Thanks for going off topic and answering my question. Your Boss looks fantastic.4dRacer said:Scenery is a nature center her in town that is about 700 acres preserve of man made lakes and lots of grown trees. There is a golf course that's part of it as well but didn't think they would let me "drive" up on the green for some pictures

Total it was about 9-10 hours, I did it in 3 steps over 4 days. Dawn wash, clay bar, z7 wash last Saturday night. Rained like crazy on Sunday so it just set in the garage. Monday night I cleaned it with z6 and then applied z-aio, z6, z5 w/zfx, z6, z5 w/zfx, z6, z2. Tuesday lunch I took off z2 touched up with z6 and then put on z-cs. Let z-cs sit overnight. Wednesday morning before work I applied z8.
On the Boss I used zfx with z5 and not with z2 but only because z2 was applied very late at night so I just let it cure overnight. It took about 15 hours for it to cure, must have been humid. On the GT I used zfx with both z5 and z2, not sure it really makes any difference just depends on time available.
All of this is thanks to Boss2511 and rest of you guys on here for answering my numerous questions. Without his instructions and detailed out steps it probably would not have turned out as well. The Zaino instructions are good but it's nice when somebody has gone through the process and gives you all the details, like letting z-cs sit overnight and applying very very little of it.
if you dont use zfx it just takes a while to fully cure untill you can put on another layer. you still apply it the same as per the bottle's instructions. Apply an even coat wait 15-30mins and remove.4dRacer said:That was my understanding, if you don't use zfx than it takes quite a long time to dry for z2 or z5 or z-aio
Lol I guess I could do a how to Zaino your Boss. Wouldnt be to hard. Won't be for a while as I have to wait till its time to reclay the boss. Or I could do it using someone else's are if they ever bring it over to have done.ace72ace said:After seeing my Merc, I had a few guys offer me $200 to do their cars. But for what the materials cost, and the many hours of labor, it's just not worth it to me. After adding all this up, I can certainly see why professional detailers would find alternatives. But for your average Joe, you could easily split the cost with a relative of neighbor, so in the end you'd have the means to do it at home, on your own schedule, and know that you did it right, and the pride of having done it yourself.
I think Justin should start a new thread, 'The Zaino Experience - How to reach Nirvana by waxing your Boss Mustang" ;D
