    The key word is better. No product will look like total dog poop on one color and shine like gold on another or anything like that! LOL. It's just some products stand out more on different colors. Here is another good example. Here is this pic we have Klasse on Black, To me although the picture is spectacular, it is too reflective for me,

    But, here is Clearkote on Black. Much deeper and much wetter,

    Now if someone asked me what looks better on Black, I would say Clearkote. Yet, Klasse looks deep and wet on other colors.

    You just need about 20+ product lines to play with! LOL

    "Poorboys Polish w/carnauba topped with Poorboys Natty/s Wax. Looks real deep on White"

    Thank You NXGHOST - this is exactly what I wanted to know.

    Beautiful Cobra!


    That black hood pic with the tree - Twilight zone :D
    Too much blinng IMO.
    If you stare at it for a while, you get kinda dizzy.


    So, for the poorboys stuff - anyone have a good place to order it from?
    Thanks!

    it wont be long and i'll be selling my own private label products. as long as my cars/products win trophies on any color, i'll stick with what i got ;) like i said earlier, find one that "you" like to use on "your" car and go with it :thumb:

    the polishes and waxes you mentioned are all excellent, quality products. im not putting any of them down, i just dont agree with the whole "color" thing. you take the black car with ClearKote and park it under the same tree in the same light and you'll have the same result :dunno: thats my .02

    Deep, glossy, reflective, etc. FTW!!!

    I guess there is no point arguing on the whole color thing. Most dont notice the difference. Its purely subjective. As far as private labeling there is a lot involved. It's a lot of work especially if you want to be insured. Selling chemicals under your own name is very involved. All it takes is one idiot to drink it, or ruin his car by using it improperly and your done. I once was 90% into labeling my own product and the stress make us throw in the towel. Marketing is also very expensive, its takes toooo long for a product to get popular by word of mouth. Lastly, the profit margin is very low if you plan on selling to distributors. Selling already popular brands at retail is the way to go! Good luck either way! If it's a good product contact me ;) I own Canada's largest auto detailing store :naughty:

    I got my ClearKote stuff thru NXGHOST's online store and I know he sells Poorboys www.eshine.ca but it is a Canadian store. Great guy to deal with though I think im going to stick with him for most detailing stuff for sure unless I can get it locally.

    Thanks Matt. I can assure you won't find my products locally. I am the Canadian importer of 90% of my products. I don't distribute, we just sell off the webpage!

    P.S. I have to add your pics of the Lazer Red on our rotating front page!
