    Default poorboys black hole, at what stage of cleaning?

    well, now the weather is getting a little warmer, I`m gonna get some p/b blackhole to add to the {growing} cupboard of cleaning products,
    the motor is sapphire black and in the past the cleaning consists of:-

    clay bar {once a year}
    A/G SRP
    A/G UD SHINE
    FK100p x2 coats

    so after the crap weather the motor is in dire need of a good seeing to, so after which process do I apply the blackhole? because the car does look well when clean but we all want that bit more deep wet look appearance, any advice? oh and how many coats + how often.
    the pleasures of having a black motor!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    no worries, you won't be disappointed with the finish!! what wax are you using? i like to use turtle wax platinum series wax, it gives a really nice wet look finish to the car

    Black Hole works best after washing and drying. polish off the mist that forms, then wax. I've been using Collinite 476s wax, gives an awesome finish! I'm sure I've got some pics I uploaded at some point!

    Yeah, use wax cos it seals it all in. It seems a bit daft at the time when you look at the shine from the Black Hole but I swear it looks even better after the wax too!
