I'm starting all over with Zaino. I've got Destiny all washed really good with Dawn, she's now in the garage drying. My question is, how do I mix the zfx stuff in the little vial? What do I mix it with? Do I still start with the polish loc as the "base"? Then what's after that? I'd look it up on the site, but I'd rather get my answers from those that have used it. The zfx stuff was given to me, but no instruction sheet or anything came with it. I have no clue here. Tried to do a search, but nothing came up. lol

Dar..

I emailed Hubby at work..Here are the instructions he sent back..

******


GET OUT AND CHAMOIS THE CAR TO PREVENT SPOTTING!!!! Go over the whole car
with a claybar for best results. Then "dust" the car with Z6 detailer. a
light mist works best!

THEN Put 2 DROPS of the zfx in one of the 2 oz bottles half full of Z5,
and mix thrououghly. That's enough to do the car at least TWICE!! Only
apply enough to BARELY be able to see it. If you put too much on...you'll
be disappointed with the results, and it will be difficult to remove.

Apply in a circular motion for even coverage...but wipe in lines before
moving to the next section. Wipe the sides of the car vertically (up and
down), and the hood from nose to windshield.

Let it cure for about an hour....then remove with a clean terry towel. Z6 the
car and Reapply the Z5/zfx again. Let it cure for an hour and remove.
Again...Z6 between EVERY coat.

Now fix half a bottle of Z2 with 2 drops of zfx. Mix, apply, cure, remove,
Z6! For best results, you can alternate application of Z2 and Z5. The
more you do...the better it looks. Just let it cure before removal...
and LESS IS BEST!!! ONLY PUT ENOUGH ON TO BARELY BE ABLE TO TELL IT"S
THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great! Please thank him a bunch for me! I guess I'll start in the morning, it's getting too late here now and I understand that once it's mixed, you gotta use it. Wow, alternate between Z2 and Z5...gonna need another little bottle!

Dar...update from Hubby.....

***
after the 1st 2
coats of Z5...to just use the Z2 from then on since she only has 1 bottle.
the bottles need to be cleaned at the end of the day with
isopropanol (rubbing alcohol) so the Zaino don't dry in'm...and don't
forget to clean the little flip up valvue in the top.

Quick question. Why are you starting over? Aren't you supposed to keep adding onto Zaino? Oh wait, you had your car painted recently, didn't you?

Okay, nevermind |thumb|

Back to work
