Zaino!!!! as soon as you guys try that one you will be hooked!! I promise!

Best wax ever... Used it on my T/A ('86) and it revitalized my paint and made it look better than a factory paint job from '04... I would use it on the truck but I ran out and its expensive....

Billy, my truck hasn't been Zaino'ed since either right before or right after the fall Centralia meet.. so thats about 6 months! In the next few weeks I'm gonna have a Zaino-day with Q and my roommate's mustang... maybe you can get some Zaino and pitch in. For everything you need its about $75, and thats enough to last 2 years (4 applications of 2 coats each every 6 months) Or if you're not sure you want to invest that much in it, split it with somebody else. My roommate and I just take turns ordering whatever Zaino supplies we need.

For you Zanio Bros. users, I may have a kit for sale. I personally don't like it.

i use Eagle One's Wax as You Dry; it waxes ur truck as u dry it off, plus it makes drying alot quicker. for sum reason the wax soaks up the water so u dont have to use multiple towels due to them getting soaked as u dry! it is good stuff, i live by it

Theres nothing wrong with putting a carnuba wax on top of Meguires cleaner wax. It works really well. For our vehicles that only get waxed once a year. I put cleaner wax on and take it off with a good wheel. Then do the Carnuba by hand. My truck I can do all by hand cuz it gets waxed a few more times a year. These instructions came from a family friend who has a detail shop. This technique was also used in the detail shop I worked in through highschool.
