For those who doubted turtle waxes black box... look at my thread I posted.
http://ramforumz.com/showthread.php?p=165896#post165896

my finish is 12 years old.

Don't doubt the black pigment. I watched some scuffs and scratches vitually vanish.

I don't doubt that the black wax will hide some imperfections, I had some of the Turtle Wax color match wax in green and black back in the day. I was never satisfied with the short term results that most of these products delivered so I got a Makita rotary buffer and a Porter Cable random orbit to fix the problem with the paint instead of covering them up. By no means am I suggesting that everyone go out and get a buffer, they take a long time to use but if you can find something to practice on it is a worthwhile skill to learn. All it comes down to is if the results look good to you.

Ah yes, I use Ice products to detail my vehicle, they work fantastic, and...smell good. sounds weird, but maybe you've smelled black magic? It reeks. It's a catchy name too... "ice" lol.

Just purchased the black box. Just need some nice weather now to wash her up. Says it leaves no white residue. Must be like the Turtle Wax Ice.

Well let us know how it works beermanjoe. I just used the Meguires NXT on my truck last weekend. I liked it, made it shine very nice!

I still want something for black vehicles. Thanks for all the posts guys!
