yeah Tim I think our best bet is going to be Zaino....I have yet to try it, but I might buy the whole kit for like $90 bucks or whatever it is.

I detailed a friends mercedes a while back. Used Turtle wax buffing compound, 3m swirl mark remover and Mothers Paste Wax. came out looking like black glass. However, thje swirl mark remover is $40 for abottle at english color, so zaino treatment might be your best bet.

By the way, are you planning on doing this by hand or machine? I use Meguiar's products when I detail cars. I use the Gold Class wax or No. 7 Glaze. Both will give great results on dark colors. Just be sure the surface has been properly cleaned as this is the foundation to great results. Good luck

You can get Tropicare locally. Friend of mine sells it. Also, detailing is his business, he uses it every day. PM me if you'd like his number.

I bought the Zaino kit a year ago for my Mystic. Since the directions were a little more complicated than:
1. Wash
2. Dry
I decided to practice first on my daily driver, a black 1999 GMC Sierra.

Going through all the steps exactly according to the directions, for the first time, took about three hours altogether. Have plenty of clean white 100% cotton towels ready. The results were remarkable. I am going to try attaching a photo, but it really doesn't do justice to the shine--I could have shaved in my reflection.

Even a friend of mine who washes his truck annually commented on it.

Its because Im an automotive painter who know that wax only fills in scratches for a few days. If you really want a car to shine the best thing to do is buff it, insted of it just filling in scratches, it gets rid of them if you know what your doing. And wtf is an Ethug?

I use a polish called Plum Crazy, then I follow up with Meguiars Gold Class. My car turns out pretty damn good if I do say so myself, it better after @ 3-4 hours of doing it.
