Rain beads!

I sealed my paint with Zaino AIO, f/b Z2/Z5 back in Nov 2008. I maintain my car with ONR at QD strength (to save water), or if its really dirty with a wet wash using Meguiars GC, both followed by DG Aquawax.

Rain is always refreshing here in SD because it is such a rare occurrence, and to my pleasant surprise, this is what I saw on the roof of my car when leaving work today:

Great pictures!

From the shape of the beads of water, it looks like the Zaino is holding up well.
