    This car doesn't look magnificent by any means(it has 165k miles and 12 years old), but I was fairly impressed with the results today. All this was done by hand, I don't have a buffer.
    Is this the same system you use on the SS? If not, what is?

    Ha Ha this is why I could not have multiple cars cause I would spend to much damn time cleaning them even if one was a pos dd I would still have to keep it looking sharp. I just can't drive a dirty car.

    The Camaro would be a similar process but different in ways. I haven't washed the Camaro in 3 years, just no need too honestly. I also don't want the wheels to ever see water.

    If I was going to do a full detail on someones car, it would be:

    1. Wash with 2 buckets and Z7
    2. Dried and claybar
    3. ZPC with the pad I linked
    4. Z5, multiple coats here(not doing multi coats on the Ford)
    5. Z6 after each coat of Z5
    6. Z2 after I was satisfied with the Z5 work
    7. Z8 to finish off with

    Windows and tires also done using Z12 and Z16. I wouldn't use that much Zaino on the Ford, its just not worth it. This process I outlined would be how I would initially start a vehicle with Zaino when I detail them. Zaino is only labor intensive the FIRST time you use it. After that, its a very simple and labor friendly process. If your vehicle gets a lot of mileage a year, you probably want to claybar it every 6 months. If it doesn't get much mileage/useage, you can just maintain it with Z5/Z2/Z6 for the most part.

    No store carries Zaino. You either need to find a local distributor or order it directly from Zaino at www.zainostore.com.

    I've used some great stuff. But Zaino is by far the most fantastic ever.
    Thin, thin, thin is the key. If you put it on and you can clearly see the polish
    when it hazes, you put on too much.

    Exactly, thin coats is key. It's not a wax.
