Great stuff for all dark cars. The paint just pops
ProsEasy on off
Works Very Well!
November 29, 2020
This product is so great to work with, easy on - easy off! No hard rubbing, no oily residue. I apply with my Flex and a black foam pad, do 2-3 panels and then go back and buff off, a couple of light wipes and you have a mirror-like finish. The main reason I bought this is my wife insists on driving black vehicles but she is NOT a "car guy" and doesn't take care of them like we do. Since she leases I don't want to be correcting the paint every few months, plus I hate to put in more effort than I need to (hey, life's short). This product works great! It covers 90% of the swirls, etc in just one pass using a black finishing pad. In the pics below you can see a before and after just 1 quick pass. In the other pic you can see her car after polishing, glazing with Poorboys Black Hole, and a coat of Wolfgang sealant, it's an amazing difference for an afternoon's work. And now her car is ready for winter. I have a custom painted "toy" vehicle that I want to look 99% all the time, using this product allows me to get there without excess paint correction. I'm a hobbyist, so I can get the paint to ~97-98% perfect, this allows me to go the rest of the way, plus it really adds a deep, dark wet look even to black paint in excellent condition that doesn't have swirls.
ProsEasy to Use No oily residue Does what it says it will do

After spending hours correcting the paint of my brilliant black S4 I was looking for the final touch to really make the paint pop. I'd tried CG Blacklight, and it was okay, but didn't offer the filling capabilities I was looking for (which makes sense, since it's not a glaze.) I decided to order this and it ended up being back ordered. I asked Autogeek if they could just send me the 32oz and invoice me for the difference, and instead they just sent it for no extra charge! That was awesome. First tried applying it by hand, I didn't really get the results I was looking for. Decided to use a Lake Country Black pad, and that's the ticket. Filled in the most minor scratches I wasn't able (or didn't want to) remove from the paint, and after a coat of wax the black paint really has that "dive in" depth I was wanting. Longevity still is up in the air as I haven't really drove much in the last 6 months so it hasn't been exposed to the weather, but it still looks as good as when I applied it. Even if it doesn't last terribly long, the 32 ounces should last me years.
ProsSmell (I think it smells like grape) Added pop Good filling capabilities Ease of application/removal
ConsSeems to separate kind of quickly, so make sure to shake it well before using
Best glaze I've ever seen
July 10, 2019
Look at the pictures. Seeing is believing. I've seen several arguments back and forth regarding glazes. Some people hate them, saying it doesnt correct paint, just hides the imperfections and swirls. They are not wrong. But, unless your car is a garage queen that hardly ever has anything touch the paint...swirls and scratches are inevitable. Some paints hide them better. Dark colors are completely unforgiving. Black shows scratches if you breathe on it too hard. Are you going to perform a paint correction on your black car every month? Every 3 months? How long before you don't have any clear coat left? That's where glazes come in. They are non abrasive, gentle on paint, some like poorboys can clean the paint, they fill in medium to light swirls, and add a lot of gloss. In short, they can give the appearance of correct paint. They are also very easy to apply and in the case of Blackhole, can be done by hand. Blackhole is the best filling glaze I've ever seen, even by hand. But with used with a a dual action and a foam/microfiber pad....wow. If you want to make it last, poorboys is compatible with sealants and I top it with Wolfgang Deep Gloss Sealant. The result is a black that is miles deep and blinding gloss.
ProsInexpensive Easy to use Fantastic filling properties Great depth and gloss

I rarely give 5 stars even if a product should get one. This is probably best glaze I have used

My go to glaze
June 24, 2018
Really great glaze to knock those light swirl marks down or skipping a polish. Hand or machine, I prefer hand myself, it can get kinda sticky when it gets too thin on the product. I've used a 16 oz on my truck with about 6 applications, so it goes a long way. I don't order the larger size because I only use about three times a year when I do a detailed protection. Top it off with a carnauba wax for that warm glow, then a synthetic sealant for a longer durable coating.
ProsEasily spread product Hand or machine Darkens the paint easy off product
Consmight need more elbow power to spread not durable Can be used in sun, in Texas summer that is a no

THIS 2010 CAD DTS LIMO WAS LOOKING A LITTLE DOWN WHEN SHE SHOWED UP IN THE SHOP AFTER FORMING AND 2 BUCKET WASHING AND AFTER THE POLISHING I TRYED BLACK HOLE SHOW GLAZE USING A BLACK SOFT PAD ON PC AT 3 THERE WAS BIG INPOVEMENT....GOOD STUFF FOR BLACK
ProsIT SMELLS GOOD WHEN YOU ARE USE ING IT
ConsNOT FOR HAND ITS TO THICK TO WORK BY HAND, NOT THAT YOU CANT JUST TAKES LONGER AND IN DETAILING TIME IS MONEY
April 28, 2015
Good product, must admit have not given it a good try, I am still learning but the couple of times I have used it, it does cover swirls and light scratches. I think as I get better at applying it I might get better results.
ProsSmells great, easy application.
ConsHaven't gotten technique down just yet.
Yes, it really works
November 3, 2014
I'm impressed with this product. One of my cars is "Root Bear Metallic" and the other is black. This product is great on both of them. I use it after a very light swirl remover and follow up with a hard wax.
ProsEasy to use, works great, not too expensive; i.e. perfect.
ConsIt smells like some kind of tropical fruit. I expected it to smell like fish. Perhaps they were thinking about Steven Hawking rather than Nicki Minaj when they named this product.
Black Paint's Best Friend
October 2, 2014
This is an excellent product. I have tried the 3M machine glaze for dark vehicles and there is no comparison. Black Hole is so much easier to work with and produces an order-of-magnitude better result. Used it on a new black 4Runner that the dealer must have put through a rubber paddle wash. It hid the fine swirl marks extremely well, making the paint look very wet and new.
ProsRewarding! Brilliant Black results Nice smell Reasonably priced
ConsNot a polish so swirls will eventually reappear.
Black hole is a winner
September 19, 2013
This is by far the most effective glaze I have Tried. Works wonders on my BMW. Outstanding at removing minor imperfections on the paint surface. Excellent price point. Ships same day in most cases.
January 25, 2013
This is one of the better glaze's I've used to date. It hides swirls well, and the overall appearance is great. Unfortunately, I don't have a dark-colored car anymore. Otherwise, I would still use this all the time!
November 26, 2012
Great on my Envious Solstice! Easy on and off application and the grape(?) scent is a conversation starter. My son's metallic red GP REALLY glowed with this stuff.
Hides minor swirls
November 20, 2011
This glaze does a nice job of hiding minor swirls and adding depth to the paint. It has a thick consistency, so it takes a lot of effort to apply by hand. Recommend using a DA machine for the job. Also, if you're not careful, it will leave behind a chalky residue in cracks and crevices.
Too lazy to polish?
May 18, 2011
then this glaze is for you. I applied it with a black pad and DA then topped with natty blue. Nice deep shine. have yet to try out tip from the forum where you let the PBBH haze but don't wipe it off. Instead, apply your natty's blue right on top, let it haze, then wipe everything off together. Can't wait to try it out.

I almost decided to skip the Black Hole Glaze step after polishing, but tried it on a small section. Wow, it really deepened the black on my Acura MDX! Needless to say I finished the whole car with it (applied with PC) before sealing with EX-P. This is amazing stuff!

EASY TO USE AND THE FINISH IS SOFT AND SMOOTH. WORTH EVERY PENNY. I FEEL SORRY FOR THE COMPETITION...THE SHINE SAYS IT ALL
August 22, 2008
Its a good glaze works good for removing flaws. It works best when used by machine or at least a polishing pal, but is ok by hand

awesome on black cars

This stuff is truly amazing. It covers minor scratches and swirls, and left a deep, deep shine that mirrors amazingly.

I have a few dealer ships that I detail for. I was having a hard time with wax's and seal's showing back up on dark color cars. I tried a small sample of The black hole. The Stuff is f-ing awsome. Can be used on red cars and any dark car. Thanks, James Guy
