Well, I've waxed it myself a couple times. I bought a Flex and did it myself a couple times. I've had it done "Professionally" a couple times. I get this stuff and just do one coat and I think it looks way better than it ever has before. I'm gonna do another coat and then the finish and see how it turns out. I usually suck REALLY bad taking pics. But I think these came out ok. Anyone have any tippers on how to get this better as I go along without a buffer...feel free to give them to me I'm using a waffle weave to wipe...

Did you use Z-5 (fillers) or just Z-2? I've always found Z to be really easy to apply/remove as long as I remember to dampen the applicator with Z-6 before I start. Z-8 is the one you want to finish her off with.

Going forward wash and then wipe with Z-8. I don't even completely dry any more since I know I will get it with the Z-8. Keeps the amount of wipes to a minimum.

Of course, *I* don't have black . . . .

Very sharp! Wish I could get the same effects on Titanium Silver with Zaino, really like the ease of use, but not nearly the same as on black.

Thanks. Where did you buy them and is it just a bolt on to the standard exhaust. Google isn't pulling up anything on where to buy them.
