FULL DETAIL OF A BLACK CAR | A Detailer's Nightmare

1 jun 2019
2 117 316 Vistas

In this video I do a Full Detail of this black 2016 Lincoln MKZ all while being thankful I don't own a black vehicle anymore, showing you all the steps needed to properly and safely detail a black car! I do a full interior and exterior clean and detail of the MKZ!
As much as I love the look of a freshly detailed black vehicle, for a perfectionist like me it's like a living nightmare trying to finish with the car....I turn my back and it's got dust all over it!

  • I agree with you about black paint, I also used to own a black charger and it was a pain to keep clean, but you can't argue after a good wash and wax that the mirror finish is satisfying 😍

    • Yep black vehicles get dirty very easily, while white vehicles, its hard to tell when they need a wash.

  • I own a 2012 LIncoln MKZ, and I was wondering how did you clean the front seats? I am just afraid of getting a liquid (APC, Leather Conditioner etc) into the holes on the seat (where the cooled/heating seats mechanism sits) and I don't want to ruin it.

  • I feel you on the dark colors.. lol my husband always had white trucks, and I have always had dark blue cars, and he was used to washing his trucks, but then when he would go hand wash mine.. I’d still have to go over it or take it to a car wash drive through because he would leave soo many streaks. It drove me crazy😂 now I have a white crossover and he has a dark blue truck.. So NOW he learns to wash dark colors!! Lmao 🙄🤦🏻‍♀️🤣

  • I have a 2015 that looks just like that one. I keep it immaculate. It’s in a garage, so it doesn’t get exposed to the elements much. I will probably get it detailed in the Spring because of the leather interior. At my age, can’t do it myself. I love my Lincoln. 💕

  • Hi, ever tried Dodo Juice Super Natural Leather cleaner and Leather conditioner? Absolutely fabulous products. Spray the leather cleaner, use soft bristle brush, than wipe with damp towel. After few minutes of drying spray on the conditioner, wipe it with soft towel and it leaves beautiful, new like satin/matt finish to the leather. One con is, that the conditioner has a little acidic, vinegary smell to it, but only just for few hours, but I don´t find it any disturbing myself.

  • Hey so the other day i drove through some sticky black stuff in a construction area because it was the only way to my work. I think it was tar or something, not sure but they were redoing the road. If tried taking it off with gentle methods like washing and rubbing with a cloth, but im afraid to use force. Any ideas on how to get it off? Some people have suggested denatured alcohol which i havent gotten around to trying yet.
