    need help with the zaino

    To start, i'm pretty sure i followed all the directions. I washed my car with dawn to remove all the old wax. Next i used a claybar on the entire car. I applied the z-pc fusion to remove some spider webbing and small scratches. It went on ok, but when I buffed it off it left milky "ghost" marks in the paint. These came out with a damp cloth. The car was in my garage, the temp. outside was 70 degrees and I let it dry for six hours. The next day I went ahead and applied the z-2 with the flash cure accel., let it dry for about six hours, and had the same problems and once again had to use a damp cloth to remove the milky "ghost" marks. Anybody know what causes this? What did i do wrong? Would appreciate any help.

    I've never used the stuff, but I'm guessing you applied it too heavily. The same thing will happen with other products I've used. If you apply too much of it then it leaves a residue behind that needs to be taken off with another clean cloth towel.

    Try not using so much or spreading it around more before you go back to get more for your applicator.

    Most people use way too much. You should only need to spread a very light coat.

    I didn't even know Zaino was still around. I used it a while back and it was awesome. Don't know if it is easier to use now adays though.

    ok guys, thanks for the help. I'm gonna try it again, but with thinner coats. The stuff is kinda hard to see as your applying it, must have put it on too thick.

    THATS EXACLY WHAT HAPPENED......TOO THICK, 2oz will do your whole car. less IS more.......very light layers. use z5 before z2 to help w/ swirls and scratches.

    i seen the same problem on zaino's site and i think it was in the frequently asked quesitons arear, anyways if i recall right they said the milky gloss with go away after you put on the z-2 or z-5, but maybe you did put too much on.
