    I use Griot's Garage Liquid Poly Gloss wax on all 3 of my vehicles and it works excellent. Goes on easy and wipes off easy with no white dust. Griot's just came out with a user friendly spray on ceramic wax which looks like the cat's you know what, and I may try that out, at least on the Dakota and Mustang (which get wet). Supposed to make the paint hydrophobic where the water doesn't just bead, it turns into a ball and runs right off, along with dirt contained in the rain.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I will give it a try. I am a little ashamed to say it the past I have used the once a year car wax in the orange bottle.

    I was using Meguiars Ultimate on the everyday vehicle and Meguires gold class wax on the older. The paint appeared splotchy after removing the Ultimate product. I would either have to wipe it down a second time with a new towel or rewash the car. I recently switched to a Griot's Garage product. A little more that most other waxes but I'm liking it so far. Black is such a bitch to keep clean, and I have three black vehicles to maintain.

    Over the past 20+ years i've found Griot's Garage products cost more initially but they actual end up costing less because the products work better and you use less of it, and their micro fiber towels are the best. The PFE ones are awesome for wax removal. Got to give them an atta boy for the glass cleaning towels also. Microfiber on one side for intitial wipe down and then flip it over to the smooth side for the final buff. Glass comes out spotless and streak free.

    I know all about black, which is what my Dakota is.
