Anybody waxing soon in DFW I need lessons

I have never waxed a car and don't want to pay someone to do it.

I'd like to see someone who uses the Zaino products so I can get some help in deciphering the secret language of Zaino.

Either way if you're waxing in DFW and don't mind me watching and asking a few questions I'd love to stop by.

I have talked to a guy that used 1 coat of Zaino Wax on his 2010 Camaro. He told me it took hours (5) and that was the first of 3 coats recommended!

I have seen cars that Zaino was used on. They look excellent. Is Zaino harder to buff in than most waxes?

It takes me about 15 minutes to put the Zaino on my Corvette and about 15-20 minutes to wipe it off. It goes on easy and comes off even easier, great product.

He may have been talking about the whole process of washing with dawn,claybar,re-washing with Z-7,and then putting the 3 coats of polish on,as well the Z-6 between each coat.I live in mesquite so im pretty far from you.

My buddy Cody is a professional detailer and he lives in Saginaw. He could detail your car at your house while you watch. I had him put on a base coat the first week I got my car.

Yeah used to be, years ago. When I got the 4th gens I was completely focused on those, and I sold them to get married, so the '91 has just been a reliable daily driver. Once the paint got past a certain point I hated to bring it around really clean 3rd-gens :( But that's how I met Cody, in 1999 at the thirdgen.org national gathering.
