Looks really Great! Clean & Shiny Black cars DO really look GOOOD! I also think claying a new car makes sense, they all sit outside from the factory to the new car lot (you can usually feel the grit after washing & drying)! Anyway you did a good job on it!

That Black Box is pretty good as far as shine.

If I was gonna clay bar the car I would have gone with like Collinite 845.
It lasts A LOT longer. I know for a fact one coat of it lasts more than 4 months.
And the shine is great too. All you need after that for a good while is a Califonia Duster to get the dust off then every once in a while some instant detailer if you get
a mud splash or something on her.

The 845 is just a GREAT wax.
You have to order it over the internet but it puts the over the counter
wax's to rest when it comes to longevity.

I think claying a new car is important because once it is assembled,it just sits outside,usually in a big city.Lots of fallout,pollution and elements.Also transporting can leave a lot of contamination,not only from the elements but dust from the train brakes.Also it gave me a chance to really get a good look at the whole car overall.
That is why it's important to clay a new car. Rail dust will especially show up on white cars, but doesn't show on darker cars. It's still there though, and should be removed. The other reason for claying a car, is so when you wax it, all contaminants, including previous wax, are off the paint. If you continue to wax a car without claying it, over time you will start to lose that deep gloss due to build-up.

Blackbox kit is great for $20 something dollars. It was the first polish and wax I used on my car.

No need to paint your fenderwells, just get some of this:

Absolutely beautiful car - now black those tires and clean under your wheel wells and it will be perfect.

Nice job! Mine is black as well and when she's clean there's nothing sweeter. But keeping it looking pristine is driving me freakin crazy! :-) Just purchased a Port Cable 7424xp and that thing is awesome. Removes all the fine spider webs (swirl marks) in the paint.

Kevin,
What pads and cleaner are you using on yours? I am really interested in getting one.

Hey Alan,

I purchased this package:
http://www.autopia-carcare.com/wolfg...cable-duo.html

I'm a novice regarding this topic, but I can honestly say it's working great for me. I watched a few of the videos which really helped and did a practice run on my Ford Ranger. :-)

Here's the thread which has some of my results...
https://mustangforums.com/forum/v6-s...e-mod-bug.html

It has the following pads:

The CCS Orange 5.5 Inch Cutting Foam Pads is included for general swirl and defect removal. Orange pads are less aggressive than the yellow pads. Use the orange pad to apply swirl removers and polishes.

The CCS Gray 5.5 Inch Finishing Foam Pad will apply waxes and paint sealants flawlessly. The soft foam is firm enough to remove light buffer swirls during final finishing.

I think you'll really like it and it's not very expensive for the results you get.
