I have never used Zaino and was wondering for a first timer what should I use. From what I hear there is a 3 step process. Correct?

And for the most extreme enthusiast...
While not required, for the ULTIMATE in paint protection and an INCREDIBLE show car finish, use Z-AIO, followed by 2 coats of ZFX enabled Z-5 PRO, then 1 coat of Z-2 PRO (including a Z-6 wipe down between coats) and finish off with an application of Z-CS. Wait 12 hours, then wipe down the vehicle with Z-8. Get your sunglasses out, the gloss may be blinding.

Justin, this might be a dumb question, but; How about on the White car? Long process or the min would be good enough?

Thanks

its worth the extra process on white. you can always stop at the first layer if you are pleased with that :)

I used an abbreviated version of the process and it's pretty remarkably shiny. It's noticeably more shiny that stock. Water beads like it's nobody business.

I just used a combo of the Z-6 spray (before Z-2), then Z-2 (2 coats), then Z-6 spray for final touch.

I also make a point to do the wheels since they are painted and it's a lot easier to get the brake dust off.

Also, I do use the products on the decals, and I found it's a little harder to wipe it off the decals, but does come off and looks great.

The tough part is that on white, it's near impossible to see the "haze", so it's a little harder to know when it's dry and when you buff it off, that's it's off.

What is aio? Does the products take care of swirls as well? I noticed they sell a kit. Maybe this would be they way to go?
