Some Zaino Questions and commets.

I have used Zaino for over 8 years now and I should own stock! But anyhow, I'm thinking of trying Z14 to try and shine up my headlight covers but I need some advice,

Also, I'm thinking of trying Z12 for the outside of the front windshield only. No tints, but I wasn't planning on using it other than on the front windshield. Comments?

I ran out of Zaino car wash this weekend and had to buy Meguiars NXT car wash. For me, it was substandard compared to Zaino. Unfortunalty, they only had a big bottle ao I will be giving it away to anyone in the 94597 zip code. Nothing against Meguiars, but I need to just give this away.

Anyhow. No shipping, and no driving far away to meet you. Just buying this crap is enough trouble. Otherwise, gargabe can it is.

Danny

Save the Meg's wash for your wheels and just use the Zaino wash on your paint if you like it better.

I've never used Zaino's glass or plastic polish, but their other stuff is good, so I'd expect it to be good. I use 1Z (Einszett) glass polish and it is very good. Windshield is the only place that should need it. The other glass surfaces can be polished too, except the side mirrors, which have an anti-reflective coating and probably shouldn't be polished.

+1 I use Griot's Car Wash on my wheels and the more expensive Z7 on the car itself.

Part of the reason I hate the NXT is the crap job it did on my wheels. I never had to scrub that hard before.

I got these today with my resupply of Z products. My local Zaino rep recommended I go to TAP plastics and buy Novus #2 Plastic Polish.for my headlight covers instead of using Z14. Anyhow, I am anxious to see how well these two items perform.

Also, I realized I can use the NXT car wash for my wife's car, so it's not a waste after all,,,

i think you didn't like it because the NXT car wash is a harsh wash. It probably stripped a lot of the sealant and wax that you put on it
