Sounds good. To many detailers this comes down to personal preference. I personally like the look of a wax topper and appreciate the additional protective characteristics that sealants tend to lag behind on. Many detailers feel that waxes, although much shorter lived in durability, do protect the surface better for bird droppings and water spots. I prefer the deep wet look of a quality carnauba wax, but again that is preference.

Two great options for Sparkling Graphite would be Poorboy's Natty's Red Paste Wax or P21S Concours Carnauba Wax. P21S is a little easier to work with and comes with a very nice applicator pad that conveniently stores in the top lid. Both give off a nice deep glow and are reasonably priced.

Let us know if you decide to top the Zaino treatment with wax and what you think of your results.
