Cleaner for Black rubber on bumper and doors as well as wax?

What does everyone use to bring the high gloss out form the black door bumpers?

I heard there was something called "Black Magic" or something like that?

What's the best stuff to pick up?

Anyone recommend any specific wax? How about Meguire's Gold Class???

Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks a lot!

Definitely. It works if you're trying to get out the white residue that wax leaves behind. Would be much easier if you mask off the moldings though.

I used Back to Black. Works great-Not sure who makes it though.

They sell it everywhere though.

Thanks for the tips guy's.

How about wax?

DeZeptaKon, you're talking about a cleaner for the chrome, I was talking about a cleaner / polisher for the black door jam mouldings.

Thanks alot

I'm using One Grand Blitz Wax presently. I've heard good things about Zaino Brothers. Might also want to look at Griot's Garage products.
