    IMO Zaino provides the smoothest finish along with the best reflectivity.

    Zaino is really good quality but its expensive and hard to find. I personally like to do a layer or two of Meguires 26. Its available at most auto stores and is moderately priced and looks nice if you take your time.

    For those of us who aren't lucky enough to have a garage for our Fbodies, what would you recommend? Trying to find some sort of overhang or shady spot to use, or wait till it's cloudy out? Or does it really matter if you apply wax while the sun is out?

    If the paint is fairly cool, you can apply Zaino in the sun.

    best wax

    LIQUID GLASS!!!! thats the best, they tell you to let it (bake in) the sun after you 1 pre-clean 2 polish it. it's not a wax but has the properties of a wax an you can apply polish many time for you never get any (wax build up ) try it you'll love it.

    I used to apply zaino all the time in the California sun--no problem at all. It was white though.

    Best wax is at best subjective. I only use carnauba wax, and only Zymol for car #1.
