VERY good point!! You can get 90% of that look with the "otc" products at stores, but WITHOUT the durability!! Zaino lasts & lasts!!

To 2010 SS RS: If you need a quick detailer, why not use Zaino's Z-7 it is fantastic.
To Embalmer: The stripes on your car look to be matte black is that correct? Did you Zaino the stripes too?

I agree the stripes do look good. But are those matte black stripes?

You can use Z7 or Z6 for a quick detailing, provided the car is clean.

Yes and Yes.

Z-2 over the stripes. I do not Z-8 or Z-CS them... although some gets on them when I do the hood and trunk lid. Z-8 and Z-CS does not change the appearance of the Z-2 on the stripes.
