September 29, 2004I like to use Meguiar's three step wax kit. The first one is a cleaner that removes chemicals, the second one is a polish, then the third is their badass wax. It works good on my Dodge, but now that I have a dent in the bed, huge paint peeling spots on my hood and roof (thanks to Dodge's great idea to galvanize all body parts in '97) and a bunch of little dings, I don't care much for my paint anymore. I am fixing to get it repainted, possibly in a John Deere paint scheme, complete w/ 360 hood stickers, yellow accessories, and yellow racing stripes. (probably next summer.)
The Meguiar's complete kit (three different bottles) will run you about $20, and then maybe another $10 for stuff like terry towels and wax pads.
Hope this helps, It is really good stuff, and since yours is black you definately need to protect it.
found the names of the stuff on meguiars.com
