turtle wax had a product called "color match" years ago, there was green,red, blue, black and I think yellow, I've used the red and blue on past vehicles and it worked ok, not as glossy as the black box kit , but decent shine , haven't seen it around in years though

yes , it's beautiful country , I could never live anywhere else ,we live in the middle of hundreds of square miles of mountains, lakes, creeks and rivers , with bush roads and trails going in all directions, all accessible to the public , no gates , no law enforcement , no traffic, there's times we will go days without seeing another person , Life Is Good

Thank's for the response I have seen a couple of waxes with what I presume is some black or dark pigment I had not seen any other colors and as there does't seem be others I wondered why and what effect if any the black or dark wax had on other dark colors or would it give a faint faux finish.

I used #2 bottle of meguires on a 6" orbital sander with an applicator pad then used turtle wax product called ICE as the wax,made a wicket difference on my burnt orange 2010..
If you used the blk box stuff,just pick up some rubber gloves or try the invisable glove stuff thats a a cream you put on your hands and wash off..prob solved
