    Smile 3rd Coat of Zaino on the New GTO... Awesome!

    I used Zaino all the time on my 99 SS (sold about 5 years ago, still on Sal's website, by the way). When I bought my 02 Z28, I wasn't as enthused about that car and went to auto parts store stuff, then just the car wash once a month...

    The 06 GTO rocks... nicest car I ever owned. I considered for about 5 seconds using the stuff the dealer put on for $299 (rip off, but no choice)...

    But this car is too nice. I wasn't impressed with their limited product line, information, website, etc. I bought a new kit of Zaino products and I forgot how good this stuff is. It rocks! The car looks freakin' awesome.

    Saturday night, I drove from Orlando to Daytona Beach and back. You could imagine how many bugs I had on the front. I couldn't wash it until this AM. The bugs and bug guts just fell off, like meat off a rack of ribs that's been cooking for 6 hours. And the whole car was extremely clean and still shiney from the 125 mile round trip. Almost no brake dust on the wheels, rocker panels very clean, too.

    I'll take some pictures later this evening and try to get them posted. You can't get good pictures in bright sunlight, shadows and crap.

    I can't imagine anyone not being convinced Sal's products are the best, bar none... at least giving them a try. Looks great, protects the finish and makes washing a snap. The easy washing alone makes the cost worth it.

    Here's my Zaino'd GTO pictures. Rockin' clean and shiney. Easy as pie to apply and wipe off. The bug guts and crap wash off easily, too.

    A little less than $100 will set you up very nicely with about a year's worth of stuff. You may have to buy 1-2 items (like the car wash and detail spray) twice a year if you use it more often.

    Let me know if you have any questions. But, I swear by the stuff. It's really good and worth the cost is tiime and effort (keeping the car clean and looking good) savings alone.

    My wife had a white GMC Jimmy I gave the Zaino treatment. It looked awesome. Definately... white looks great with Zaino.

    Plus, it protects your paint finish, the car stays cleaner and it washes up much easier.

    Be sure you prep the surface first. Wash with Dawn dish soap to get all the crap off, then give it the clay bar treatment.

    Post if you have any questions as you go.

    I found those Jimmy pictures. They are from 1998. These are not the best quality scans, but should give you a little idea of Zaino on a white car / truck.

    Anyone else got a white car with the Z treatment?

    I know what you mean. I've done white cars with zaino (z2) and they turn out so bright they can make you squint to look at it in the sunlight.........

    Zaino, rocks! I used it for the first time on my midnight blue 05 GTO. Five hand rub coats, arm was ready to fall off, but all worth it. 1k miles this summer, never had to wash it. Its now dusty but I am sure it will rinse off> I was so pozest that I went to JC pennies just to buy AMERICAM MADE COTTON BATH TOWELS @$16.00 a peice, got them home and cut them up. My wife think I'm nuts. Yea, don't forget to start off washing it down w/ dawn dish detergent...take all the waxes and other shit off.
