    One of the reasons I use Zaino is because of the ease of application and removal.

    If you are starting with a pretty clean vehicle, Zaino is as easy as it gets.

    You may want to strip all the wax the first time (just use Dawn Dish Washing Detergent) it will take all wax off. Then if you are compulsive and obsessive like most of us, you can clay bar the surface. The wipe on mixed Zaino, let dry to a haze and take off with a big cotton towel...no dust to worry about...works great. From then on just wash with a vehicle wash product and apply Zaino, let it dry and you are done...Zaino can go on in the sun too. That is one of the reasons I changed from Griot's wax...it was super, but too much dust in buffing and no direct sun application.

    I used to own two black hobby vehicles...I know easy from hard when it comes to polishing and waxing.

    The side motors are higher because the outer part of the hull is higher then the center of the hull
