Black Wax

I own a black Explorer. To those of you who own black vehicles: What is the best wax to use on a black Explorer, or products you've had particular success with? I've cleaned this vehicle with washes, but not yet waxed it for fear of using the wrong product that puts swirl marks, etc... or other "preventables" on the finish. I've never waxed a black car before, so I thought I'd ask. Anything I should NOT do with regard to black painted cars that differs from those of a different color?

I'm tempted to go with good 'ole Turtle Wax once I get a good surface cleaning. Ok? Thoughts?

Thanks,
Brad

Try some Meg's #16 or #26, also some S100 would look nice.

Contact Black Magic and see how he keeps his black X clean and shiny. Wouldn't hurt.

This wax is the exact same thing as P21S and is sold through Harley dealers for half the price. Highly recommended.

For wax on a budget, Meguars Gold is tough to beat.
Spend a little bit and get Zaino. Very impressive stuff.
