Finally my turn..

Hi all,


I Finally got to pick up my IOM 2SS/RS on friday.I asked them not to do any dealer prep to the car at all.When i got there,the plastic was still on it.My salesman took me to the back to check her out for the first time.




It got to the railyard in Arlignton Texas on Wednesday.Both Wednesday and Thursday it stormed pretty bad in that area.I get home and situated to start washing and Clay-baring the car around 5 P.M. .I get the dawn wash clay bar and second Zaino wash RIGHT before a nasty storm comes rolling in,so i pull it into the garage before it gets an O-nat-u-ral wash .It's supposed to rain the rest of the weekend,and that means the polish is going to take forever to dry,so i apply the first coat and go inside for the night.The next day it's raining on and off all day so the process was very slow.I removed the first coat,apply Z6,second coat,more Z6,third coat,and finish it off with Z8.

Today i get up,check the weather,and to my delight it's gonna be a beautiful day.So now i'll just get to the pictures now and stop wasting everyone's time.


These were taken near lake ray Hubbard near I-30 and Dalrock road.Sorry for the redish look on the car,i forgot to set my white balance

I found LOTS of stuff in the clay on the hood and the hips.There were some blemishes on the hood that i couldn't get out,but im not worried about it.When the stripes are painted on they are going to sand it anyway ,so it's all good.

Did u use z2 or z5(or both)? I'm going to try Zaino for first time when I get my Black Camy. Their website says to use Z5 for darker cars. Do you see a difference between Z2 and Z5?

Starter kit doesn't come with Z8. Does the Z8 work better than the Z6? Might have to get some of the Z8 also.

Looking good. After you do your stripes try working the Z-CS in with your Zaino routine. Works great on everything, paint, plastic, wheels and glass.
