Depth for Black

As the title suggests what would people recommend for getting a good depth and wet look on a black car?

I've tried some new products recently that have been a real disappointment so am looking at removing and reapplying.

My long standing standard is Poorboys (Nattys Black) but was wondering what people have been using to give the deep wet look to black?

I'm not bothered by durability as am happy to wax regularly. Big thing is easy removal, none of this having to use a QD to aid proper removal.

Thanks

If you want a deep wet look then ensure your paint is in great condition first, wax etc is a last step once the paint is perfect.

Have you tried polishing the car? Polishing does 99%, waxes do 1% difference!

The process is Poorboys SSR2.5 then 1 followed by 3M Blue Top. Then black hole, a sealant and a wax.

The standing recommendation for black is the Blackfire system. Have a read about it on the Polished Bliss website.

Blackfire or Megs NXT2 for me on black..

Both easy to apply and remove,, Blackfire warmer, and NXT2 for a sharp look IMO.

Or if you want cheap and easy (as well as ace looking) try Bilt Hamber Cleanser Polish with a couple of coats of Finish Kare #2685 "Pink Wax" over it.

I recently tried chemical guys blacklight topped with odk glamour on my black Seat Leon and it left a nice dark wet glossy finish, really impressed with this combo.
