Is solid red a light colour or a dark colour?
 
I have a Poorboys product for light coloured cars, and I understand they have a black version for darker ones.

Which should I use on a bright red (non metallic) Volvo C70?

Thanks

Malcolm

personally of the 2 i'd put it into the light category although red usually falls into the 'warm' colour band, hope that helps a bit :thumb:

I'd go light too.
Either will look equal as good, maybe do a 50/50 on the bonnet to see which you prefer.

Imo it doesnt matter which one you use as a wax doesnt know the colour of your car and it is actually lying on top of your clearcoat which ic clear in colour. marketing hype re waxes from some companies regarding colour specific products

Doubt if it will make any difference!

do you really think a black wax will make a difference?

Not necessarily, but as there are two products, there could have been a reason other than marketing spin.

Thanks for all the comments, by the way, I'll go with light!

I recall there was an experiment done here where 3-4 coats of coloured waxes certainly left residue on a white car. I'll see if I can find it...

If you can get hold of Prima Amigo then use that on your paint, it's a fantastic glaze and it will leave your paint very glossie and wet looking.

I always classed Red into the dark end. Took light as silvers, light blues and whites, but as said, it'll prob not make a huge difference on red
