Lot of the guys swear by Poorboys. Great products and very good prices. Don't know condition of the paint or what tools you have.

But I would first wash. Then clay bar the whole vehicle, probably a lot of contaminants. Then a swirl remover on a PC, Followed by Poorboys Black Hole Glaze on the PC. Lastly a polish or wax. Really hard to give you a definitive answer without seeing the vehicle and knowing what you have to work with.

that is a cool car, If It were mine I would invest in a poorboys world porter cable kit from detailcity.com as all that you would really need would be contained in the kit. I would add to this purchase a tub of natty's red. It looks like you are in a rough part of town. TD

you have many options, but if you have thin paint be careful polishing by machine. You would want to use chemical polish vs a mechanical stay away from cutting pads if you do use a machine ... you will also want to use a glaze and then top it with wax/and or a sealant


life is short ..do it while you can

Poorboy's Polish with Carnauba - Blue is my favorite all in one for black paint. It works great by hand or machine. Top with Poorboy's EX or Natty's Blue Paste Wax for an even better look and protection.

I should tell you.

The Marauder is a show car.
It's rare therefore it goes to alot of shows.

I would LOVE to get a show car detail on it. Any tips on how to get the paint great is welcome.
I can already see I am in the right place for this.

I agree on all parts here but I would add PB...black hole after the P-w-C...black paint is going to have swirls no matter what and the glaze will fill those in and add a bunch of POP!!

Good advice.

I also agree that this just might be the perfect situation for a glaze followed by a wax. (That is following the appropriate paint cleaning prep work already mentioned).

Locally available:
Mother's claybar system
ClayMagic claybar system
Either will do the job.
Meguiar's has a clay product also on local shelves, but I have not used it.

Stand by with a bottle of QD and a MF towel.
