I have been using the Black Box from Turtle Wax for years. As an amateur detailer, I can tell you that this kit is easy to use. You simply follow the directions on the box! I kind of alter the way I shine though. First, I wash the car. It doesn't matter what car wash you use, as long as you are using some type of soap for cars. If you are using Dawn, or anything but a soap specifically for cars, you are just creating a problem. Second, I clay bar my car. I do not spend too much time doing this, at least, compared to what I used to. A quick clay bar every month should keep your paint pretty new looking. Depending on the abuse you put on the vehicle. After that, I use the black box. It says to do a section at a time, but I always do the whole car, and relax for 5-10 minutes afterwards. I use barely any of the detailing spray. Just enough to keep my microfiber towel moist, and that is it. It is just like polishing leather shoes, you want to use barely just enough for the best results. I let the entire vehicle haze over, and then go through with the steps. Only one vehicle has ever matched my shine, and it just got out of the shop for a new paint job. If you have an issue with this product, I am going to tell you that there is one of two things wrong. First, your technique is so bad, that you are screwing things up. Or second, your microfiber towels are absolutely horrible. I would have photos, but I keep getting errors. Find me on Instagram at ciwsguy for some of my results.
