    Black Box

    Anyone ever heard of the black box by turtle wax? i saw it at my work for 20 bucks and i figured i would try it. It turned out amazing for me! It took out all of the swirl marks from other waxes and a lot of fine scratches. I could see myself in the reflection afterwards. I was skeptical at first but im glad i bought it! turned out great.

    No wax should ever 'remove' scratches.
    If it did...all it did was cover them up, and they will return shortly.


    That said, I will NEVER use a Turtle Wax product on ANY of my cars. Ever.

    I tried it the cheap way and failed. I gathered a few actual turtles (already dead on the highway) and attempted to extract the wax from them. I assume their blood is the wax, as it was the majority of what came out...but now my white car is all stained in this poop looking color......

    On a serious note, I have had good luck with Mother's, and have seen awesome results from Zaino on Preston's car. I think I'll stick with those. Post pics to entertain me anyway

    The only way to remove fine scratches/swirl marks from your finish, is with a mild abrasive compound applied either by hand or with an orbital buffer. And I agree Curtis. At present, Zaino's the only polish that touches my car.

    I'm sure it looks great on the car right now. But, has it rained yet?

    That's what I'm here for! And yes, you'll get that long lasting look with a good polymer-based polish.

    Or you could just spray down your car with Pledge and wipe in for a nice shine (until it sees rain, that is).

    Vaseline works on my body, I apply daily. Should work great on my car as well, I'll post up pics when I'm done, of us both all lathered up, together, just me and my SS....





    Might get her Zaino'd next week though!! Thanks to my good buddy from the B.A.

    I think I know who that is. Do they have more Star Wars toys, than they know what to do with?
