All of you should be aware by now that Zaino has 2 new products. Zaino All In One (AIO) and Clear Seal (CS) are his latest offerings. Used them both on my '99 black Jeep Cherokee with extraordinary results.

AIO was applied with my Porter Cable random orbital and didn't take a lot of time. It can be applied by hand, but the polisher is so much more labor friendly. Drying did not take a long time and the residue was removed with a DF Concours towel. I then went over the finish with Z6 Gloss Enhancer to ensure that all residue was removed before applying CS.

It is important to shake the CS before use and to preload the applicator pad. I applied 2 or 3 sprays of CS (Zaino says 1, but 2 or 3 initially seemed to work better for me) to the pad, and then holding the bottle about 4" from the surface, give a single spray and work into the finish over a 18" to 24" area. No hard rubbing is necessary, just get it covered. You can apply CS to any exterior surface...textured plastic, rubber moldings, glass, chrome, lenses, etc. Let it dry until it disappears and you're done.

AIO by itself has a durability of 3 to 4 months. Top it with CS and the durability goes to 9 months.

I doubt that my 135,000 mile Jeep looked this good when it was new! I even applied it to the glass and it looks awesome. As fantastic as looks now, it can be enhanced even further by adding Z2 and or Z5 to further increase the gloss, depth, and wet look that Zaino is so famous for. I'll add those to the finish when I have time and top it again with CS.

All you need to do to maintain the finish is to use Z6 and/or Z8 and Z7.
