Great Tip about the Z6. Always thought that it should be wetted with something and knew that water wasn't it. (Saw what sweat drops did when mixed with Z )

I recently clayed my car a few weeks ago and it wasn't as big a pain in the butt as I thought it would be...only a 3 beer project.

As for the Zaino...I had the vert in full sun today to inspect the finish. After Z7 (last night) and Z6 with a microfiber buff, there was a slight haze that is noticable on BLACK that might not be seen on other finishes Z2/ZFXed it tonight, so as to be out of the sun, and I'll finish buffing it out before the show. You can see what I mean. I've been driving Black vehicles now for 20 years and do know that they are "challanging" to say the least. This haze is driving me nuts. See you all at the show!

Dan, it sounds like you're using too much Z-6 if you're getting a haze, also you may try switching to a cotton towel and see if that makes a difference.

I've got both the Z2 & Z5 with several layers and it seems that they don't stick anymore even after the Z7 (or maybe applied too much, two towels to take it completely off) Swirls seem to be gone. Is the new Z's that much better, and which one is better on the black...I bought the Pinnacle but don't have the b@!!s to use it yet just in case I want to go back to the Z.

Dan

I am confused about the "not sticking anymore" thing, I have some customers with hundreds, yes hundreds of coats, as long as you use ZFX and apply no more than 3 coats a day your Zaino should stick to everything it touches.

Zaino testimonial

Spent a few nights last week detailing for a parade yesterday.
2 coats of Z2/ZFX and Z6 before and after.
On the way home after the event I decided to stop for fuel. I'm always careful to position the nozzle so I don't get any splash from leftovers, but someone must have left the hose tip-top full and I splashed 93 over my back deck.
Got home dabbed off the residue and hit it with z6. Not a trace of fuel or smear left!

Pete

Gas will not remove Zaino (unless you let it sit on the paint for a while)
