PHOTOS! Just Finished - Zaino'd Camaro

Wash sequence

1. Washed car with Zaino Z7
2. Clayed with Z-18
3. Wipe down with Z6 Gloss enhancer
4. Polished with Z5
5. Wiped down with Z6 Gloss enhancer
6. Polished 2nd coat with Z2 (much easier to apply)
7. Wiped down with Z6 Gloss enhancer

Total hours about 6.5

I’m not a pro by no means, I think this came out pretty good. What you guys think?

Lookin' good! I'm surprised you wiped the clay residue off with the Z6. Faster than washing and drying I suppose but more expensive. I also wonder which gets the car cleaner (i.e. which removes the most residue). Anyway the proof is in the pictures!

I have been using Zaino for about 4 years now and have found you dont have to wait every 6 months. It actually gets better the more coats you add.... so a coat here and one there will actually make the car look really good. I usually apply a quick coat every months or so... so there is never any 6 month wait for a big Zaino day.

Looks great by the way. Your more than welcome to come spend the day on mine any time you want...
