    Thanx, but I don't understand what it does. It says use in place as a top coat? Clear coat sealer, I don't get it? PLEASE explain.

    No, it doesn't help more. You apply it over wax? The bottle is way to small to do a whole car? Can someone explain it better than Mr. Zaino?

    I have not used it yet but based on what I read, it looks to me like it is mean't to go over the polish to help protect it and also provide a nice shine to the finish. The purpose of CS is to improve the longevity and durability of an already pretty durable car polish.

    How much is supposed to be applied to an entire car? The same can be said about Z-2, Z-3 and Z-5 if you apply is like you would a wax.

    There's nothing wrong with asking. That's how you learn.

    A true sealer should be used after a glaze, but before a wax, a handful of people don't bother with wax, they just use a boutique glaze and a boutique sealer and that's it. 24 hrs should be allowed between all three for true curing, though some sealers will say 12 hours, I like to make sure and go 24.

    I use Klasse glaze, Wolfgang sealer and Pinnacle Soveran wax

    That's a great combo. How do you like the Klasse Glaze?
    I have JW Prime, and the AJT

    Let's put it this way, I have done this combo to a black 94 Formula, that I owned, and my next door neighbors black vette and to date have only seen 2 cars that had as good a wetness and shine, and that was on the internet. I have never seen in person a car with the wetness, depth and shine that our cars had after doing it.

    Please keep in mind, both cars were prepped extremely well, each car took several weeks to prepare before any glaze, sealant or wax was used, washed several times, then clayed, then polished with a random orbital buffer, removing all the swirls, using Menzerna intensive polish and their finishing polish first. THEN these were applied and each coat allowed to dry a full 24hrs, before the next. Results? Jaw dropping.

    Wish I had taken pics, but when it came time to sell her, it didn't take long...lol

    One could probably only get better results using a high speed rotary buffer first, to actually remove all defects, but you better know how to use one before attempting it, a random orbital doesn't actually remove clearcoat, it polishes the edges of swirl marks and surface scratches so that they can no longer be seen by the naked eye. Neither will remove orange peel, that takes wet sanding.

    As far as Klasse glaze, it's a glaze, not a sealer and yet, I was actually crazy enough to put this on my gym's metal weight plates to see if it could help in slowing rust development, lo and behold, I have a Universal Centurion, which has five weight stacks, of the five I used it on two, these are the only two which do not have rust on them to this day, that was applied well over a year ago.

    If it will do that for metal, imagine how much your protecting your car from oxidation using the glaze, a sealer and wax!!!

    Yeah, that's some good stuff. I too have a PC, and I should be getting my menzerna next week from Ireland. I ordered PO85RD, PO85RD3.00 PO85RD3.02 and some POFF I can't wait to try it

    Great!!! If you've never used it before, your gonna be real happy.
    Who's pads ya usin and who's wax ya goin wit'?

    Dude...with your torch red Z06, you gotta try Pinnacle's Souveran paste wax, it's expensive (90 bucks for a tub) but everyone...I mean EVERYONE that sees your car thereafter will be like "WOW"!!!

    Pinnacle's Souveran is unmatched on black, red and dark blue.

    I have used a lot of different manufacturers pads, if ya not sure on which pads to get, lemme know, maybe I can steer ya in the right direction.

    When you start actually doing your car, keep it in your head, there is nothing too extreme in preparing the paint. Wash it, wash it again...think it's clean? Wash it again. Then clay it, before you clay it, make sure it wasn't sitting out overnight gathering airborne dust either...go over every...every inch of your beloved car.

    Then and only then, is it ready for polishing.

    Think of it like this, before you paint metal, the metal must be smooth and 100% free of dirt/dust grease of any kind, before you chrome metal the same. Before you glaze, seal and wax, you must get the paint as free of defects as possible and the clearcoat as glossy as possible. When your done, the car will simply look like it's slick and wet all the time, reflections for miles and will literally look like you can step right into it.

    It will be "jeweled" just like a diamond, reflecting light in all directions, yet looking like it's wet, yet giving off mirror reflections...detailers Nirvana.

    Right now, I have just completed stage II of Pinnacle's 3 step polishing system (trying Pinnacle's XMT polishing system on this car) and there hasn't been a person yet, who when I tell it has no wax on it, that doesn't say, "Yea, right"
    They don't believe it now? They ain't seen nuthin yet.

    {FzS}BlacKMagicK; I've got some Sonus green, and blue pads to work my menzerna with. I'd love to get some PS Wax, but I've spent too much money in products lately. I'm looking at some Natty's, or CG50-50 for waxes as well. I also have some meguiars 26 wax. But my favorite sealant is RejeX, and I also have AJT Sealant to try
    I have my Clay Magic ready to go. I just need some 60 degree weather to get going
