Keeping her maintained!

Ok, I am pretty much sold on the Zaino system and will be ordering today, but I was wondering a couple of things.

1. what are you using for the inside plastic? I know that Armorall is not cool, but I didnt see anything from Zaino for that...

2. Where are you guys doing the detailing at? It says to do it in a cool dry place. So I assume you dont want to be in direct sun. Are you doing it in your garage?

Thanks for the input!

Someone else can give you an answer for 1. As for 2:

Well, I wash the car outside, out of direct sunlight. If you have some sort of shading, you can park under that and wash it. If not, you can wait until like 6PM when the sun is going down. It should be cool enough to wash and dry without an issue.

I then move the car into my garage to polish and wax. The interesting thing though, is I think the Zaino polishes can be applied in sunlight. When your package arrives in a few days, it comes with 2 pages of instructions that will give you a better answer.

1. Leather in a bottle... just go over it like you would with the armor all... works nice and smells good.

2.I do it under the shade of my tree in my front yard on the grass... It's an arizona ash. And I do it early mornings if I can,.... if not then late afternoon.
