuff works, doesn't hurt your paint, and well.. I just thought I'd pass along the info. If you don't think it's product description works for you, or if it makes you nervous then don't buy any. I just know it makes my car look great and feel slick and hasn't hurt a thing. I use it on my Camaro and my hot rod regularly with great results.

A friend of mine with a body shop in Kentucky gave some of this Wizards product to try. He thought it was great. I have used it on cars and boats and like it.

I just found out a local auto body/paint distributor sells it. Check your local shops, you might be able to get it or sample it without having to order online.

I've actually compared Wizard's to Unicorn Tears and found it to shine better and streak less.

Blasphemy!

Actually I am always all ears when somebody says a product is great for dark cars. I already took a members advice about BF Midnight sun wax with great results.

My friend actually introduced me to it after trying it on his brand new black Challenger R/T. His car was swirl free and had no paint damage prior to using the stuff yet it still added additional gloss and depth to the finish. I tried it on my '32, which is also nearly flawless (I have a Flex and am quite well versed and experienced in paint correction too, thanks!) and it totally surprised me. I never expected a quick detailer to work so well.

While i do try lots of products, and enjoy reading reviews... I am not usually one of those guys who start threads about any of them. This one stood out as something worth bringing attention to. Skeptics can dismiss it and keep using brand X, but if you're open minded and willing to try something under the radar, I'm fairly certain you'll be pleased with the results this stuff gives you!
