:scratchchin I have had great luck with the Mothers System. I wash and ClayBar, then wax with Mothers Carnuba Wax. Shine seems like it's 10 Ft deep:happydance: You can check out my ride on roaminponies.com in the members ride section. Look for mstng32vt...that's mine.

The Clay Bar will help to pull off any impurities on the clear coat. Lightly rub the back of your finger along the paint before and after you clay the car and you will be able to tell a difference. Then do it before and after the wax. The car feels liquid smooth. I use Mother's stuff. It is really nice I think and I have a black Mustang. My paint is in anything but good condition and after I clay/wax the car looks amazing.

No downs only good things. The clay bar will pull the impurities from you paint and you will be amazed how it feels and looks when you are finished. You wont be sorry.

I also have a black mustang, and using the Mothers Clay Bar system makes my car look super awesome! no downsides it just takes a little more time, but it is well worth it!

Fan of Mother's and Meguiars. Give your car a good bath and dry it in a shaded area. Once the paint is cool, you can clean the paint using the claybar. Use a liquid polish and follow up with a liquid wax. Liquids don't last as long, but they give a better shine and show less swirl marks on black paint. You can also use a synthetic liquid wax which will last longer than paste wax.

What kind of stripes do you have and where are they on the car? Usually you can use a soft damp cloth to wipe of the decals and use a detail brush (looks like a large toothbrush but softer) to remove dried wax on the edges of the decals, emblems, body panels.

Mothers has a great caurbana wax. However, the wax doesn't make the shine. Polish and clay bars will bring that. I like Meguiar's for those things.

I swear by Mother's & Meguiars car care products, but I recently tried out some Turtle Wax polish & I gotta say I was very impressed with the results. My stang's paint is black as well & it didn't leave a single swirl mark. Although it could be because I switched to a microfiber buffing cloth & whiped back 'n' forth instead of in small circles. Yes, claybars are AWESOME. :happyhapp Everyone so far has offered really good suggestions/recommendations so far...

Gentle touch is the key. I've detailed too many cars to ever get a black car. They look great but are too hard to maintain in Dallas. My financee ended up getting a black PT this past year. It's a good car, but I already have detailing issues. Time to buy a new buffer.
