clean black?

How do you all make your black trucks looks so good? i have tried every kind of car was and wax on the market and my truck never reallly looks great. In the sun you can still see the swirl marks and it makes me angry. so im open to anyone opinions on how to keep your truck in tip top shape and what your process is that you use.

TIA,
Trip

And yes I right up until this past summer my truck was buffed regularly, but had a spot of rust come threw over the rear tire so it didn't get buffed but you can bet when our body man gets time to fix the rust and repaint the silver on the bottom he WILL be buffing the truck.

Re: clean black?

what is a good price for someone to wax and buff a truck?
