    Zaino...its name is the worst. Might as well call it Draino. Or Zoomers. And their product naming system? Ridiculously asinine.

    I don't doubt the quality of the stuff and never the results. But I've used Griots for years and am always very happy with the results. Many here saw my '04, which was tracked AND kept immaculate...

    WOW. Ambitious!

    I think I used Z1, followed by Z5, Z2, Z5, Z2, wetting the pad with Z6 through the process. I forgot that my wife bought me the Z8 finale spray, so that will have to go on with the next coat. It is a POLISH and not a wax, so I don't use it on my DD's, but is all I use on the big boy toys. I've used Zaino for over 12 years and was always impressed with the results on my Silver Trans Am and brother's Quasar Blue Z28, but it sure does a great job of hiding minor surface imperfections and making black really POP too.

    (Since these pics were taken I did take the front plate bracket off and installed a 3M Clearbra on the hood, bumper and headlights. It was a pain in the @$$, turned out OK, but black is VERY tough and shows every imperfection. I'm willing to live with it for a while before I attempt a redo)

    Re: Zaino.......it's the best.

    I purchased the Maguiars kit with DA Porter Cable polisher. I couldn't be happier! I have used the system for years and have been pleased. Once you get used to the DA it is impossible to go back to a hand polish.

    With anything, by the time you go through the car you have 4-5 passes. It is a time killer.

    The site I purchased from used to be www.properautocare.com, but they must have been bought out and you get redirected to www.autopia-carcare.com (same products, diff site) Check them out, I have been happy with the how-to videos and products.

    Great photos!!! Thanks for sharing.

    ... As for the wife, she is used to me working or talking about cars incessantly. In fact, I'm wasting time talking to you all right now! Back to the garage for me.

    They recommend not putting Z5 over Z2.
