I used this on my black 2000 Dodge Ram (quad cab). The job took about 4-5 hours between the washing/drying/application. The truck had many small scratches on it, and spots where the paint was becoming dull. After a few hours with this product, it looks as close to brand new as it ever will. It actually created a blinding light from down the road when the sun reflected off of it. Yes, this product requires a lot of elbow grease, but I don't consider that a fault. Nothing is "free" in this life. If you don't like that fact or don't have it in you, then hire someone. I had a lot of satisfaction though after finishing the job. With that being said, I don't see me doing this again for quite a while..free Saturdays are too few and far between.
This was a great product. Instructions were easy to follow..If I could improve it just a bit, maybe instructions on scratch removal. Either with what's in the box or referring the purchaser to another product. I figured it out, but it would have been nice..

I saw this on the store shelves one day and decided to give it a try. I have a custom black Trans Am with a really nice black paint that just has a bit of fading and some light swirl marks...both of which I was hoping this product would help eliminate. After 3 hours of labor, I was extremely disappointed in the results.

Let me say I am not a professional by any means, but I know what I'm doing when it comes to cars (both mechanically and light bodywork). For this product I followed the directions to the letter and did every single thing they suggested. One complaint right away is the mess it makes with your towels. The microfiber towels you use to take the polish off will almost instantly turn black. After a few passes, that section of the towel is practically useless. To clean the entire car, I unexpectedly went through 6 towels.

When i was done, the car didn't look much different from when I had started. That "ultimate deep shine" was no where in site. But my other (bigger) complaint was a day later. The car was inside a big convention hall on display. At first it shined really nice. But then the car started developing a cloudy haze all over it. I was able to remove the haze with a clean towel, but 15 minutes later it came back again. Thus during this 2-day event, I was wiping the car down FAR more than I should have...all just to get rid of a cloudy haze. It took two car washes and a new wax (with a different product) to eliminate it.

I tried returning this to the store a few weeks after I bought it. Because I didn't have the receipt, nor did I know the exact date I got it, they could not refund me the money. So in the end I wasted $20.00 and 3 hours of time for a product that didn't live up to its promoted expectations. Very disappointing.

Comments about Turtlewax Black Box™ Kit:

This product has not failed me yet. Spent hours trying to remove old wax and oxidation using other products that didn't work. Although this is a bit messy, the shine is amazing. I've used on 2 black cars I bought from a dealer who supposedly detailed for me. He needs to be introduced to this Turtle Wax product.

      Comments about Turtlewax Black Box™ Kit:

      Great product by Turtle that for the price out does the main competition of Meguiar's and Mothers' products. I have been using Turtle BB for the last couple years and it has done an exceptional job on bringing out the shine on my vehicle. Though it is not as glossy in terms of depth as some other waxes/polishes, and it does not cover up imperfections (those annoying hairline scratches) extremely well the overall effectiveness is worth noting and that is why I continue to use the product.

        Comments about Turtlewax Black Box™ Kit:

        I waxed my Nighthawk Black Pearl 08 Civic SI, and just doing the hood alone took at least an hour. This looks like it is meant for hand application only, so I left my orbital buffer in the cabinet.

        This was has SO many steps (6 or 7) and each one is MORE of a mess than the previous. Its like black ink. DO NOT WEAR NICE CLOTHES - THEY WILL GET RUINED. Also you need a set of latex/nitrex gloves, TRUST ME.

        As far as it being a great wax... well.. its average. I would go with Zymol or something more high end, and would not buy it again. You have no idea what type of job your in for by using this stuff... I would even recommend off the shelf "mothers" or "mcguires gold".

        I rate this at a 6.8 out of 10.

          I think I was expecting more. Maybe needs a professional polishing kit to get optimum results. I've used less expensive products and had the same result without the streaking.

          This product is not for the purist!!! It is for the ordinary guy like me! It hides/removes most minor scratches/blemishes. The vehicle looks great when done. It is a lot of hard work, but I think it is worth it! I wil buy it again. There is enough for me to do a CTS twice. Be sure and wear latex gloves to protect your hands from the black dye.
