What I love about using zaino is the shine lasts so long.

exactly. pain to go thru the steps but the accelerator really helps and only have to wait 20-30 minutes between coats. i think i may use NXT on the ranger. i used Zaino for my last 2 cars, but both had candy/chameleon paint jobs so the high gloss and long time between reapplication were very much worth the price.

I have found nxt doesnt hold up over time very well... looks great at first, but after a month or two, dulls a bit

Don't wash you vehicle with Dawn..Removes things out of your paint that is bad for it..There is absolutely no reason to wash the vehicle after clay baring as well..
Zaino is o.k. to each his own..Kind of a scam to me ...I have WAAAYYYY more options with Megs products..NXT is not the top of the line for Megs either..Anyone tried #21 yet? It will convince alot of Zaino boys of the power of Meg's...

All this talk with NXT and Zaino. Its all in preference. Zaino being hard to do?!? I dont know what you guys do to Zaino but I'm done with any of my trucks in less than 5 hours. I live in FL which makes it a lot easier. I have never seen White have a reflection but sure as **** Zaino did it. I made sworn NXT users switch to Zaino and have never gone back. Once you learn what in Zaino's process is neccessary and what is not you'll be done in no time... But either way, I have not found any trucks to shine like mine and have had many people pay top dollar for me to use Zaino on their vehicles... Meguiars is the wax they wish they could charge Zaino prices for.... There's a reason people who use Zaino are willing to pay so much for it.

5 HOURS?!?! Right there is my reason..Trust me I used to be a Zaino freak for ONE season ..That was it.."It's better because it costs more"..Great reasoning dude...I can 3 step polish/wax 3 vehicles in 5 hours jeeeeeees...You can't use a polisher with Z either...There is no way to get deeper scratches out by hand..

You can say what you want about Zaino, but the proof is here. All of these are pics of cars/trucks I have owned or own currently or have detailed myself.





Any polish can reflect things close.. but Zaino can do the Sky, the house next door, or the walls across the street 100 feet away.

You can get great results from either of the products. I use meguiars just because of how easy it is to obtain and price and the results I've gotten are great.
Heres a picture of my car taken by the previous owner after going over it with poorboys products.

Heres one I snapped the other day after just going over the car really quickly with Eagle One wax as you dry.


Pic of my old car with NXT. My camera suckeddd so it didnt capture the shine at all but that car had a great reflection.


Its all preference. They all work great.
