Car waxes ??

I waxed my truck today. I bought a new wax and its the worst crap Ive ever used. It doesnt dry..doesnt buff out and looks like CRAP! Its www.blackmagiccarcare.com Its dark now, I cant wait to see it in the sun tomorrow. What a pain in the ass The rest of the bottle is going back
What works for you guys? keep in mind I have a black truck so its not easy to get a good shine without the swirls

I use Meguiar's deep crystal system, on my half black/red bike and my dark geen car works great for me. In between polishing and waxing I use their quick detail spray.

I use Zaino.... easy to use, lasts long, and looks great. Put a couple coats of that on my Evo before the winter. I am going to stick with that stuff.

i usually use meguiars products, but a really nice wax that i have been using is made by eagle one...it's called "nano wax", and it's really easy to apply & take off...

Mike i use (after many trials of brands ) Maguires GOLD.

This stuff is awesome.... I use it by hand and i use it with the electric waxer. I have always had great results EVERY time.

This is the ONLY wax i would recommend!

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!
