Zainos and how to apply...
Ok, I have not washed/waxed my car yet (just got it).
I'm pretty sure it has not been waxed by the dealer since it took a bit of effort to get some tree sap off the car.
Many people have had great results with Zainos, and I like the fact that they have a lot of tips and howto stuff on their website.
Couple of questions:
1. Do WRX's come clearcoated from the factory?
2. What is the correct hand motion to use when applying a wax?
3. What is the correct type of applicator for applying products to outside rubber trim (to keep it from drying out)?
4. What is the correct type of applicatator to apply tire dressing with? I don't like spraying it on and then wiping, it doesn't go on evenly and overspray gets everywhere. Is there some kind of special sponge?
I see many (and wax vendors) saying to use a CIRCULAR motion. I've seen i-club members swear on their mother's grave to use STRAIGHT (front to back) motion.

I have a 2002 WRX in rally blue and I use Zaino products weekly on it.
I highly recommend all of their products!!!!
Yes our car comes with a clear coat. Different types of waxes etc..require different types of applications. Usually you will find instructions on the container.
Zaino will give you free applicators depending on how much you spend on their site.
Just so you know, I ordered from them and it took under a week to receive product.

remember to use very little with zaino it goes a long way. Use tire swipes to put on tire dressing. I use foam brushes sold at paint stores to put the vinyl dressing on the rocker panels, Spray on to the brush and then wipe easy no overspray. I would recommend vinylex or aerospace 303 for vinyl.

Zaino recommends that you use a straight motion when applying their polish. You go from bumper to windshield(front to back, back to front) when applying to a horizontal surface such as a hood, trunk, or roof. They recommend you use a straight up and down motion when applying to vertical surfaces such as the sides, bumpers, doors, etc... of the car. They say it really makes a difference.
I use the #2, and the #5 polish on almost everything on the car, including the side skirts, rubber window trim, and the rims. Their product leaves no residue on the textured skirts . For the tires I use their #16 tire gloss, which I apply with a foam aplicator. I find that using cloth covered applicators, or rags just wastes product.
