Sup Guys. Jweezy/Justin AGGAAAIINNN...lol

Well I started washing/waxing my car at 6:45pm yesterday(Thursday)

I just got finish 3:55 am...Crazy huh...well i wanted to do a good job, and i ran into a couple of problems.

NO problems actually putting the wax on the car. I put a good amount on my car. I wanted to see this wax on the car GOOD. Matter fact a lil more than expected I have to say…5 out of 5 for Black Magic there.

I left the wax on the car for about 2 1/2 maybe 3 hours, INSIDE MY GARAGE. Had to go meet up with some ladies…you know…how I do.

I had used 3 bonnets when i first started buffing. 1 for rear, 1 for behind the left rear wheel panel, and 1 for the right rear panel. So im like what the hell...why am i going through these so fast. soooo....

1. Middle of Waxing I ran out of Bonnets for my buffer, and i was still on the rear of the car...so i started suspecting that this POWERED BUFFER THING was OVER RATED.or these bonnets just SUCK. so i got in my PIMP JUICE(1998 ESCORT) drove to a SUPER WALLYWORLD(WAL-MART).

got 16(2 packs of 8) HAND MICRO-FIBER. cloths. 4.50 each GREAT DEAL.

and 3 bonnets 3.75 each…rip OFF all they had too.

.I had a plan.

I was going to wip all the wax of with the hand towels since I had 16 of them. Then PERFECT IT with the 3 bonnets on my POWERED HAND BUFFER…I was so happy with this plan…

SOOO…I drove home and got to my garage around 2:00 am

BOOM…that's where this BLACK MAGIC STUFF…CAME ALIVE…THE RESULTS…ARE FREAKY…SO FREAKY I LIKE IT…THIS STUFF REALLY WORKS….

SO I DO IT BUY HAND….took a while but WELL worth it….then when I done the WHOLE CAR…I had only used 2 HAND TOWELS…can you believe that…only 2…I still have 14 left…!!!!!!

SO IM ON A ROLL HERE…I get a BONNET…then start all over again, with buffing…from the back to the front of the car. AND IT LOOKS AMAZING.

So I get done buffering …whip my face its 100 degrees in this garage! But I care about my car SOOO much…so I had a lot of will to get this done…

Back to the story, so I look at the bonnet…THE BONNET IS CLEAN…NO MELDEW..NO EXTRA WAX…I could still use this bonnet again…OH GREAT…

Then I just make the finish finishing touchs…that's me falling in love with my BANANA BOAT…AGAIN…

IT LOOKS BETTER THAN WHEN I FIRST GOT HER…im goin to cry in need some time ALONE…

BLACK MAGIC SYNTHETIC WAX…gets a 10 out of 10 for ME…the best I have seen, and witnessed, and a lot better than the Maguires NXT PASTE, trust me im a DIE HARD MAGUIRES FAN…but I cant doubt the truth…I hope everyone learned from this…here are some pictures for you all…

AND IN CASE YOU ALL ARE WONDERING…

WHAT THE HELL DID I STAY UP THIS LATE ON A THURSDAY FOR..

I DON'T WORK Fridays, SATURDAYS, SUNDAYS. Just MON-THURS. I work for Gov. but I make my own schedule.

Plus I didn't want to do this on FRIDAY . and waste my Friday night, I have a NOVA MEET-n-GREET to attend.

Hope this helped you all who was on the market for WAX.

PICTURES ARE AS FOLLOWS:

Looks good, man.

WIth the Black Magic, what is the "active ingredient" in there? You mentioned that you left it on the car for a few hours...is it acrylic based?
Reason I ask is that I did my wife's Magnum a week ago. I use the Klasse system..and they have this acrylic glaze that is easier to take off the longer it stays on. I put 2 coats of the glaze on...and left each on for a day ( I feel ya on the garage sauna...when I was doing my wife's, I had to keep wiping sweat marks off the car as I was detailing
).

Great job! The car looks amazing! And I thought I was the only one that waxes their car in the middle of the night. It's too hot in the day to do any kind of work on the car.

:banana: Looks hawt man!!! :banana: Nothing like a freshly waxed lady (car that is) ;)

One thing ... you said you "I put a good amount on my car. I wanted to see this wax on the car GOOD."... but actually the trick to any of these new waxes is less is better. One ounce should do your entire car (I know from doing my Magnum this is true with Zaino). Yes do multiple coats, but not a thick coat at once. The two are totally different. Too much wax would account for why you were going through bonnets.

I agree on the waxed lady point......car or not
Not all produts are designed to be applied in multiple coats, make sure what you're using is designed for that, I know that you're using Zaino Russ and that's perfect for that product, but I don't know if the Black Magic is supposed to be used in multiple coats. I've seen some waxes get cloudy if multiple coats are applied.

Sorry should have been more specific. I would say any of the new polymer waxes 'should' be able to have muliple coats put on.... BUT even then you should wait a few hours between coats, because polymers take a while to set up and bond. The trick is, once you have buffed.... leave it alone, because touching up areas disturbs the polymers from setting up :)

And, yes, I agree with the fresh waxing bit too... i was tryng to be politically correct .... ya ya i know a first for me!!! :friday:

Ahhhh, so restful! It is almost an alpha state mental condition when I really get into it!

You gotta right to be proud!

Sup everyone,

I want to thank everyone for the comments, I also typed this for a review, for those on the market, because when i was on the market it was hard to know what was a "GOOD" wax, so from personal expericance, this is only my second time waxing, but I want to help people as much as i can, and wax is very important to making a car look good. And tried to take some good pictures so they could see what this wax really does.

Rev. Hammer- I used the Black Magic ALL over the decals also, they look fantastic. and i left the was on that decals just as long as the wax on the car. It is ok on plastic spots, you know how when you wax, there is some areas, where you can help but to touch a lil, well all those areas came off perfectly but some areas i had to pull out the buffer, its not that easily removed.

Ryhmemaze- I will look into the "active ingredient" for you later when i also take a picture of my Escort for everyone...lol...

Jweezy
