Zaino Brothers Wax!

Some may remember back in June I posted asking which wax you use. I WAS a big Zymol fan......

After talking to a bunch of friends that have show quality Hot Rods and Muscle Cars I went with Zaino. This has got to be the best wax I have ever used. I ordered it for my girlfriend since she was getting her new Scion in black. Since we live in AZ I knew the car was going to subjected to all kinds of sun. I wanted a good wax that would hold up to the torture the summer heat would bring. Shortly after she recieved her car the package arrived. I bought the Total Protection Show Car Kit for $85. http://www.zainostore.com/Merchant2/...ory_Code=Zaino

It's a total car care system that work fanfukentastic. From the car wash concentrate to the gloss enhancer. After washing the car with the provided soap twice, to remove any other cleaners or residue, it was time to try the wax. They recommend three coats for first time use. They have this nifty Flash Cure Accelerator which makes cure time very short. It was easy on, easy off. What a pain free way to wax. The result was amazing. Rags slid right off the car. To the touch the finish is glass smooth and the shine was unreal. That was before we used the Gloss Enhancer Spray. It made the car look wet. That was about 2 months ago.

The SO washes her car at least once a week since we are in Monsoon Season. She hates when it gets dirty and rushes out at the first site of clear skies to clean her baby. The wax is holding up extremely well. Rags slide of a little slower now, but the water sheets off the car. While not as smooth to the touch as initial application it is still pretty damn good. After every wash she applies a light coat of the Gloss Enhancer and it's good as new. This stuff is the greatest ever. Did I metion all their products smell awesome as well. SO anyone looking to try a new wax that works, Zaino is the stuff you need to try. I for one will use it on every vehicle I ever own. I HIGHLY recommend the product.

Re: Zaino Brothers Wax!

It works SO well at taking off "things" that have been stuck like glue on your paint. It makes your paint feel SUPER SOFT SMOOTH to the touch...you use it with water BTW. Also you do not need to push...just a simple wiping action.

Team Honda - well sorta...

Re: Zaino Brothers Wax!

SMTBs is absolutely correct. The clay bar, in my opinion is a MUST. I claybar my toys once each year. You'd be surprised how much crap it cleans off your car or bike's finish. I add a half ounce of Zaino wash to 16oz. of water into a big spray bottle for the lubricant. Spritz on a 2 X 2 foot area and scim the clay bar over the area. You'll literally feel it pick up the imbedded crap in the paint (which you cannot see). The sensation is much like this...it feels like starting to sweep your fingers across 60 grit sandpaper and then feeling it change to the sensation of sweeping your fingers across fine satin or silk. When the claybar glides that smoothly, you know it has done its job well. Heavy pressure is to be avoided, so this is not a lot of work!

For those not experienced with claybar prepwork. When you get a claybar, pull off a manageable portion, say about half a golf ball size. Knead it with your fingers to make it pliable. Sorta like playing with Silly Putty or Plasticene. Form into a flat disc that your fingers can rub gently (heavy pressure is not required) over the wet (lubricated) area of paint. You'll know when it has picked up the imbedded paint debris as it will glide effortlessly over the paint surface. (Think like what resistance an air-hockey puck has on the table)

If you drop the claybar on the ground, throw it away and get a new piece with which to work! Also related to that thought...fold the piece over and rework it to get a new surface frequently (only if not dropped). Same as turning your polishing towel when buffing out a dried wax application. Claybar is cheap.

Yup, I'm a Zaino fanatic too!

Re: Zaino Brothers Wax!

I've never tried a clay bar, but now I have an idea how to use it should it become needed. Thanks maxib .
