    Looking good! I particularly like the interior's transformation. Nice shine, I noticed you used the more entry level wax, deep crystal carnauba wax. Goes to show that with the right tools and process, anyone can get great results even without the newest, fanciest synthetic wax/sealant and with no streaks. I used Deep Crystal carnauba before, I've had some streaking issues with it, but on dark paints, it has incredible depth and water beading as well.

    Great work

    The black paint looks awesome.

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    I've needed to use this up before it goes bad. I also need to repurchase some more Hi-Tech Yellow Wax. Still looking to pick up the new Black Wax and also Ultimate Wax. I've never had any streaking issues with it. It's usually so thin I can never see if I even put it on, lol. A lot of times I'll use the finger swipe to make sure something is there.

    Durabilty may not be its strongest suit, but the I still vividly remember how much darker and wetter our black SUV became, even without the any pure polish or paint cleaner... Maybe I should give this wax another shot... I also have M07 Show Car Glaze, I have a love-hate relationship with it... It can be tricky to use, but with enough patience, it does a give a different, richer, wetter look. I've used it successfully on black paint and even silver paint. It seems to bring out whatever character paint has. On silver and metallics, it brings out the flake even more, on warm paint (reds/maroons/red micas) it makes it look even wetter or redder, on blacks, it's even more incredible. Paint becomes a lot darker, blacker, richer and wetter... this is with NXT 2.0, which I feel doesn't have the same rich look as DC carnauba..
