    Default 2 day process

    Over the past couple of years I'd constantly heard of products made by Zaino brothers to detail your car & recently I purchase a few. I have black F250 & the thing is hard to get clean. I heard they're one of the best products to use on a black vehicle. A few weeks ago I washed my truck, dried it, & laid down the 3 stages that they recommended. I was a bit disappointed. The wax was harder to take off than I thought it would be. So after a few days I went to YouTube to view the process by Zaino brothers themselves. Come to find out I screwed up the process. I used too much & I didn't let the wax dry long enough.
    This weekend I decided to give it another shot. I laid down the 1st coat (Zaino All-in-One), let it dry, then wiped it off, laid the 2nd coat (Zaino polish for clear-coat), let it dry, then wiped it off, & finally I came behind it with the detail spray. After I laid the 1st coat I could already see the difference. My paint felt like glass. I used a lot of tips from a guy on YouTube called the Junkman2000. Check him out. I used his 2 bucket wash, water dry, & used a leaf blower to dry my truck. Here are the pics.

    I don't work for Zaino or am I a detailer. I'm just an everyday consumer that appreciates an excellent product. Especially one that helps you accomplish your goal yourself.

    Junkman knows his stuff. Truck looks great. This happens all the time in detailing, don't rush into it. Read the instructions and use the products as they were meant to be used. As always with detailing products, less is more and black is one of the easiest colours to get products wrong on. Zaino is one of the better products on the market today.

    I never regret buying this truck, but damn this bitch is big. Lol. It takes me in upwards of 2-3 hours just to give it a good wash. What we do for our rides.

    For specific reference, Z-AIO All-in-one, Z-5 Pro Show Polish, Z-6 Ultra Gloss Spray, & Z-7 car wash. Be sure to try & get the borderless towels. They are the only ones that have 100% cotton borderless towels & they're always sold out.

    I am thinking of trying Zaino, but I don't see any wax on their website, only polish. Shouldn't the proper car care process be that car polish is used first to take out minor imperfections and level the surface, and then a good wax applied onto the polished surface for protectant?
