Nice!!! Reminds me that my baby is in need of a coat of wax. Slightly different set of needs though as the front is mostly wrapped in clearbra!

Have you had rainbow water spots on the blackline glass trim? I have heard that one of the Zaino products is good at removing this? Any experience?

WoW. Nice job!
Good products.
-Try Zymol HD Cleanse as your paint cleaner someday. Been using it for years and I swear by it.

Car looks fantastic. I have used Zaino for many many years as well. Plan to do the same this weekend.

I have a water softener so no real spotting especially rainbow. I do remember having my 135 washed elsewhere and the blackline had some sort of blemish and using zaino over it did remove it or hide it. I cant remember which product but it has to be 6 or cs because they were gone by the time I got around to using 8. Best part is no buffing required, just spray and wipe.

I dont use Z7 bc it doesnt foam up through a lance.
