I think the best advice on black is proper drying method. I suggest the waffle weave microfiber drying towels from detailedimage. I recommend using 2-3 each time you dry. The best drying method for black is actually air drying...but we all know that means spots. So try the sheeting method to get as much water as possible off the surface. Then I suggest let it dry in the shade/garage as much as possible and then go over it with the MF waffle weave towels. Also be careful with microfiber towels and quick detailer.....use lots of towels and turn to reach side each time it gets dirty. I dont recomend the clay bar unless you have a DA polished to remove the swirls/light scratches that it will put on the surface of the clear. Just a few tips for black trucks....maybe I will think of more later....

I use the absorber on mine to dry.. gets all the water spots off real quick and if i miss any it cleans them up with one lil swipe

Absorber FTW !!! It's one of the best I have ever used makes drying so much easier

the absorber traps dirt at the surface and keeps it there. That makes swirls etc.
