Do you realize Zaino would cost less for the whole treatment system, and you would be able to continue to retreat your car several times a year and have some left over.

I'd like to see a photo of this paint, if you don't have orange peel then you'll have one of a very few of any model GM makes and one of the first with the 5th Gen.

Away at work, but will be taking a better look at it for sure, only thing I noticed that the hood latch was yellow and black so it may have overspray on a black latch, and in the door hinge area its a bit light. the peel never noticed,both my trucks are fine ???????

If you look at the picture below, focus on the areas's where you see the white of my shirt in contrast to the paint. The "waviness" is what's referred to as "orange peel".

A lot of the orange peel in 010 Camaro and Stang is the sheet metal not the paint.

It's the robots. I blame them, some of the galvanized body metal can get dimples and the paint shows it.

Always remember when looking at something with paint that your looking at a base material and a paint. Not just a paint. The eye's can lie.

Money= easy come easy go, the time it would take for me to wax, I could have had someone wax it six times think its a good trade off, may have too look for a cheaper detailer though
