I used to have a black car...just used a chamois and it came out spotless everytime. I'm not sure how much time you take but when I give my vehicle a wash it usually takes me about 2 or 3 hours, thats just the outside and no waxing. Take your time....it's part of the enjoyment of owning a car/truck.

I have a red truck. but my dad has a dark green, and whenever we wash them, we use the turtle wax zip wash, kinda leaves a little bit of a waxy look to it. then to dry I use a shamy cloth, its called "the absorber" comes in a variety of colors and can be found at walmart- dont know if youve tried it already, just putting it out there. something that I found was making a constant effort to keep the truck washed down and wet. also, keeping a good coat of wax will help.

if you have a black truck and you are worrying about water spots you better go ahead and trade that sucker in. i have a black truck and i love it. especially when its muddy. makes it look even better. wash it every now and then so you remember what it looks like nice and shiny(all five minutes of it)

Mine stays nice and clean looking for about a week, before it needs to be retouched up

i just bought my first truck. and instead of letting the dealership "detail" it. i told them i could do a better job than them anyday (not to sound cocky but i really do think so) so i took it home and i had horrible water spots.
just like always though,
meguiar's cleaner wax
meguiar's gold class
meguiar's quick detailer.
passed my "slide test" like a charm. the only spots i see now are the windows and i havent' gotten to them yet.

This is probably the best thing to do....by the time you get done with one side...the sun has already made the other side spotty. AND...always use a chamoise (did i spell that right)?
