View Full Version : Car wash victory!

Yesterday (Sunday), I washed the Cobra for the second time. Fortunately it wasn't a car wash disaster (see previous thread) like the first one.

Based upon Firme's advice and advice from other sage members, I used Zaino. I ordered a starter kit from their web site and tried it out. I carefully followed the instructions, put on two coats and was amazed.

Even on a new car it made the paint "like buttah." The shine is fantastic. It went on and came off easy. I think the trick is - a little goes a long ways.

Anyway if you haven't tried Zaino I would highly recommend it, I used to be a Meguire's (sp?) kind of guy, from now on it's Zaino's for me.

I took some photo's and when I have time to figure out how I'll posted them. Thank's all for the great advice!

yeah, I second that, let's see the sweet mystic!! That is easier than posting on here. I finally have my car posted on there.


I just noticed under my user name it says free poster. What does that mean? I see there are SCMC member under some, and other things for others.

Well when you've posted enough (I don't know how many posts) then you can change what it says under your name. SEE mine says BADD ASP just like my licence plate does! :D :thumbsup:

Jeez and to think that all this time I've thought that when I read in my high school's history book that some Asp killed Cleopatra... I thought it was a typo. :D

Here's a little more ASP info:

Asp, common name for a venomous snake of the cobra family. Also called the Egyptian cobra, it is found throughout Africa. The asp was worshipped in ancient Egypt and was used as the symbol on the crown of the pharaohs. The Egyptian queen Cleopatra is believed to have killed herself with an asp. Other venomous snakes also known as asps include the European asp, or asp viper, and the horned sand viper. See Cobra; Viper. Scientific classification: The asp belongs to the family Elapidae and is classified as Naja haje. The European asp, classified as Vipera aspis, and the horned sand viper, classified as Cerastes cornuta, belong to the family Viperidae.

So Vipers are ASPs also just a different type of Cobra! :D :thumbsup:

AND if you're a techno weenie an ASP is an Application Service Provider but that just doesn't fit here! :D ;) ;) ;)
