    Re: Black Wax

    There are a few "it depends" in there... if the paint is already in good shape, it could come out close. It can only reach a certain level.

    If the paint needs more work, the separate steps will likely work better.

    Of course the separate wax will likely be better as far as durability. And then what you consider as 'good looks'... some may prefer the look of Nxt or Ult waxes.

    The black wax has more oils, so more potential for depth. But the White Wax is a better cleaner, if that is what the paint needed instead.

    Re: Black Wax

    Clarification regarding my question above................My black vehicle is an '07 Equinox. Since new it has been maintained with #80 as needed, then weekly clay and #26. It has an extremely DEEP finish.

    My white vehicle is a 2012 Colorado. It was driven home from dealer...washed, clayed, washed, #80, #7, 3 applications of NXT applied 24 hours apart. (washed and dried between each appl.) Then 3 applications of #26 24 hrs apart, washed in between. This vehicle is washed and waxed one to two times weekly. Result....eeenhh....for white its not bad. You do have to park it next to another Summit White Chevrolet to really notice the difference.

    I'll try the "white" wax just for the sake of my own personal info. I was just wondering just how much better it will be if any.

    ^^ Wow, sounds like your vehicles keep you busy!

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    Re: Black Wax

    as Davey said, "wow". I grabbed a calendar just to figure this out. You wash and wax six days out of seven, three days of NXT and three days of M26. You and the Summit only get one day of rest a week. Nope, nope, excuse me, I just re-read what you said. That was just the first week of ownership, now you wash and wax once or twice a week.

    Warning...sarcasm ahead....you may want to try Ultimate Wax after using White or Black Wax to get better longevity.... The weather in Texas must be wicked to require that much waxing !! Lately around here, you wash a couple of times a week to be able to see out your windshield through all the gnats stuck to the glass.

    Re: Black Wax

    Yes, on average I wash, between the 2 vehicles on average 3 times a week. Obvious exceptions are rainy days. The black every Sunday, the white usually Mon/Thurs. I do not wax that often due to poor performance of the product, or lack of longevity. When one has one's home wash set up reasonably organized, and with a DA buffer, it only takes an extra 20-30 mins to apply and wipe off an application of a good quality product like M26.

    Well....I tried to post pics.....that didnt work out so well. Does one use the HTML from Photobucket, or other code?

    Re: Black Wax

    I think you will find if the #80, #7, and 6 coats of wax dont do it, not much will. You are probably near the top of the looks already.

    Maybe #205, but that is just something to try if you like experimenting.

    You want to use the little 'tree in a box' looking button, and then insert the link from the gallery into the pop up box.
