Hello all,

I've owned a silver Toyota Camry for about 7 years now and for those of you with silver vehicles know you can spend about 3-4 hours detailing and polishing and waxing and your silver still looks the same. Recently my wife found a 2015 Honda Accord that she fell in love with. The only problem is its black. I've never owned a black car and even our salesman said good luck keeping it clean. After reading all over the forums here as well as on other detailer websites I'm totally lost and just need some advice as to the direction I should go with getting this car to look its best.

As for some additional information I plan to use the two bucket method with a MF wash mitt. I've heard I should use multiple towels to dry it especially on the lower half and around wheels due to picking up rocks and road grim that weren't washed away during the washing portion.

After washing I intend to clay it but this is where I'm stuck. I plan to either use UC, or swirl X (not quite sure if I want to jump right to UC or baby steps with swirl X). I'll follow the clay and compound with a polish and finally a wax (most likely UW). I will be applying almost everything with my GG6.

This car is a daily driver and I'll probably use some type of quick detailer or quick wax in between washes to keep that deep glow that black cars are capable of giving off.

Any advice offered will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

First off welcome to the forum glad to have you join us.

Can't offer any advice as it appears you have all bases covered... sounds like you have experience and the ability to get the job done. Would love to see before & after pictures once job is completed.

Black cars are beautiful when they have a deep rich shine... they are a b!tch to keep them that way... takes a lot of work/effort but well worth the reward.
