Colour magic uses a similar principle and in my opinion is a really good polish/wax.

Just no one uses it because it isn't expensive or fashionable.

Sy you should contact them and recommend they repackage and add a zero to their asking price and say you'll have 10% of any increased profit as your fee.

I'm not sure that I fully understand how this type of product is supposed to work. Surely the modern paint system means that there is an outer clear 'shell' of laquer so the paint colour is below this surface. I guess it just gives the impression that the colour has been 'restored'.?

Colour Magic I imagine works like a filler product but with a dye too which would mask defects in the paint. I always thought it worked pretty well, especially if it was sealed with something on top like autoglym extra gloss protection

I have used a few of these colour polishes. I have for my sins a yellow car and do have a colour polish for it. I can't even remember the name. It's OK I guess.

The one featured here looks pretty good. Can't remember if they catered for yellow paint but I know Colour Magic don't.

Apart from this being able to fill scratches and now wash off in like 2 weeks there is another side to it to add a tint to your car without being perminent. would be really good for shows and such. And i think he can basiclally do any colour you wanted. I am getting another mystery colour getting sent out so its going on the silver 147 to see how much of a tint goes onto the paintwork

Sounds good . I can vouch that yellow is a hard colour to match. A semi permanent tint might help me !

I agree.

Dark coloured cars that have seen a fair bit of action on the scratch and chip front can look bloody awaful if you go over them with traditional "white" polishes and waxes. It makes the wounds stick out like a sore thumb.

Just an update on this.

As the weather was nice I washed my Black Golf, applied Black colour magic and then went over it again with Collinite 446.

I haven't got any pictures as the light was fading but it looks stunning.

Colour magic is brilliant and underrated IMO. Poorboys Black hole is good as well.
