Does anyone else have a problem with the Z2 or Z5 drying? I have even left it on overnight and the next morning it is still not dry. I use the finger test to see if it's dry and it just smears. I wipe it off anyway and it just takes a long time and a lot of effort.

Any suggestions?

And I use the accelerator at the recommended mixture of no more than 5 drops per ounce of Z2/Z5.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

You might want to try a lighter coat.

If I fill up that little bottle they give with polish, I use 9 drops of zfx, just to make sure it dries. And I live in New Mexico, it not moist here.

Even if you have smears, z-6 will get them off in the end.

Good Luck :D

I only used 4 drops of zfx for 2/5 of the bottle filled and i was zainoing in the fog...

and still, it dries almost immediately...

of course, i don't recommend doing it when it is foggy but living in nor cal near the coast is almost unpredictable to determine when the fog will move in...

yeah, i'm thinking you're applying too thick. try slightly wetting the applicator with Z6, 5 drops of polish in a N-S-E-W & center pattern and spread with fingers. Then apply to FX and you're good to go.

When you apply it, you are not supposed to really see the polish on the car. Not like the old wax was.

Two or three drops on the applicator and several swipes. If it is on that thick it would take forever to dry, if ever, and it would be a pain to remove.

Hey, I'm only giving Zaino a shot to compete with Zymol. I'd hate to be accused of speaking incorrectly without having all the evidence! :wink:

Zaino experience

Well, I got up about 7am today and started the Zaino process as below:

Dawn wash/rinse
Z-18 clay bar
Dawn wash/rinse
Blow dry (didn't work that great) and towel dry
Z-5/ZFX
Buff
Z-6
Z-2/ZFX
Buff
Z-6
Z-2/ZFX
Buff
Z-6

Notes/Comments: (bottle never did say-but assumed a full bottle is 2 ounces).

Mixed 3/4 of a bottle Z-5 and had some left over. After Z-5 layer, mixed 1/2 of a bottle Z-2 and that was about right.

Sprayed applicator with Z-6 and then used the Z-5, z-2. I was expecting the Z-5/Z-2 to go on smoother and easier. You still have to rub some and make sure the applicator doesn't get "dry" creating a streaking effect when applying. Had to really look closely to make sure Z-2 was getting applied everywhere. Buffing dry was easier than Zymol since it 's not applied as thick.

Z-6 was great (smells good too!) and was easy to apply.

Started at 7am and was finished at 10:30am. Not bad.

Feel and look is great. Clearer and glasier look than my beloved Zymol. We'll wait and see about the longevity and durability as compared to Zymol.

Also, you don't seem to have to worry about Zaino getting on the black plastic trim like other waxes. It doesn't create the white film that gets into the pits of the plastic.

Any comments about my applicaton of Zaino?
