What do you do to keep your black shiny and swirl free? Just want to see what others are doing when they wash and dry...
thanks

I use MR Clean auto dry wash so I don't have to hand dry it, then every 3 months or so I use Zymol. And at least once a week I use a Quick spray on detailer. So far so good. Just a pain in the ass to do it, takes for ever.

Be careful with that mr clean detergent, its strips the wax quick. I use the mr clean's mist feature only, filters the water, then i dry off by hand...:2cents:

I bought some microfiber towels today. I use a chamois for windows, but that seems like too much friction for the paint. I took the SS to the dealer today and their scratch doctor took out 4 scratches I had that I discovered after bringing it home. that man is a genious, best of all it was free. I hate dirty cars, but I hate swirls even more. I'll look into the suggested products and techniques.
Thanks as always...

Eagle One Nano Wax is the shit!!! This is my second black Trailblazer so believe me, I have tried lots of other products. When a very good friend of mine, who owns a black SUV showed me what Nano wax can do, I promise I will never use anything else.

I saw this new spray at auto zone this weekend and picked it up for 10 bucks and I have to say SHIT this was the best stuff from meguiares spray line ever loved the results left the paint smooth and you can spray some on the glass and leaves no streaks so I strongly recomends this:coolthumb:

I own an 07 Tahoe as well and it is white. The 07 truck I just traded in for the SS was white as well. Nothing is easier and was REALLY close to continuing the tradition but the black screams "I'm badass".
That and my Z28 was black as well as the Impala we had so this isn't my first rodeo with black cars....I'm just more anal these days.

I have to agree black, behind white of course, is the best color this truck comes in. I can't wait to see what the new black looks like.

Sounds like a JJ problem.
