Default Turtle Wax Black Box

Hey i was wondering if anyone has used the turtle wax Black Box? and what kind of results you got? I read some reviews and it looks good but i am kinda worried about how it is tinted with black pigment



thanks

I have used it and it does produce satisfying results.

The second step is akin to either using claybar or polishing compound, or something in between. So just by following through with the steps, you're doing more than washing and waxing.

Swirl marks are in fact eliminated or perhaps filled in with black pigment so that their reflection is gone.

Either way the consistant black shine is pretty amazing to see. I know birds like it. They pretty much see it and just shit.
But I think its just like a "safe" paint detailing method in a box. The black pigment is there as backup for the scratches that don't get buffed out maybe.

After six weeks I know I still don't see any swirl marks that I know were there before I used it.

Wear gloves.
