Vinyl Stripes

I am getting my bumblebee stripes installed on Monday after very much thought on the whole vinyl versus paint debate. I was wondering if anyone has any tips on keeping them looking good for the year or two that they will be on there, and also if anyone has a tip for waxing around them other than just care?

Some info I got from the owner of "ZAINO" Sal Zaino:

A couple quick questions - Just bought a new car (2010 Camaro), How soon before I can use Zaino on it?


Thank You for your interest in Zaino Bros' Show Car Polish Products.

I am a custom painter by trade for over thirty years.
I am very familar with Dupont and PPG and all other paints.

Todays paint technology uses a chemical reaction caused by a catalyst
to cure the paint. Factory paint is fully cured in 36 to 48 hours.

Zaino contains no Wax, Harmful Silicones or Abrasives.....

The funny thing is that this same dealer who tells you to wait 30 days
before waxing, usually puts a coat of wax on your car when he preps
it. Sounds a little contradicting. Don't you think???

Polish your car as soon as you get it. That factory paint is already
cured and needs protection against airborne contaminants and UV rays.



Its got the factory stripes (satin black vinyl), is it ok to use Zaino on them? FYI - Bought the show car kit. Thanks in advance


You're going love Zaino especially on all those decals. Zaino Show
Car Polish works great on all vinyl decals. It is non-abrasive, leaves
no white residue or wax buildup and actually makes the decals last
longer. It's UV40 protectant will keep the decals from shrinking, fading

and drying out. Plus it will make the decals look like they have a clear

coat over them. Try it on all the decals you'll love it.

NOTE: For Flat Black or Matte Decals.

Try a test spot on the Flat Black decals and see if you like the look.
It will make the decals have a slight gloss to them.. It boils down to a
matter of personal preference.
