Looking good. I looked around the net on using Dawn Blue with a lot differing opinions. How has it worked for you?

You only use it once. Too alkaline.
Zaino is a polymer paint sealant and polish.
I'm just re-doing it as the car was truly neglected, so I went all the way back to sanitize and clay.
The Dawn is going back to the kitchen and I use the Zaino Z7(I think) from now on.

Zaino exhaustion.
Dawn to wash off the grease and waxes.
Claybar to get the bits.
Dawn again to remove the final bits.
Isopropyl and water bath. Prep done.

Went out, my ZFX accelerant has dried up and now I'm at no-go with a perfect prepped car.
Saw on facebook that one of my buddies just zainoed his car. Texted him. Sure, come on over and get some ZFX!
2 coats, and 2 coats of glosser.
It's never, ever looked better.
Beer me.

2 new coats zaino z5, and a topcoat of z2.

It looks sooo good in person. Cell phone pics don't do it justice.

Ditto,



That's it, I'm retiring and reverting to puttering!
Hey, maybe we can putter together!


Wait, that just doesn't sound or look right.

I think I'm going to give up on bugging Rob about his CR and turn to bugging you JB

Car looks fabulous as always. Best NFR Type S I've ever seen
