Well guys...sorry for the delay... but for anyone who is still interested...here they are.

First pic shows zaino on the passenger stripe but not on the drivers stripe... subtle difference but wanted to point that out.

2nd Pic - Rear stripes before zaino.

3rd Pic - Z-2

4th Pic - Z-8 over Z-2

5th Pic - Zaino Haze (what it looks like after applying)

6th and 7th pics - Car with Z-2, Z-8, & Z-CS

8th pic - Rear stripes - zaino on left, nothing on right.

9th and 10th Pic - Zaino Tire Gloss Pics

Added 2 more at the end... one with Z-2, Z-8, Z-CS and

Last one was taken from the roof of my house :)

Looks great!

I love SIM (hence why my car looks exactly like yours...minus the polished wheels!)...but I was worried I'd not be able to get the paint to show any depth. Much like you, I've used Zaino on mine as well and it's a very nice, deep shine! Exactly what I was wanting!

Legend I gotta tell you man, I've seen every color on this car and SIM takes my breath away every time... no other color I'd rather have. It shows every little line of the beautiful body and the depth cannot be matched by ANY other color out there.

Added 2 more at the end for ya :)

If I had it to do over again?

ZAIO, Z8, ZCS and done!!!

Pretty sure they have a kit for that. Especially on lighter colored cars since you really can't tell the multiple coats like you can on the darker cars. I zaino'd my car 3 full coats of z-2/z-8 and it looked pretty much the same after every coat.

The pics above is one coat of z-2, one coat of z-8, and one final coat of Z-CS.

If my car was black (or dark), I'd still probably do the multiple coat route....

Yea, that one is steady becoming my favorite :)

Terrellford12 06-01-2009 11:20 AM

looks the same

tjd24 06-01-2009 11:26 AM

Embalmer - why wouldn't you use Z2 after the ZAIO and before the Z8? Doesn't the Z2 act as a polish while the Z8 is a finisher? Just curious... thanks.

Ummmmm :drool: .... Sweet car and pics, especially from the roof.

I hear you! Like in my write up on here I said the same thing...the color is about as perfect as can be!

The lines of the car show so well with SIM that you truely get the the whole feel for the exactly what GM wanted!

Looks sharp.

Zaino is a great product but u can get 90% of the look with otc products but not the durability thats the downside. Ive said this before technique and correct use of your tools and product is most important above all things. With Mothers, Turtle wax and Maguires products u can get a pretty dam good look on your cars if used correctly.

You certainly could do that however the ZAIO is pretty much a replacement for the Z-2 - or at least they say it can be.

If you don't want/need to put multiple coats on the car then I'd just go ZAIO and Z-6 or Z-8 with a final Z-CS and call it good.

I will probably move to that actually...

Wow the look is great. My issue is I have the darker IBM and have the need to use quick detailers and I read that Zaino suggests not using them because it removes the product. So I have used NXT and use the ultimate detailer for maintanence. The life of NXT is much shorter than Zaino but the application was reletavely easy and it gives me a chance to spend time loving my car! This is so much better than talking about our status codes and train tracking etc.
