I have used Blackhole and White Diamond on solid red and not too much of a difference, Blackhole would be my choice though.

Phew!

I didn't realise I was opening quite such a can of worms, but very interesting replies.

Just one question though, to illustrate my ignorance, I referred to a Poorboys product, rather than a specific. It was White Diamond I had in mind, but is this actually a wax, and if not, do the same comments apply?

White Diamond is classed as a Glaze rather than a wax and contains filler. I have used and not topped with anything in the summer, but you could top with a non abrasive wax or sealant.

I think I know the one you mean. If I remember correctly it was done on the bonnet of a white van and the waxes tested certainly left a coloured tint after a few coats, I specifically remember the blue standing out. One thing I remember thinking at the time though was whether that coloured tint would last after a wash.

there are better for that colour, but you have the white diamond so you can use that up first if you prefer.

Is solid red a light colour or a dark colour?
Light red = pink
