I liked the way it worked, If you dont want to use it dont. You certainly know how to get someone to never buy your products.

I don't get why your tripping..

I said it was funny and great marketing which it is because it markets owners of Black Vehicles and those are the hardest ones to keep clean.

The color of the wax has nothing to do with what it does. I could market Pink Wax to sell to all the ladies and it would sell JUST because it's Pink, doesnt matter what it is. You could also mark up the price just because of the color as well and make it look all fancy, bottom line is your getting a wax weather it has 1% percent carnuba or 70% depends on what your looking for.

Buy what you want and use what you like, that's all that matters to the end user.

Not bashing but the Thread name should be.... New Tint for Regular Wax.

Gimmick.... Color doesn't change properties.... wax is what wax is

And that stuff that was supposed to fill scratches was crap too... I had a black Shelby... applied the colored crap... still had a gray scratch...

Good thing you took the blue pill.. :lol:

I'm sure that wax will offer some short term filling properties and hide/cover some very minor swirl marks. It's not something I'd use but to each their own.

I've used Turtle wax on my car before and look what happened! :)

Well put Gary ..... Looks great for a few weeks, dries out, and then the reality of a scratch accentuated by a light wax filling sets in.

I have a obsession with wax. I have used plenty of waxes and while I won't participate in bashing waxes, I say at least the guy is waxing his truck. Thumbs up for that.:)

ProTip: The paint that you are actually waxing is clear.

A color tinted wax has no use in a clear coated world. The only possible advantage I could see it having is that it might dry black, which would make it less obvious if you have caked on wax left in little dings or chips.

The key to a good finish is having your clear coat be smooth and CLEAR.

LOL I actually bought that wax and was "schooled" on how to properly detail my truck...and my friend there are no short cuts to detailing and we shouldn't support this type of smokes and mirrors marketing or company! If you want to temporarily fill swirls try a glaze from adams or chemical guys. and if you want to fix the issue and not cover it hire a detailer or I highly recommend a detailing diy seminar, normally held at your local detailer stores.


I have unfortunately tried every product available at pepboys, walmart,autozone...If you must purchase them I recommend sticking with mothers, meguiars and 3m products. Or for real protection thats off the shelf is collinite wax

here's a project I recently finished. unfortunately I don't have before pictures but the swirls were bad!


note the "swirl" you see in the sun spot is actually wax residue
