Default Who uses Zaino?

Had my Ram since July 7th and just now got around to doing the first Zaino treatment. Actually started out with de-badging the truck, then using some of the Z -PC swirl remover to clean up the paint around the badges, which turned into a full day of washing and waxing with the Zaino AIO (all in one). I have lots of their other products but since the RAM is a daily driver and the other toys get all of the good product, I figured I would use the AIO on the truck (since it is the product I have the most of and a truck this big sure uses a lot of product!)

Anyhow, thought I would ask who else uses the best polish on the planet... I'll post some pics later on!

We use Zainos are we are pleased with their products, though there are a few here who aren't. It REALLY shined up our 08' Challenger!

I've used Zanio for about 5-6 years. I use it on my trucks and also on the bosses Chy.300. I'm extremely satisfied with their products and think they do an outstanding job. My only complaint is their shipping costs----way way to high! Everyone has their own favorite--mine just happens to be Zanio.

Yup! I use the best polishes [subjectively], but it's not Zaino. From others experiences, sounds like you should only use a few ounces of Z-AIO to cover your whole truck. A little Zaino goes a long ways. Looks fantastic!

All told, I probably only used 3-4 ounces on the truck, but since I'm used to only 1 oz or so on my Challenger, it seemed like a lot. Not to mention, the AIO has a cleaner in it, and in order to get the full benefit of the cleaner, I used a bit more product than I normally would. It wasn't all that bad, but it was obvious this truck needed the extra attention!

If it's your first time(LOL)--I'd wash your truck with Dawn dish soap and then clay bar it. Then the surface should be ready for your Zanio. Go to their web site and they give you a step by step detail of how to mix their product and how to apply it and in what order. If you follow their suggestions you should be OK. REMEMBER do not use too much product. A very little goes a long long way. They even have a 800# you can call for questions. IMHO you have chosen an excellent product. After your done with the Zanio you might think about putting a coat of Collinite 915 on your truck. It will give it a little extra "POP". I put a coat of Zanio #2 on my truck about every 4-6 weeks and use the detailer after every wash. Always use a good microfiber towel when using Zanio--or any wax or sealant for that matter.
Good Luck
Jay
