1. Any Car Cleaner... Z2 Show Car Polish For Clear Coated Finish.
2. Only online as far as I know.

I used only Zaino products on my 2003 Z06 Corvette for the 5 + years I had it. It always looked "stunning" I also reccomend the Z6 Ultra Clean Gloss Enhancer. It prevents static electricity from attracting dust and really makes it shine! I used it right after waxing and it the car was in-between washings and only slightly dusty.
Hope this helps alittle.

Buy it online so that you don't get a bottle on ebay that says Zanio and has some Walmart wax in it. It avoids rip offs.

Get the kit.

We love Zaino, have used it for years. I just gave my Camaro her first treatment. I agree with getting it directly from their website, may seem expensive but a little does go a long way!

I would buy.

1. Clay bar (can use zaino or maguires)
2. Z2
3. ZFX

That's it...that's 'all' you really need.

I just ordered a bunch of stuff to stock up...I ordered a couple of bottles of Z2, one ZFX kit, a bunch of applicators, a bottle of ZPC (for my wifes car..it has some stuff that needs buffing), and some of their towels...which are awesome).

But...for your first order...just get the three items listed...and make sure you like the stuff.

If I bought:

Clay Bar
Z-7
Z-2
Z-FX

Would I be pretty set? I have never waxed a car like this before...but I definitely want to do it when it comes in. From reading on the site and around here, I'm assuming it goes Clay Bar > Z-7 > Z-2/Z-FX ? How many coats of Z-2?

Regarding Z6, for those who know the products:
All you who have cars know that the radio display is a magnet for dust. Would the Z6 product help or is their a different product for the interior that is a better solution?

Zaino is a synthetic polish, not a wax. I use Z-5 and Z-2 mixed. It does hide swirl marks very well on my 2002 Z06.
When I get my SS, I will wash it with Dawn liquid detergent, clay it, then apply Zaino.
Use the Zaino wash, it contains some polish in it.
IMO, an amazing product.

I bought the starter kit for my first time.

LOVE IT. My black cars look like mirrors when done, literally.

I typically do, clay -> 1 coat z5 -> 2 coats z2 with z6 in between. The max number of coats per day, WITH zfx is 3, so that's where I usually stop. I use the wash as well though and every time I was it looks like it was just waxed.

However, I'm not a huge fan of the tire gloss, it's not very glossy, more of a conditioner.
