Default ? for you Zaino users

i am thinking about getting this stuff to try it out but had a few questions

1. how often do you have to wax your car (doesn't have to be showroom shiny, just nice looking for me)

2. how many coats would you need to get the car to the aforementioned state?

thanks btw your cars all look great

1. Depends on how anal retentive you are. I put a few coats on last fall, it lasted most of the way through winter, then I noticed water wasn't beading much anymore. Time to put more on.

2. Assuming you clay bar your vehicle and start from a nice clean base...even 1 or 2 coats will make it look really sharp. The more the merrier with Zaino...you can apply many super-thin coats and to the eyes of some people, the shine keeps getting deeper and better looking. I currently have 2 coats of Z5 and 3 coats of Z2 on my car.

I spritz after each wash and it's still working great. Did it in Sept. But I'm going to redo soon but with the swirl remover first.

After the claybar, I start with 1 coat of Z1, and 2 - 3 coats of Z2, followed by 1 coat of Z5. The concentrated soap helps keep the shine longer too.

I usually add a coat of Z2 and Z5 once every month or so

Here's a search I did for the word "Zaino" for the last 3 months in the "General" section:


Happy looking, and buy the Zaino. . .that's all there is to it. . .you won't be disapointed. . .

I'll answer both at once.

If you can not drive for like a 3 day weekend... you can get a good 5-10 coats on. Easy. If you do wash with no-scent dawn and claybar before... you should be set for 1/4-1/2 of the year. Just use the spray on shine stuff (forgot the actual name) every day or so for quick detailing.
