Angry Down the Draino with Zaino!!

I spent a week putting Zaino on my Cobra. Followed the instructions to the letter. The car looked great and I mean really great. Very deep look, smooth slick finish, fantastic. After three months during which it was washed weekly and additional coats put on I started noticing spots on the frontend. Every time I washed the car I would find more spots left after I washed the bugs off. These spots would not come off with Zaino car wash or Zip or even DAWN. I finally had to use a polishing compound and glaze to get the front end cleaned up. It looked like the bugs were leaving a stain in the finish of the car. This never happened to me using other waxes. Emailed Zaino and was told to use 3M Swirl mark remover and then wash the car with Dawn and start the polishing process all over again.

I DON"T THINK SO!!

Going back to my 3M show car glaze and Liquid Glass. Now if I could just get back the money and the time I spent on this stuff.

Bugs seem to come off fine but they leave a faint shadow in the finish. You probably could not see it on anything but a white car. Problem is mine is white.

Thats why I like to stick with Meguiars. They've been around for alot longer than Zaino and are more trustworthy. wonder why the zaino polish would leave marks though. Hmmmm.....

Yes but Meguiars is a wax and will start breaking down long before Zaino will, which is a polymer based polish. You also can't put but 1 coat on your car with Meguiars but you can put multiple coats on with Zaino.They may look the same (or close ) when applied but soon the wax will break down and you will have to put a new coat on more often than you would with Zaino.
And the Z-2 show car polish from Zaino cost $12.95 the same as Meiguars Gold Class, so its not cheaper. With having to use Meiguiars more often, Zaino maybe cheaper in the long run. IMHO

Cool

Try the new Meguiars with that is synthetic polymer. I think it is Meguiars NXT. Nice stuff and only $14.95 a bottle. Used on my Chrome yellow after the polish and clay bar. It is great!

Does the new Meguirs NX have anything to repel dust/pollen?? I used the clay bar, cleaner wax, then the gold class (all Meguirs) but the car is black and it seems to collect pollen and dust like a magnet.

Not to my knowledge. I don't know anything that has something like that in it but, if you ever find something let me know...cause even on yellow it shows..especially when you sit in the driver's seat and look at onto the hood!
