Well the other night I got my 5th coat of Zaino's Z5 paint polish I know this may sound strange but I've noticed a big difference in how the paint looks now with the 5th coat on as compaird to just a few days ago when it only had 4. I think I will put another coat on when I get back from exchanging my new printer tomorrow. Zaino is the best paint polish I've ever used. It is kind of a pain to get going with it cause of all the paint prep work that is involved but after that is done you just wipe it on, let it sit for 30min, and wipe it off. Plus unlike wax the more coats you put on the better the paint looks. I've heard from friends that once you get to about the 10-12 coat range your car starts to look like it is wet all the time.

To me it was well worth 5+hours I spent clay baring my paint so that I could use Zaino. I don't know how old your car is but the newer it is the easier clay baring it is. My car is about 16 years old so it took quite a bit of time to get 16 years of buildup off of the paint.

I should be close to 10 coats by the end of the month. If you check out their website they have some cool pics. One pic that they have is sweet, it looks like the image is distorted but if you take a second look the pic is actually a reflection in the paint.

I got the pic off of Zaino's site. The problem with wax is that after about 7-8 coats it starts to get somewhat cloudy looking, Zaino doesn't do this. There are people that have 50+ coats on their cars. Yes, wax looks nice if you have a few coats but there will be a point where it just doesn't look right if you get too many on.

The reflection pic looks photoshopped. I'd like to see a member pic reproducing it.

someone told me if you put a coat of carnauba wax over zaino, it'll give it a deeper wet look shine; anyone tried this.

I've never heard of anyone doing this. Zaino has a wet look on its own.

i want to start working on making the paint look nice on my 87 soon...

do i put on wax and polish or do u just pick one of them?

Im guessing i should go with teh Zaino since we both have old cars and it seems like it works pretty good with old ones
