I had now had some considerable success with this product - I have left the post below for prosperity. Please check out my later post for some positive comments. Thanks for the help, guys:

I now have Poorboys Black Hole in my armoury. This evening was okay ... overcast, but not raining; just a little damp. I picked my usual test panel (the boot on my wife's convertible ... I bought the product for her car, afterall) and stripped off whatever was on it with some Car-Lack68 NSC.
Surface prepped, I applied the Poorboys Black Hole glaze as per the instructions with a foam applicator and spread it thinly and evenly, neatening up the finish with some long strokes and then removed the product. I didn't see a need to let it dwell, but I'll take advice on that. While applying, it left little pin-prick dots on the paint that smeared when rubbed ... you know, like Meg's #21 or #26. I removed the product and then buffed, but the finish was not good - neutered and actually milky on some angles
I buffed some more and then applied some Meg's Speed Detailer QD and rubbed/buffed some more.
The finish was not good - when I breathed on the paint, the condensation left a very strange pattern where I could see all the striations in the paint. Undeterred, I proceeded to add a wax - I though Chemical Guys/DW Wet Wet Wet Wax would be the most compatible, to see if that lifted the finish. It made it worse
I know how Chemical Guys/DW Wet Wet Wet Wax can make that car look and it was certainly problematic due to the glaze.
I started again ... Car-Lack68 NSC and applied the Poorboys Black Hole with a terry applicator and got much the same result, if a little worse. The foam applicator is the way to go with this product (well, it does say so
Wondering if my paint was the problem, I cleansed again
Gotta love Car-Lack68 NSC
I then applied Einszett Waxpolish Soft and was left with a lovely deep sheen. I then popped some Clearkote Carnauba Wax on (which I like on top of the Einszett glaze, which is a glaze despite it being called a "polish") and the glossy, slick finish was all there.
So ... I have a problem with Poorboys Black Hole. It doesn't want to play nice with me, or my car's paint which is single stage, BTW. I had assumed it was a colour-charged glaze with fillers and so would work quite happily with single stage as well as clearcoat.
What have I done wrong? How can I improve my technique? Hints and tips
, please guys
