Dark Colours - What Wax Are You Using

Recommended Posts

Highly recommend Auto finesse Illusion for the summer but it isnt cheap and will need to be reapplied every couple of months. Very easy to apply and the finish afterwards is amazing.

Dodo juice supernatural is also very good especially if you want the metallic flake to show through. It should also last around 4/6 months between coats even with the crappy British weather.

PoorBoys Black Hole is a glaze, so if you just apply it and no sealant / wax on top, it probably won't past a wash or two. It's good stuff to use before waxing / sealing.

Autoglym UHD has great gloss on dark colours and lasts around 3 months in my experience. I've also got Soft99 Fusso, which has great longevity (6-12 mths) and looks good, but not quite as good as UHD. If you don't want to wax regularly worth considering Fusso or a ceramic coat.

Forensic Detailing on YouTube for good product tests. If you want to properly geek out on this stuff Pro Detailer Magazine is worth a look.

Some good products mentioned so far. If applying by hand something like black hole or autoglym super resin Polish will be great for hiding some minor mark and giving you a nice base to apply a wax or sealant onto. The soft99 stuff is my current favorite. King of gloss will give the best finish as @lowe mentioned above. I use soft 99 fusso as I like the long term durability and hydrophobic properties of it. It is not quite as glossy however I have mine a full machine Polish prior to applying it and it still came out well.
