So my bike was looking a bit shabby on the tank thanks to careless previous owners.

The only real solution is a respray I think.

But as a quick fix I thought Id try the TURTLE WAX BLACK BOX kit, and have photo'd the process as a before and after exercise.

Heres what you get in the box:
TURTLE WAX BLACK BOX Turtle-wax-black-box-fg6357_5018358
A pre cleaner
A detailer spray
two microfibre cloths
A small white cloth
A sponge wax applicator.
A black carnauba wax


The images in sequence are:

1)  ORIGINAL 

2)  PRE CLEAN APPLIED

3) DETAILER AFTER PRE CLEAN

4)  CARNAUBA APPLIED

5)  DEATILER AFTER CARNAUBA

TURTLE WAX BLACK BOX Origin12
TURTLE WAX BLACK BOX Precle11
TURTLE WAX BLACK BOX Detail11
TURTLE WAX BLACK BOX Carnau11
TURTLE WAX BLACK BOX Finish11

Verdict? Its OK, rather than brilliant. At least you don't get the powdery white residue which seems to cling to the black paint, as you get with something like ordinary autoglym.

I guess I was hoping the black tint in the products would fill the tiny scratches, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

I got it on special offer from Euro Parts with a discount code for about £14. Glad I didn't pay much more!!

It seems a bit counter intuitive as well to rub on a carnauba wax, then almost clean that off with the detailer spray! But thats what the instructions say :)

PS, no, Im not keeping the yellow gaffer tape seat mod!

Looks good Mal! Did the car with a similar process using Maguires, that carnauba wax gives a great shine but doesn't seem hard wearing, maybe the detailing spray seals it in better?  TURTLE WAX BLACK BOX 2170595768

Quite  marked difference there Mal - worth the effort, and it keeps you out of the house and from under Ali's feet. 
I've got a shitload of G3 shampoo, detailing, claybar, rubbing paste, high gloss polish etc etc your welcome to have a try with Mal.  Also got some Autoglym HG polish for dark colours - that's pretty good also.
