Black Vehicle Owners

Anyone ever tried the Turtle Wax Black Box?

You guys think that this is all a hype or is it better then using regular wax products? (IE: Meguliars, Pinnacle, Ect.)

Picked up some today, I'm about to go try it out just letting the paint cool off some. I'm going to clay bar it as well, I'll take a lot of before and afters

Hit is with the ICE clay bar, or mothers clay. then use the black box....It leaves a deep, rich finish that looks awesome. Autozone has had it for about 3 months and I've only sold 2

I just finished claying,waxing my truck today. Even though its not black its a dark color . I used showcarnuba wax and clay and his lubricant and it looks and feels awesome. I took some pics and ill show them to you. It took me about 2-3 hrs to do. and it looks better now than when I took it off the car lot. I found showcar on a Mustang forum. they talked about showcar detail very highly. and they used this wax on their $90,000 Shelby's. So I bought some and Im very satified with it. I had Questions so I called and he was very helpful. The plus side of it is the wax goes on easy and comes off easy. and it didnt turn my vynilal white when I accidently got some on it. If you want his info just send me a PM. Pics coming soon.

Ha yeah right. Clayed it and used the black box, NXT wax is so much better. This stuff is a gimmick

Right on man. Thanks for being the test pilot on this stuff. I guess I'll stick to my Pinnacle wax.

I have yet to find a Turtle Wax product that actually works or is easy to use. It all sucks.

I will stick with Meguires on my black truck.

Does no one here use the turtle wax ice paste?? I use it and get this shine everytime. Then use the detail spray after every wash, and it restores the shine.

Tried that wax last time I did my truck, only because I had some sent to me from Turtle Wax. It blew. The stuff was sooo difficult to get off the truck. NXT goes on and comes off sooo smooth and the Turtle Wax Ice needed two people, tons of elbow grease, and even a spray with quick detailer to get off.

I will give it one thing though, it is the only wax I have ever seen that is safe to get on plastic, and actually did a good job of making my plastic flares on the F150 look pretty good.

I'm interested in trying this stuff. What makes it special for black vehicles as opposed to regular waxes.

Its supposed to be better for it or something like that. Its not even a real wax, its a spray wax. That stuff stains like crazy too, my hands were black for 2 days after wards.

I used Showcarnuba from showcardetail.com I have pic of my truck after I used this wax. it was easy to put on and comes off easy too. It wasnt messy either. If you have a black truck I recomend this wax. im trying to put my pics up but im not sure how. give me a couple of mins. lol

Did you clay bar it first? I always claybar mine before waxing. keeps the paint in good condition! I didn't think it was that hard to get off. Did you leave it dry on there for like an hour before wiping it off or something LMAO

Ive used Turtle wax, Mothers, and Meguiars and this stuff is deeper, shinier,
and more reflective than anything Ive ever used. I wax my cars every six months and follow up a detail spray and the results are amazing.

The best thing is it goes on easy and comes off easy. The wax is not cheap but it saves time and money.
