So I'm about ready to try my new Zaino stuff...

Got the stuff in yesterday.. About ready to start on the wife's Jeep Liberty Renegade... It hasn't been waxed in about 5 yrs... lol.. and its black.. I am dreading this.... Gonna clay bar and all that...

Anybody that uses the z-5 stuff on black, how many coats did you have to use for light swirls,scratches, etc..?

I lost count of the coats of Zaino on my SS a looong time ago...(gotta be close to 100...if not more)

I'd start out with 2 coats of Z5 followed by a coat of Z2..(you can do only up to 3 coats in a 24 hr. period)..and see how it looks. You can "layer" as many coats of Z5 as you feel necessary...I always end up with a coat of Z2.

***MAKE SURE TO USE THE PROPER TOWELS IN REMOVAL! IF NOT, YOUR WORK IS FOR NAUGHT***

Alright, ended up doing the zaino on the jeep yesterday. I only put on two coats of z-5 on since I was running out of time. Between the coats I did the z-6. I can say that the stuff works awesome! The only problem I had was that the first coat wasn't dry enough to wipe down and left me with some streaks in some spots. I used some of the accelerator which called for 4-5 drops per once. I did 4 drops. I suppose I'll let it dry for an hour next time. It was kinda humid and in the 60's outside. Now the question for the Zaino masters out there- for this size vehicle, how much of zaino z-5 should have been used for two coats? I ended up using right at one once.. Two little? Too much?
Oh yeah, the Jeep was riddled with all sorts of swirls and light scratches... Z-5 did hide a lot of it!

With my envoy (which i think Might be a little larger than your jeep) used two ounces with 8 drops.i put three coats on and still had about a quarter left in the bottle when i was done.I try to make the coats as thin as possible.in 60 degree weather with high humidity,you may want to let it sit for an hour or more,or just wipe a small spot with your finger to see if it's dry
