Z-PC / polishing question? Help appreciated.

I ordered Z-AIO and Z-Clear Seal. The company sent me AIO and Z-PC polish by mistake and told me to keep it. I am not a guru and have never used polish before.

I do have a light etching/scratch in the clearcoat from wiping bird dropping off the hood with a wet paper towel (won't do that again).

I tried using the AIO twice on that area and the scratch/etching is a little better, but still there. Reading what I have on Z-PC, I am concerned that if I hand rub that area on a Black Sapphire it might end up hazy or something.

Can I carefully use the Z-PC by hand, and follow up with the Z-AIO, without messing something up ??

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but like I said, never used polish before.

Thank you.

Gill.

It's not a dumb question. I can't give you an informed answer, but I would suggest calling Zaino and posing the question to them. I've found them quite helpful in answering questions about their products.

Sorry, just saw that you aren't "in country." Maybe you can ask them via email.

zpc is a light polish so it should be rather easy to use

Z-PC is a very user friendly. If you're applying it by hand, it's unlikely that it will cause any hazing or marring. It's a great product for light swirls and blemishes.

Thanks. I just looked at their website again and saw that they have normal (not 1-800) numbers that I can call from overseas. I will give them a buzz, or drop them a line.

I appreciate the responses, I'm not as paranoid about trying it now.

ZPC does not have enough cut even with a machine to cause any marring. You can use it by hand and the follow up with ZAIO with no problems.
