    Sorry buddy I missed your post. Oh well better late than never...
    The Zaino kit. Look on their website ordering page. You can only buy it from them.

    You want ZKIT-1 if you want the claybar and polish and soap.

    I got the ZKIT-2 because it also has the leather cleaner/conditioner and it works very well. It also has tire shine stuff too. That's ok. Nothing to be excited about.

    That stuff lasts. I have had the kit for well over a year now and only running low on the quick detail spray. Still got plenty of the rest left.


    Here's the Vette eye candy for ya. This is with a fresh coat of Zaino and before I started running it on track. Now it has tons of pit marks in the paint...

    Wax doesn't stay on very long. The best way is to wash the truck/car with Dawn liquid dish soap. Use a rough sponge and soap it up a couple of times. It cleans really well and eats up any way or other residue.

    OMG NO NO NO! dont use dish soap. it eats into the clearcoat and paint and gets underneath. dont do that!
    get a claybar kit and remove the wax that way. definately dont use a rough sponge either. might as well run sand paper across it all

    I have heard before not to use dish soap. I am going to just wait until I wash it a couple of times and clay bar it, then try new wax.

    I don't use Dawn every time I wash the car. Just when I want to strip it down. I said a rough sponge, like an open cell type. Not the back side of scouring pad or sandpaper, jeez... One good washing with Dawn is not going to run away with all your clearcoat. I've been doing this for years with no problems. After the Zaino is on then use the Zaino car wash with a microfiber sponge. You're washing paint, not a baby's skin.

    P21 Total Auto Wash would do what you need done with out harming the paint/clear coat.

    I recently used Griot's garage products on my Nissan, about to use it on my GMC Yukon. No complaints for Far. Though it might be more expensive then other brands.
