Well last night I decided to break out the Zaino on my newly purchased 06 Madza6 MazdaSpeed. Only 400 miles on it.

Here is the process:

Wash with Meguiars Car Wash
Clay Bar (The entire car - windows included)
Wash again

Typically here you would use Z5 for swirls or scratches but since the car is brand new there is no need.

Zaino Z2 with the new ZFX additive over the entire car including windows
Zaino Z6 Ultra Clean Gloss Enhancer over the entire car including windows
Zaino Z8 Grand Finale Spray Seal over entire car including windows

Armor All for the tires.

Took me about 3 1/2 hours to complete this process.

I believe the pics speak for themselves. The car feels so smooth..

Looks great, got it on quick so your paint should stay perfect as long as you keep up with it. I hope the speed6 is still around when I graduate.

Not sure I understand your question. Do you mean to apply the product?

The PC is a great tool, but for someone simply using the Z-2/Z-5 produycts, it's overkill. The PC comes in handy for the actual polishing.

Its not rough at all actually. I enjoy it and its great exercise. I can see where certain people would have problems doing it.

thats true, it helps a ton when you want to polish. it also takes off the wax a lot quicker as well.
