Default where does black wax fall into the 3 steps?

next time i have some available time i am going to do a meguiars wax job.

my dad suggested getting a black wax to see if that helps out my extremely spider-cracked paint. where would this fit in in the meguiars 3 step system? does meguiars make a black wax? what other brands could i find this in?

or are there any other suggestions

here are pics from a previous thread showing the problems

I dont think meguiars has a black wax but I could be wrong as for where it would fit in where do you normally do the waxing might be wrong on that one also though an black wax wouldnt help to much with some of them I woudlnt think "capable of hiding light scratches"

only black product that i know of is turtle wax black POLISH......i used it on a couple black cars and NEVER AGAIN!

your best bet would be investing in a random orbital polisher and get some PROFESSIONAL line Megs stuff......you will most likely need a nice cleaner, and a pretty agressive polish. top with any wax you like (but there would be no need for a CLEANER WAX).....just get something like megs NXT or gold class.........

so basically........its gonna be a full days project........i guess i'd even start with a clay bar, then cleaner, then polish, then at least 1 coat of wax

Any of the Black wax'* suck. They are for a car dealer and not for your own personal vehicle. It last maybe a few days and doesnt really do all that much. Dont waste your time or money. Buy the Meguiars cleaner/wax you'll be alot happier.
