    Colored Waxes - Do they really work?


    They arent toally useless, when you tell a customer that the body panel that has paint chips/scratches should be repainted and they cant afford it. You can use it to "fill small chips" because instead of leaving a white color like most waxes, it leaves a black color so it is easier on the eyes, but NOT a fix for the problem.

    repo makes a point, Joe aka SuperiorShine has made this point also in the past, and that is if the product dries black, then you could benefit if it leaves wax in the rock chips by hiding them versus wax that dries white.

    Of course a black crayon will do the job for a lot less than $30.00

    Here's these of course...

    A colored magic marker also works. I'm guilty of this.

    Colored waxes were a cheap fix for old, checked lacquer paints.

    In high school, a friend showed me a trick to getting wax out of the cracks in the paint on his '83 Cutlass Ciera. It was dark red metallic. He'd wax with red-tinted wax, then wipe with a piece of short, tight napped carpet. That's right, wipe with carpet. It would pull the extra wax right out of the cracks. His finish looked....well.....sorta' red when he was done.
    See the big picture, enjoy the details

    Well I've learned something new tonight. Black crayon for the chips.

    What about using a Fine Tipped Sharpie in small chips?

    I can't imagine the scratches this left behind

    Thanks for the feedback...
    I still like the protection and deep wet shine M21 leaves on my Black Vehicle. However the smallest pin head chips really do stand right out even when touched up with a magnifying glass and pin head of paint.

    The manufacture was good enough to send me a small sample...however after 2 applications (in a test area), I can't see any reason to purchase any. It didn't hide/fill slight swirls any better than my M21.
    *I must add that it was quite cold when I applied this product soooo maybe it really didn't cure all the way.
    *At this time no real stone chips...so I can't offer any info there.
    One thing I notice, not only does this wax look like fudge...but it also smelled like it...lol...but I ain't tasting it!

    I appreciate ANY manufacture that is willing to send out a test sample of their product to a consumer. Way too much marketing hype out there now ah day's.
