TIPS & TRICKS TO MAKE YOUR CAR A SHOW CAR!
I would start by claying your car or truck for the best finish you can get. You can get info on claying on our web site at www.hcvind.com and click on Zaino and then click on Zaino Application Tips, this way you are sure to have the best surface condition to start with. Make sure vehicle is clean.
Apply Zaino Bros.' Show Car Polish to a clean 100% cotton towel or applicator. We have found the best way of applying Show Car Polish is with our #314 Custom Polish applicator. Just slightly dampen the applicator with water or Z-6 "Gloss Enhancer" spray. Apply Show Car Polish directly to applicator (Z-2, Z-3 or Z-5 with ZFX), and apply a very thin coat, you want to use the least amount of polish that you can. This technique will help increase flow and spreadability on the paint surface and yield more coats per bottle. Let dry 30 to 40 minutes, depending on how humid it is your drying time maybe much faster, or slower. Please use Show Car Polish on all wheels, metal, and chrome, painted trim and plastic lenses. Remove with a clean 100% (Made in USA) large bath size white cotton towel, or DF cotton microfiber towel, turning towel frequently until all polish is removed. A large towel is necessary to completely remove polish. You will see a "wet-looking" crystal-clear, ultra deep gloss. Note: It is not necessary to use ZFX every time you polish your vehicle, but it does give you the brightest and hardest finish possible, and now Z-CS Clean Seal takes that to another level.
Want people to envy the look of your vehicle. Want that Show Winning Edge and Custom Paint Look. Want the deepest, wettest, slickest, clearest, richest, and shiniest paint ever. Apply three coats of Show Car Polish waiting at least 24 hours before applying the next coat. Show Car Polish will continue to get deeper and wetter with each succeeding coat, up to five coats. You can however, apply as many coats as you want of Show Car Polish. You will not believe the depth and optical clarity of the wet-looking gloss. Follow up with Z-6 "Gloss Enhancer" or Z-8 Grand Finale between every coat of Show Car Polish and see how Incredible your vehicle looks!
Want an even higher level of optical light refraction and reflectivity. Here's how. When applying Show Car Polish do the following; on all Top surfaces of vehicle, use a back and forth motion (from front bumper towards windshield). On all Side surfaces (doors, fenders, etc.) use a vertical motion, up and down. This technique will increase the way light attracts and reflects off of Show Car Polish. The bodylines and contours of your vehicle will seem to glow. This trick really works. Remember to use Z-6 "Gloss Enhancer" spray between every coat of Show Car Polish, and finish with Z-8 Grand Finale for the best and brightest finish.
Zaino Bros.' Z-5 is the first non-abrasive polish that will eliminate by filling, swirl marks, fine scratches and spidering, without hurting the integrity of the clear coat. It does this in stages, anywhere between 1 to 5 coats, depending on vehicle color. With each application of Z-5 polish, you will see the swirl marks and fine scratches gradually lessen, until the marks are no longer visible and your paint will look flawless. You should switch to Z-2 as soon as you are happy with the way the paint finish looks. Example, no more swirls, scratches etc. It's up to you. Z-2 has higher optical properties than Z-5. You can switch from Z-2 to Z-5 and then back to Z-2 as often as you want. All Show Car Polishes are 100% compatible. For the highest optical paint enhancement. You should always end up with Z-2 as the last coat of polish.
Zaino Bros.' Z-6 Ultra Clean "Gloss Enhancer" Spray is the ultimate maintenance product, or use Z-8 Grand Finale for unmatched shine and slickness. Z-6 will remove light dust and soil between washes and will make your paint slicker, wetter looking, deeper and reinforce the polish system and UV protection. Because of its unique optical enhancers, Z-6 "Gloss Enhancer" spray will create a three-dimensional, ultra-high, light refracting paint finish. Its super anti-static properties will reduce dust and dirt pickup by up to 60%. The more you use Z-6 "Gloss Enhancer" spray the slicker and more dust-free your paint will be. Remember a little Zaino polish goes a long way; keep your coats very thin for the best results.
NOTE: Z-6 is very concentrated. Use sparingly, very lightly mist a small 1' x 1' section at a time and immediately wipe with a 100% cotton towel, turning towel frequently, until completely slick and dry. Repeat until entire vehicle is done. Do not let Z-6 dry on car without wiping. If product drying occurs before wiping, reapply Z-6 to affected areas and repeat drying procedure. Less than one ounce will do an average size vehicle. Works great on rims, chrome, trim and plastic.

Zaino recommends using only Large Bath size, 100% Made in USA White Cotton towels with all of our products. Cotton T-shirts are too small for polish removal and not as absorbent or fluffy as towels and most contain polyester. We have found that certain towels; especially those manufactured abroad, although they say 100% cotton. They are not; they include a blend of polyester and nylon that will definitely scratch and leave swirl marks in your paint finish. The rule of thumb is to use high quality Brand Name large bath towels that say 100% cotton and made in the USA. DF cotton microfiber towels are another good choice, you can read more about these on our web site at www.hcvind.com . Towels sold in bags in Auto Stores are not 100% cotton. Look carefully on the bag it will probably say made in Pakistan or Bangladesh or other foreign country. Do not use these towels. They will cause swirl marks and scratches on the paint surface. Always, remove the stitching around the towel prior to use. Bargain store polish applicators also contain polyester and nylon fibers and are not to be used. Also, when washing your towels, please do not use any type of fabric softeners. Always use White towels. Do not use Colored Towels they contain dyes. These towels can be purchased at stores like Bed Bath and Beyond, wash these towels in warm water with liquid laundry detergent, use a double rinse cycle and NO bleach. Dry towels in dryer and remove to hang dry while still damp, this will help reduce static build up in your towels, high heat drying can break down the towels nap
