First zaino wash after rinsed with power waser (takes care of most dirt) z?

Actually I clean my wheels first before I wash the car (w/o polish) just to get them clean.

Zanio wash. Dry. The polish thats yellow, NOT PINK.

Apply to entire car except tires and wheels.

Wait 30+ mins remove with towell.

Spray the gloss finish and wipe clean.

Polish wheels and shine tires. Windex all windows outside and in.....

Leather cleaner and conditioner.

Also every 2 days I clean and polish my wheels. It makes them look bigger then when they are dirty.... They look like 18's when they are shining clean......

I run in cycles. I wash my car every week.

Week 1 wash and full detail

week 2 just exterior wash

week 3 both again

week 4 just exterior wash


and If I have a hot date that night its done that morning even if i have biz to attend to. haha

(One day I did it in 15 degree weather and the top of my car i forgot to dry and it was instantly ice. FUCKIN COLD!

BUT, I did have heated water!

Good work, but I wouldn't use windex on your windows. The amonia can affect the tint. They make tinted-window-safe-cleaner.

How many coats of Z-2 or Z-5 with Z-6 did you do? Did you finish with Z-8? I did 3 cycles and took me almost all day. I was tired, but at the end it looked awesome. BTW, is that Black Metalic or Monaco Blue Metalic? :rocks:

Its black saph.

I do generally 1 cycle unless my date is SUPER hot, lol jk.

Not familiar with the z codes. But I used the yellow colored polish. I like the pink colored polish better but I dont have any left. And yes I do finish with the gloss spray.

I love the tire solution. Makes em look like brand new, a deep colored black.
