Yeah yeah, I do want to, but it says that the proper treatment is out of sunlight. I only have a one car garage so I don't know where I can do it. And in Colorado, the weather changes every 15 mins. I was wearing shorts this morning and by afternoon it was below 35 degrees. Do you know which products I should get? Thanks Rob.

Huh? In the "shade"? Not what it says on the Zaino home page...and I've put it on in blazing sun; not CO high, but 5000 ft elev. with some serious Carolina blue sky UVs pouring in.

The Zaino page of instructions is written as a mkting tool and to help "enable" the endless line of A-O car nuts out there in webland...I think the instructions and tips are over done; sorta like writing 3 pages on how to drive a manual trans: it sounds impossible until you jes' get in the freaking car and do it!
And, I don't think the umptyseven prods are needed but that's just me.

From Zaino application pages:
"I have applied Z-2 PRO in the Arizona sun and it dried in approx. 3 to 5 minutes. I have also applied it in 38 degree temperature and it took about 2 to 3 hours to dry. Be patient. It's worth it. Different situations affect drying times."

I purchased a starter kit but you can start with ZFX, Z2 and Z6 to get you going.

Is this the only place to order it? I have the whole day Sunday off and would like to do this. But the site says it takes around 5 days for delivery and today is Wednesday. Does PepBoys or some other place carry it?

If you think that picture is amazing, you should see all the other pictures I have with Zaino on black cars.

Even cooler is some videos I have of water beading off the wax. I'll upload them as soon as I get home, I'm in the middle of a Physics lesson right now

Benathon, there are a few Z distributors around the US...check the net. Ecklers, the Vette joint, also sells it online. I have never seen it at PepBoys, AZ, et al.

Yeah, it's about a 5 day mail job from Sal in NJ. Buy it from them, check is fine, and you'll have another weird warm weekend there in Denver, I'm sure.

I already purchased the Zaino kit. I should be getting it on Tuesday (tomorrow). The weather this week is not going to be good (under 30 degrees) so I won't get a chance to use it.

Thanks for the tip, but I already purchased the Zaino; I'm worried about how time consuming it will be but I have heard nothiing but good reviews about the product.
