    I think you'll find the OTC wax's are good but the higher end stuff puts you over the top..........You won't be disappointed

    Z 12 is OFF THE HOOK for cleaning glass!!! WOW

    I had my baby parked outside my friends apartment complex. Well the dumbass grounds people had the water sprinklers aimed to where they soaked the cars in the parking lot...

    First Problem - the water they use is from well water VERY HARD

    Second Problem - Hot day and got baked in until that night when I noticed to drive home and was blinded by the wreck that used to be my glass.


    I tried every kind of glass cleaner..windex.. even KABOOM which is supposedly specifically for hard water (BULLSHIT) haha didn't phase this..

    I didn't even know they were a sponsor of this site until I came on today so I figured I would represent for them and give them much props!!

    We took clean towel and a bottle of their Zaino Z12 and with a little elbow grease and about 45 minutes.. (we couldn't find the buffer) haha

    Oh yea looking through what looked like brand new glass again!!

    Definitely worth the $12 dollars .. the only thing that does suck is the shipping is $8.95 for a small 8.oz bottle and they only give one shipping option

    Thanks a bunch and hope this saves someone else time to figure out what works o hard water spots ZAINO Z12!!!!!!!!!!

    Vinegar can do the same thing...

    I see all these polishes, but what about waxes...i see none listed on the product list.

    Zaino doesn't have any waxes, only polishes and sealants.

    Mirror glaze > * when it comes to polishes and waxes.

    #7 showcar glaze to seal/protect, and cover with new #26 yellow wax...IMO nothing better, but some people swear by Zaino. I'm sure their products are fine.

    That doesn't look like a micro fiber towel. It looks more like the DF Towels I use.

    Either, you will get better results from a buffer, but will get very good results from hand as well.

    I apply the Zaino polish by hand. The only thing I use my buffer with, is the 3M fine cut rubbing compound or swirl mark remover.

    I also noticed that the Zkit-1 does not contain the Z-AIO... is that really necessary before applying z-2 and z-5? I'm thinking i should add to my order...

    lf i understand correctly if using the ZFX i do not need to use the Z-AIO before applying?
    Im a bit confused, someone help me out lol

    You don't need ZFX anymore with the Z2 Pro and Z5 Pro. They can both be applied to a clean surface and will bond and cure just fine by themselves.

    So even though the kit comes with the ZFX you don't recommend using it? Also do you guys use the Z-SC sealant or should i just use the Z-6 after applying Z-2 and Z-5?

    Sorry for all the questions, i just want to make sure i have the steps down for optimal results.

    Thanks for the responses guys

    You can use it if you want. It won't hurt, but it's not really necessary since Zaino came out with Z2 Pro and Z5 Pro. They added better curing agents to the polishes. I use Zaino CS and I like it. It's more like a spray on, wipe off polish for in-between polishes and helps aid in durability. Zaino's products work well together. You can use as much Z6 or Z8 as you want. I've got more Zaino slapped on the finish of my car than I can possibly count.
