Thought I'd share my Zaino experience with you.

Washed her down with Z-7 Shampoo, & then wiped the car down with Menzerna Top Inspection .

First up was Z-5 "PRO Show Car Polish", followed by a wipe over with Z-6"Ultra Clean Gloss Enhancer Spray" to remove any residue, then I applied Z-2"Pro Show Car Sealant" & left for an hour whilst I did the wheels & tyres.

I buffed off the Z-2 & applied a 2nd coat, & left it on for the afternoon.

6hrs later, I buffed it off using Z-8 "Grand Finale Spray Seal" to aid me, I then gave it a final wipe down with Z-8.

Done..... (maybe I should have done the arches too:o )




I feel it leaves a sharper shine than a carnuaba, which it should do anyway, but what I love over the carnuba is it allows the true colour of the paint to come through more, lots of flake ....

I've taken the pic as best to show it off, in the sun where allowing, no indoor bonnet shots for above or similar ;) but there are so many curves on this car its hard to capture it on camera :(

That looks great, Jace ... I've seen your evaluations of Pinnacle Souveran and Dodo Supernatural over on DW, too.

Here's a rather direct question - have you used Meguiars Professional products much? Over on the Meguiars forum, there has been a few thread recently about why people moved from Zaino to Meg's or how is Meg's better than Zaino kind on threads.

I have a growing repertoire of Meg's Mirror Glaze products for our black car which I really like and I'm very keen on dipping my toe into Zaino with the Z8 product. Have you (or other readers) tried both? What is YOUR comparison? I think we'd get a less biased opinion here TBH.

It annoys me too when people lock on to a particular product and rubbish others - even those they have used before :evil: The truth is, some people will not like Zaino for one reason or another - maybe it will come down to the mixing of ZFX with the polish. Some people may just prefer quick use products like NXT wax.

I would recommend Carlack NSC and LLS to anyone, as I would most of the waxes I have tried. Zaino has stunned me so it is now my product of choice by a mile - I don't suddenly hate Megs or BoS because of it though :)

That looks really impressive. Have to say I don't know much about the Zaino system. Is it any good on solids?
