Wink Black car paint care tips

So we just added a new member to our Monte family. The fiancÚ just purchased a black on black 07 ss. To go along with my 97 z34, the 04 ss. I'm bringing it in to get waxed Tom. And was wundering if anyone had any tips for what product works the best/ how to keep it looking amazing. I usually use meguires ultimate I think it's called(black bottle, box) thanks for any help guys! Were looking to do a photo shoot this weekend with all the babies lol

Do you have a random orbital buffer? It's basically a necessity with black paint.

I like to use the Meguiar's big 3.

Ultimate Compound -> Scratch-X Polish -> NXT tech 2 wax.

i use high speed buffer too at my shop with a combination of wool and foam pads. Always keep a good coat of wax on it and that will help alot.
