    As another person previously stated, the best method to producing the best look for any vehicle is achieved through the prep and polishing work. Essentially, your flattening the clear coat to achieve maximum clarity. After achieving this, I'd recommend using BLACKFIRE Wet Diamond All Finish Paint Protectant. Allow this to cure for 24 hours and then top with BLACKFIRE Midnight Sun Ivory Carnauba Paste Wax. The finish produced when using these products in combination, along with the proper prep steps is incredible. I used this combination on a 2012 Black Lexus ES 300 and it was stunning! Feel free to go to my webpage (google search my forum member name and it will come up). Then select Gallery. Their you'll find the before and after photos of the vehicle I mentioned above.

    BlackFire products are great IMO... I have the Wet Diamond Finish myself...

    This looks very misleading as there's basically no professional detailers products on the lists. I'm thinking this was intended for the consumer with ready access to Over-the-Counter products.

    There are quite a few brands that make waxes that are intended for black or darker colored vehicles.

    A few good ones that I have used are Blackfire BlackICE Hybrid, Chemical Guys Pete's 53 Black Pearl, Meguiar's Black Wax and there are many more.

    Here is a review I did recently for the release of Poorboy's World Natty's Black Paste Wax. Here is a picture of the car I used this product on.

    Those look sweet KMG - nice job!

    I'm thinking to try out that BlackICE since I have black. Being it's a paste - do you apply it directly onto the paint and spread with pad on low or do you apply spots onto the pad like liquid?

    Have you ever tried Reload?
