z5

what if you use z5 on a light colored vehicle (grey) instead of z2 ?

so you do this:
wash
clay
zpc
z5
z6

Z2 is just a finer version of Z5 (I believe) and it would work just fine. I think it does a little bit more swirl filling than Z2 does, but the shine isn't quite as deep as Z2.

Z5 has fillers, Z2 does not

Z2 has higher optical clarity than Z5

if you dont want to fill in swirls, just go with Z2.

or what i used to do... use both!

^ Good suggestion - I've used both too and it works great. Do the Z2 after the Z5...

Two coats of Z5 topped with two coats of Z2 does the trick!
