Re: zaino

how thin of a coat do you apply rob. Do you put a thin line of the pad and spread it on the pad with your finger then do an entire panel with that amount. Tell me how you apply it?

the zcs........its a very thin liquid IIRC.....

i used a pad. i spray it directly on the jeep one little spritz goes along way.

i bought a bunch of zaino when i bought my jeep, august 2007. I have not finished one item except the final detail spray cause I broke the top and it leaked out.....

Re: zaino

I can only recommend products I have personally used. I am not one for reading something on an internet forum and basing my opinion on that. I like to use the products myself. I have never used the Zaino...but the prices always deterred me. But it seems the prices have come down some.
I can without a shadow of a doubt say the current combo Im using is the best i have used. My jeep has made it through this winter and I still have a good layer of protectant on. I use the combo of Meguiers #21 sealant and P21s carnuaba.(multiple coats of each) I will add the p21s can be used on moldings etc. as well.

Re: zaino

It very good, but I can't say it's better than Meguiar's gold class products, especially for the price.

Re: zaino

Zaino is the absolute best in the world. Theres no question about that.

That said, although I used to use it, I don't anymore. Its just too much work and takes too much time. My Trans Am I used to show, so it was worth the time and work. The Jeep is a street truck. I don't show it, so truthfully, its not worth the crazy amount of time and energy it takes to properly layer Zaino.

On the Jeep I've been using Spongetech, in the rain. No hose, no bucket, no drying, almost no work. Wax? Run it through the CarWash and spend the $3 for the triple wax.

Re: zaino

I preferred the Z1 to the ZFX, So I started with Z1, then Z5, Z6, Z5, Z6, Z5, Z6, Z2, Z6, Z2, etc. Need another coat of Z1 every 10 coats of polish, or it won't layer right. Z7 washes in between. I had over 100 coats of Z5/Z2 on the T/A. Was worth it though; the car was a mirror.

Re: zaino

wow thats alot of coats man. I usually only do 3 with the z5 z2 and using z6. They dont sell z1 anymore? btw, They dont have anything that is like a polish that removes swirls and imperfections in the paint with a porter cable or a cutting compound to remove paint imperfections. Why do you think that is?

Re: zaino

They don't have anything with abrasives. Sal Zaino recommends a 3M product for swirl removal. Perfect-It, Foam Polishing Pad Glaze, either for dark colors or light colors, depending on your car color.

I didn't know they stopped selling Z1. That sucks. Now theres no option besides the ZFX.

Re: zaino

I just used the 2 coats of zaino z5 on my jeep. The paint is super slick and wet looking. My hand slipped off the door when I was trying to close it today, Im not sure if I can switch to trying something else as far as sealants after today.

Re: zaino

all the guys on the Charger forum used to rave about Zaino. I never got a chance to use it on mine... but there were the odd gripes about price...
