I have used Zaino for a few years with steller results. I have read about using a clay bar but have not used before. I picked a perfect day to try, 92degrees in the shade....what was I thinking??? garage 100+.
My paint is 7+years old and has never been smooth. The clay bar was easy to use and worked excellent! My paint is finallly smooth, like a new car! I'm impressed. |thumb| |bouncy| |bouncy| |thumb|

I purchased the Zkit-1 a couple of weeks ago. it included the claybar also. I am very impressed with the finish,Very Smooth with a Great shine. It took about 8 hours to do the whole process, including washing first with Dawn dish washing liquid then the clay bar then washing again with Z7 show car wash then applied Z2 show car polish, then applied Z6 Gloss Enhanser, then Z5 Car Polish, Sounds like a lot of work and it IS! |frown| I also got the Z12 Glass polish. It works real nice too. Made my 30 year old glass look almost new again. The thing I also liked was there was NO wax dust ON the garage floor when I was done. It is MUCH Nicer to work with than wax. I dont know how well it holds up compared to wax, because its the first time I've used it,They claim it will oulast wax |smile| Anyway thats my 2 cents worth Thanks! |cheers|

I also just used the clay for the first time and it make the paint feel like glass!! I like it so much I tried it on my truck with the same results. I used a less expensive bar but I still like the results i got. Are all Clay bars the same?

Yes they are but it is the finishing product which shows out the final difference. That's why I love Zaino |biggrin|
