assistance needed:

my sis took the car to the car wash!! the paint is FULL of swirl marks, there are scratches down to the paint and metal also! i know that the zaino stuff wont get rid of those deep scratches, but i want to give the car a good wax and polishing to get rid of as many swirl marks as possible. on the zaino bros website, there are tons of products.
my question is, which ones do i need for the waxing, keep in mind that this isnt for show or it doesnt have to be extra shiny, just as good as it looked out of the factory. also, how long does one of those bottles last?

Waxing might take care of some of it... but if you have a few hundred bux you can spare take your car here: http://www.diabloautomotive.com

I took my car there last weekend they got out 3 scratches 1 was by the window and only a surface scratch, the other was about 2 feet long down the rear driver side door and onto the bumper and was pretty deep and the 3rd I forgot to point out and was by the gas tank and its gone too! Not to mention the car got a full detail every spec of dirt was gone all my trim was cleaned the inner wheel liner and the inside of the rims where all the break dust collects.

Good luck!

I don't really know what you need to get the swirl marks out, I always just use Z-1 polish lok and Z-2 polish for clearcoat.

The product list has a 'Zaino Bros Z-5 Polish for swirl marks and fine scratches'.

So I would probably get Z-1, Z-2, and Z-5.

Hope this helps. BTW I love Zaino Bros. Not only is the customer service excellent (I mailed them the check like last thursday from Florida, and I got my box of zaino stuff yesterday), but the polish just plain works. I use it on my motorcycle as well, and if I put it on the tank where I grip with my knees, they slide right off. It's pretty funny.

In addition to what geremy mentioned (Z-1, Z-2, Z-5) you'll also want to order Z-6 (gloss enhancer).

I did the Zaino on my car this week and the result is excellent.
My Order arrived the day after i placed my order, which was great.
I did the clay bar, then Z1, 3 coats of Z2 and Z6.
I friend of mine had ordered the Z5 swirl remover, and it got rid of almost all the fine scratches on his 99RS. It think you should give it a try, im sure You'll be happy with the results
