Hi Erinc... congrats first on your new arrival.


As far as what T (T=TCrazy) and I use on our cars... its Zaino. You can buy the stuff online at http://www.zainostore.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc.

I used a lot of the Zaino products and had multiple applications of it on my car. One main reason was that I had used some other stuff and it ended up leaving swirls & spider webs on my car.

There's already a thread in the cleaning & car care forum about Zaino... http://www.yoursciontc.com/forums/index.ph...wtopic=750&st=0. You may try to read through that for more info. The Zaino website also includes detailed instructions on how to care for your car...

Yes... if you spend over 25 dollars... they will send you a free applicator. I think getting a Z5 just in case is a good idea since they charge a $9 flat fee (I think) for shipping and handling. I ended up ordering almost two of everything, cause I got a set for my hubby too.

Zaino is the best. Another layer this weekend!
For real. I'm up to three coats, with a squirt of z-6 before and after each coat.

Bring on that damn winter weather!

Ok... quick summary with no details....

wash ur car first.... dry it... then apply Z1... once u got Z1 on... u can apply a coat of Z5 on top of that (if you need it that is... not everyone need Z5 at this point)... then let it dry all the way.... then remove it... then apply a coat of Z2... let it dry... then remove it...

If you don't need Z5... then just do a coat of Z2... and u can repeat it so u have a couple layers on.

You need to give it time before you put on multiple coats of Z5/Z2. Hit up the Z1, apply Z5 or Z2 over it, let it dry, then remove with a towel. After that, you can put a coat of Z6 on, then wait until at least the next day for any more Z2 or Z5.
