Restoring the wow to your black car

You love your expensive set of wheels. How you wish that it were still in the glistening black mint condition that you bought it. However as everyone knows it is not quite possible, once you start driving the car around. Black colored vehicles especially are notoriously difficult to maintain. They are quite like us humans- prone to damage! With a black car, it is inevitable that those ugly swirl marks are going to catch up with it, if you are not taking proper care of your black vehicle.

However one needn’t fret for help is at hand in the shape of the special black paint maintenance kit from Chemical Guys. This comprises of six items that include one Black Glow Infusion (8oz), one Black Light Radiant Hybrid Finish Gloss enhancer and sealant (16 oz.), two Black Monster Edgeless Microfiber Towels (16”x16”) and two Black Ultrafine W-APS refined home applicators. These help the black colored paintwork retain its original look. At $130 this is one handy product to order.

Washing and waxing a black care is really a specialist activity. Never wash it in direct sunlight. Make sure to you a really good car soap. Before you wax the car, the paint has to be absolutely dry. You should use a wax designed for black cars, apply it by hand using a microfiber wax pad, then buffed off the wax with a monster edgeless microfiber towel to get rid of extra wax and let the shine come through.
