I thought I would be the first to post about Zaino! The Zaino line of car care products is unbelievable! I was a die-hard Meguires (sp?) user for over 15 years, but very quickly became a Zaino convert!

The price of the Zaino products was a little intimidating at first, but I found that on a per use basis the cost is comparable, plus the awesome results makes it all worth while.

I do not work for Zaino and I am not a distributor, I just think the product is worth promoting to others. Check out their website:

I thought I would be the first to offer an alternative to zaino.

If you want to try something different, then give Forumula 113 a try, you will get an incredible shine with just one use, and unlike z, it will do wonders for oxidized and faded paint.

I'm not here to bash z , I just want to offer another choice to you vette lover's...

P.S there Bead X spray is one of the best around...

I've used both Z and Meguires. Kinda like the Z a bit better. If anyone would like to
try Z. I know of a distributer... Just email me and I'll get you in contact with them...
Look s like I might have to give the Formula 113 a try

We have a Z distrib. in our Club (www.ccdv.com) & the members rave about it. I've also heard that it's a bit pricy & can take several hours to do the job right, but once it's done, it lasts a long time & provides a very professional look.

I purchased a package from Zaino last year, about 100 bucks, still have lots left, will have to replenish afew supplies but I was pretty happy. It is alot of work if you clay bar then do the first few applications, but after that, its all gravy, wash , dry and you can zip a coat of Zaino on in nothing flat, wipes right off, no rubbing rubbing rubbing, then ashot of the boost spray, and that stuff smells infrickingcredible, I love it. I don't believe that anyone I have told about it up here has ever heard about it, but they are impressed with the shine. My .02

Thanks Dave

I swear by Zaino. It even made my cracked hood stripe look a bit better and the cracks not as noticable. A friend just gave me the new stuff that you mix, I'm sorry I don't remember the name, I think it's called ZX. I didn't get a chance to try it before I got hit, but plan on it as soon as Destiny comes home and I do a whole new round of Zaino since she'll be totally stripped. You're supposed to be able to do like 3 coats in 1 day which would be great before a show. Anyone tried it yet? Yep, I dig the spray too! :)

Darla, it is called ZFX. Works real well and you can put about 3-4 coats on in a day depending how warm it out. I love the Zaino for the exterior and even the leather conditioner and cleaner. MAkes the seats look great in the CE

I've heard nothing but good things about Zaino, so I'm going to give it a try this summer.

Dale, I love it and you won't be sorry. You can order directly from Sal Zaino or order from a guy in the Philly area. Here is his website, and his name is Carl. Great guy and very helpful

Thanks. I'll definitely be getting some as soon as I get my money back into the positives!! |biggrin| Took a hit after buying a new Craftsman compressor and air tools.

Do you know what to get? I can direct you if you need it. (I sound like I work for him, which I don't) |laugh|
Aslo, Carl (the web site I gave to you) accepts Paypal, if you are signed up with them.

I'm not sure what to get, so I'd greatly appreciate some advice. I know they have a process that you are supposed to follow for best results, but don't know what it is. There are some small scratches and swirl marks that I'd like to try and get out too.

Dale, you are going to want to get:
Z1 Polish Lock
Z2 Polish
Z5 Scratch/swirl mark Remover
Z6 Glass Enhancer
Z7 Car wash
Applicator pad

If your paint is really rough and bumpy, you might want to consider a clay bar. To see the correct procedure, check out Sal's website for instructions, or I can email them to you. It would be too long for here

Thanks a lot Chris! I've heard about the clay bar before and I'll probably get that as well. I'm interested on doing anything to make it shine a little more.

I heard that once you use zaino you cant go back to ordinary wax because it can't be removed. Is that true? Joe

Sorry Joe. Haven't heard that myself. I heard its hard to go back to other stuff because of the results, but not impossible because Zaino wouldn't come off.

Joe, Zaino CAN be removed. You have to do it with Isopropyl Alcohol, that will remove it if you want to. Trust me, when you get a couple of coats on your car, you will not want to remove it |biggrin|

No one has mentioned what I consider to be one of Zaino's best features: Almost nothing sticks to it! I'm going up the PA Tpke NE Extension Sunday AM and I know that when I get where I'm going, there will be very few bugs. Those few that are there, will come right off with a little gloss enhancer on a rag. I'm into my second year of Zaino and probably have about 8 or 9 coats on the car. I constantly get compliments on the gloss and inquiries as to what I use.
