    Best Wax/Sealant For Black Car

    Just recently caved in and got my first ever black car. Curious to know which Wax/Sealant is best for black that will not cause swirl marks or even hide and remove them. Unfortunately dont have as much time as I used to to take care of my car since I now have a new baby. So I am looking for the easiest way to get the best results. Thanks

    Easiest and for durability I would say Poorboy's EX-P and Natty's Blue wax, Wolfgang's Sealent is great as well. But either way your going to want a good paint prep from either polishing or at least a cleaner like Klasse AIO before hand. Sealent/Wax is nothing without good paint prep.

    If you want the best durability from a nuba grab some Collinite Past Wax from a boating store which will be easy in Miami.

    What do you think of Meguiars NXT Tech Wax? Heard some good stuff about it. In the past on my Yellow car I used The Wax Shop Liguid Wax, hear anything about that one?

    I use WGDG topped with Pinnicle LS. The results are sick.

    Any reason you wax by hand? Thought the best thing about the Orbital Buffer was that it better than doing it by hand and no worry about burning the paint

    i doubt you'll burn the paint with a P.C RANDOM ORBITAL BUFFER, That's the beauty of it, where as a reg orbiter where it has to be moving all the time and really only used by the pro's is more dangerous in in-experienced hands......... and I really doubt you'll burn the paint by hand.........although?? nothing would surprise me.........

    I only would use a Random Orbital Buffer...Would never take the chance of burning the paint with one of the high speed buffers
