Was intrigued looking at this "just for black cars" wax so I bought the box for $20.00 plus some microfiber polishing cloths. My '07 black Impala SS has 70,000 mile son it and the front is chipped up. Here are some guidelines:

Wear gloves / your hands will turn black and will need some abrasive soap to get clean.

It is more liquid, so spilling is easier than regular liquid wax.

Do not apply this while your car is on any concrete driveway or floor. Even stains blacktop. Suggest maybe working on the car on your lawn.

Application is easy for the pre-cleaner, then you use the spray detailer to wipe off the pre-cleaner. Then you apply the wax and wipe off with more spray detailer.

Overall effect - did a good job restoring the black. Did not really fill in the chips as advertised. I think now a good refinishing paint job will do. Was it better than regular wax? Not really. I did a section next to it with Zymol cleaner / wax and the Zymol did a slightly better job.

So - save your $ and time.

It did a good job. Maybe I was expecting more, but to deal with the black colored liquids would be worth it if the results were spectacular. They were good but no better than Meguiars or any other higher grade cleaner wax. There were no swirls though.

If it stains skin, concrete and blacktop, I wouldn't put it on my car's paint.

Have you tried any dye kits? http://www.goestores.com/store.....52130.aspx

The dealership I worked at years ago had a reconditioning shop and they just used dye to restore faded plastic. It IS NOT a dressing, so if you want the gloss look, you still need dressing afterwards. Just make sure you use masking tape around the area that is to be dyed.

Good looking out. I may have too order me some. I'm only looking for the original mattte finish so that should work.

I've always used the black box. Sure it's messy but it never stained my skin.

I used the Black Box kit on my 98 Formula with 140k miles on the paint job. I was very happy with the before and after. I actually just picked up another kit for my new Impala. Time to get to work!

I tried it once, I think it looks nice the moment you are done, but the second it rains or anything it looks terrible. There's always spots on the car that clean right off with actual detailer.

It's too much work. You could do a nice clay, polish, and wax for the same effort and have a lasting effect.

It doesn't really matter what product I use when I detail the Monte Carlo. As soon as I pull it out of the garage it starts to look like look like crap... (I'll never own another black car, that's for sure).

I mean, the dye in the wax seems to move around weird. It's not the usual marks of a black car. It's kind of like parts of the car became matte black, you can tell it's just the dye rising to the top / moving.
