    Best on black

    Looking for a good protectant/wax for a new black vehicle. It is a chevy, and Chevy black is more of a straight black, no metal flake. Any suggestions?

    Any wax/sealant/coating will protect your paint if you do it like the manufacture suggests.

    The key is to perfect your washing techniques too limit swirling and polishing down the road.

    Pinnacle Souveran is an old forum favorite for black but short longevity. What type of length of protection are you looking for, vs. what type of look? It would be easier to narrow the suggestions with these known... because there’s tons of great choices.

    It’s not black, just like they said. It’s all in technique.

    •I’ll suggest Meguiars Black Wax (G62).
    Meguiars Black Wax, black wax for cars

    -It’s an excellent “AIO”...loaded with ‘tons’
    of Meguiar’s T.S.O. (trade secret oils):
    just exactly what’s needed to supply the
    the wet-look to; and enhance the depth of;
    Chevy ‘straight Black’ paint.

    Other waxes that do black well are Dodo Juice Blue Velvet and Purple Haze, Poorboys Natty Blue or Black, Zymol Carbon, WG Fuzion. For longevity waxes (6 months) at a bargain price, get some Collinite 915 or 476.

    If you want more longevity (up to 6 months) BF Sealant and WG DGPS are my faves on black, but PBL Sealant and M37 Hi Def Sealant are also nice.

    I counted 16 recommended waxes and sealants..they are all good, but they will not prevent marring.

    If you don't wash your truck properly you will have a ton of swirls in your black paint. Which in turn make your shiny black paint dull and ugly.

    An ounce of prevention................

    I didn’t see any specific request about how to prevent marring or technique advice. Just trying to assist with the request for a good protectant/wax for new black paint.
