    cleaner polish befor Zaino?

    I know that you have to wash your vehicle with dishwashing soap before you apply Zaino to get the paint wax/oil free. I have a new vehicle that is "white" and I have already clayed & applied several coats of Z5. I have driven it in the rain and have washed it with Zaino soap several times. I have noticed some tan/brown stains on the rear wheel lips and behind the rear tires on the bumpers. The clay bar will not take the stains off and was wondering if there is a cleaner(when I say cleaner, not like a spray on cleaner but something you have to apply and buff off) that I can use to take off the stains and I won't have to wash the area with dishwashing soap again. I am looking for something that I can apply Zaino right over. I know I want to stay away from anything that is oily.

    Try Zaino PC, it works great! I've ued it on all 3 of my vehicles. Just keep in mind that it will remove all your zaino from that spot. I the complete vehicles with an orbital polisher. That worked great. I was totally amazed at how much easier Z5 & Z2 went on and came off. Here are a couple pics of our Toyota that I did (3rd car/winter ride).

    Your tire dressing is what is causing the spotting, the spin off.

    Yeah, I changed the tire dressing that I use and the sponge that I put it on with.

    Wow, those are some great results on the Celica.

    I'm not a fan of Zaino, but some of their stuff has been proven.

    Can I apply Meguires #9 and then put on Z5 right after without washing with Dawn soap?
