Hey, if anyone's interested, I detail cars and have been a user of Zaino for over 10 yrs. - if anyone has a question or needs help, shoot me a PM or e-mail and I'd be glad to help.

I use Zaino on my current car, the RX-8, and absolutely love it. Will be using it when I get the Camaro.

Going to order a kit as soon as the redwing game is over.

Is the bucket a good investment???

Yes, get the bucket, it is discounted when you place your order... I love it... great for storage and has a device in it to separate the sediment from the water so you don't get grime and dirt on your wash rag.

I just bought a black Jeep Grand Cherokee and I am interested in trying zaino out. Please tel me which package I should start out with. I'll go back and read this thread from beginning to end but any extra advice would be great since I may not have the time to read it all and digest it that quickly. Perhaps a link to the best posts that already have this answered Thanks..

So I got my Zaino the other day... can't wait to try it out! The only problem is I'm still waiting on the towels I ordered from DF Concours. I thought I read people waiting a while for them, anyone have any insight?

pretty much just call up your credit card company and get your money back. There is a link to another site in that thread that also sells the towels.

Those towels look good, but I thought I read somewhere on their site that only white towels should be used?

Would this be a good wash mitt to use? I was thinking about ordering a 3-pack of them.

Buying the ZKIT-2 with bucket and towels when I get my car. Maybe by then the towels will be added to the package.

They said to use white because normally you can only find white or color towels and the dyes used to color towels is bad for the paint. From the pics, these towels appear to be made out of unrefined cotton (which is naturally a light brown or blonde color) that hasn't be bleached yet to make white so they'll be just as good as white.

That's awesome Hugger. I did some extensive searching and the best price I could find INCLUDING SHIPPING was $13.57 at www.usplastic.com if anybody is interested. Just go to that site and do a search for "Grit Guard". This saves me good money because even with the $10 discount from Zaino (if you buy a kit), the bucket with guard is still ~$24, right? I'll just add this to my existing bucket and get pretty much the same thing for a lot less. Good stuff!
