Definitely, but I might pour some of your sealants into my bottles.

Yeah, I really don't think a mass wash/wax is going to work out...we can ATTEMPT it, but I don't have enough material to do a full workshop kinda thing. And you guys will drain my Zaino reservoir.

Don't worry, I'm pretty sure your ZHP 330i is faster than AJ's 325i Sport

I agree. It takes a good 5-6 hours to properly do one car - maybe 4 hours if you're fast. Unless there are multiple people doing it at the same time and Shim's the only expert. I wouldn't trust myself to someone else's car right now even though I "think" I know what I'm doing.

Nah, I'm still learning. I have zero machine experience, that's my next step.

Time to collect a debt

I'm pretty good all month (weekends) as well...its up to Shim

I think this whole thing kinda snowballed (as it tends to be with us DC metro folks ) and it's becoming an all-out Zaino workshop

Hope you have parking and refreshments for 20 cars

Unrelated to zaino but related to detailing...

I Just wanted to mention wheel wax as a good product.
If you hate to see your nice bimmer with those filthy rims,
you should try wheel wax.
Or, you can go all the way like AJ and change the pads.
But, with wheel wax, it is very easy and fast to clean the rims.
just wipe off the dirt with a wet towel.

Maybe Shim could add wheel waxing to his detailing menu?

I was eventually going to order some Poorboy's Wheel Sealant, since I heard good stuff about it. But for now, I usually have enough Zaino left over to coat the wheels with.
