    Best glaze/polish for black

     



    I bought some of the new mother's power polish and it seems to work ok but no matter what I do or how perfect I put it on/take it off, I still end up with some smeary marks here and there. I've tried the 3M Imperial stuff as well and completely hated it. Anyone out there use anything different that has good results and is easy to use?????

    I use 3M fill&glaze (pink liquid) works great but not to be used in HOT sun light.

    are you using a machine or hand glaze? I use 3M imperial #05992 with a
    foam pad and it works good on Black for me. There is an old product
    called liqued Ebony thats still avalabel at the Dupont store here in my town.
    Its black so it does't show in the cracks as much. It's made be cleanbrite co.
    Another easy one is Ultra Care Products Super Finish.
    good luck, Ron

    I like either Race Glaze or 3M Hand glaze. Both work great when applied corretly. I usually follow them with Meguair's Final Inspection.

    First What are you doin ? Are you refinishing your paint if so you need to use some Mothers Pre Wax Cleaner this takes it down to the clear coat, removes all oxidation and any crap stuck to your paint. Then hit it with some Mothers Sealer and Glaze to bring out the color in your paint also sealing any imperfecctions the glazing it over then use some either Mothers Fx. syn. waxwhich is synthetic with high gloss polymer or the Carnauba wax by mothers then after that your finished maybe if your heart desires use some Mothers Reflections Top Coat for an extra show quality look. Maybe after a couple weeks you wash it a couple times use some Mothers Showtime To restore everything and make it look as good as it did when you were done

    liqued ebony still may be the best you need to run the buffer slooow with a wool finsh wheel. i do not like much of any thing that fills up a scratch. you are better to buff it out . but did like the 3M machine glaze and still like finesse with a finsh foam wheel. i have used the mother and meguairs with good luck but the meguairs medallion i like the best for black . there is not a better color to paint a car and take a lot of time .

    1st
    Meguiars #80
    2nd
    Meguiars #7
    3rd
    Meguiars Gold class

    then use Last touch detailing spray.
    It will be flawless I promise and I will put my paint up against anyone.
    I am sure you will get at least 10 others who use something different

    Thanks fellas... there were some products mentioned here that I havn't heard of. The 3M glaze I tried was that perfect-it III hand glaze I believe. It was extremely hot the day i did it, i was in the shade but it seemed to almost harden as was tough as nails to get back off. The Mother's polish I use I apply with a applicator pad and buff off with microfiber towels. The car was just painted a few months ago b/c c/c. I've been told to steer clear of waxes on black period.

    here is what I'm working with, looks good in most light but bright direct sunlight shows the smears.... there are very very fine spiderweb swirls but they are almost un noticeable to the untrained eye, not worried about them at all.

    it is not so much the black but the clear. you have trap the black under the clear and any thing you do you are working on the clear .that is why alot of guys that want a deep black will sand it flat and reshoot it with clear or more black to have it dead flat i like no clear on black and think you will have the deepest paint this way i have did many with clear and no clear so you need to work out the web marks on the clear.

    Anyone who tells you to stay clear of wax on black or any color has no clue what they are talking about. Polish will get you the shine and depth you are looking for but ONLY wax will get you the protection that all cars need from UV light , acid rain, dird and bug droppings.
    I have been doing this a long time and work for the leader in the business.
    Who evers products you use is fine but make sure you use wax
