Black Wax for black Cars

Has anyone tried the Black Wax , there are several different brands advertising it hides scratches and paint defects on Black Paint? I have a new paint job that was treated badly by the painter, over buffed etc. Basically I'm going to live with it, its a street car, but would like to get it to look a little better.

Meguiar's and Turtle come up #1 on google search. both are under $15.


A painter had told me about the black wax , but said it was over $40.


I would rather pay $15 for the same results.


Thanks for the feedback.

I use Meguiar's in the squeeze tube on my '99 daily driver. Seems really oily, goes a long way. I can't say that I have compared results with plain wax but am quite pleased with the ease of application, appearance, and life of it. The dark and kinda greasy aspect of it helps on a finish that has not been clay barred and might have tiny stuck on dirt. Such as overspray which I get working around a body shop.

He did a decent paint job then screwed it up, buffing it and scratching and chipping on reassembly.


should be a law for poor workmanship by so called professionals!

I think I am going to go with the Meguiar's paste wax. This isn't a show car and I cant find the magic "Black Wax" that I was recommended, not sure if this guy knows what he was talking about anyway.


On my other cars and boat I use Collinite , they have good products , but no Black Wax. Thanks for your input!
