    I’ve seen a few threads asking about Z-PC, and wanted to share a recent detail I found on the net.

    For years, visual imperfections such as swirl marks, scuffs, scratches and buffer holograms were the scourge of perfectionists everywhere. They infected vehicles without any discrimination - show cars, daily drivers, imports, domestics and custom vehicles all suffered.

    The shop absolutely hammered it with a rotary (the entire car). It sits outside 24 x 7, and the glaze the shop used wore off quick and left one of the worse looking hack jobs that I've ever seen.

    BEFORE PICTURES:

    Prep-Work:
    Dawn Wash
    Clay bar

    Polish:
    Zaino Z-PC with a machine polisher
    I’m pretty impressed that Z-PC was able to tackle black paint in such poor condition.

    Protection:
    Z-6 (wipe down)
    Z-AIO All-in-one (emulsifying cleaner, very mild abrasive & "primer-base")
    Z-5 PRO Show Car Polish (for Swirl Marks & Fine Scratches)
    Z-2 PRO Show Car Polish for Clear Coated Car Finishes (for the "wet" look)
    Z-CS Clear Seal (for the paint, glass, trim, wheels and lighting)
    Z16 for the tires.

    AFTER PICTURES:

    NOTE: Zaino Z-PC Fusion IS ABRASIVE and should only be used when necessary. Z-PC Fusion is not intended for frequent use.

    It's the world's first (and only) true, self-dissolving, fused tri-particulate, diminishing abrasive system. It works equally well when used by hand or machine, making it as versatile as it is effective! Just wipe it on, work it in (either by hand or machine) and wipe it off.

    Unlike other paint prep products that are typically loaded with cheap oils and fillers, the water-based formula of Zaino Z-PC Fusion requires no washing afterward - just apply and remove Zaino Z-PC Fusion and go straight to applying your favorite Zaino protectant. Further, there's virtually no effort required to apply and remove Zaino Z-PC Fusion.

    Get that Zaino Zealot shit the fuck out of here..... :gtfo:

    There's NO FUCKING WAY that Z-PC took care of that much damage by itself (and I say that having had personal experience with the product). Unless of course the car was polished 20 times over with it. :nono:

    How come most of the after pictures don't have the sun shining directly on the paint?

    I've used Z-PC before and it does a decent job on light swirls using an orange pad, but unless that Buick has really soft paint for some reason, I don't know of any mild polish that can do that much correction even with a rotary.

    I take it you are either a rabid Zaino fan or a distributor?

    There aren't ANY threads here asking about Z-PC. Ever.

    I used Zaino PC on several homes that were two bed room ramblers before Katrina and now after they are four room homes with three floors and a pool proving how amazing this stuff is.

    Frankly I've given up trying to post detailing advice to non detailing specific forums. There have been a couple sites that literally ran me off because I kept telling them that reaching for Turtle Wax Rubbing Compound and a "good 'ol can of Rain Dance" could potentially cause more harm than good and wasn't real detailing.

    Their response to my laying out the steps and proper technique of an exterior detail? "Fuck that, that's not necessary... too much damn work and it doesn't even look any better than it does when I get done spending two 8 hour days straight rubbing on it with my Turtle Wax. I'd be working a month if I did all that shit!"

    Funny, 'all that shit' that they claim would take them a month actually only takes 4-5 hours on average when done right. :mamoru:

    I've used it before and was happy with the results. I still have a bottle of ZPC that I use from time to time. My brother put a mojave pinstripe on my dad's WJ and it took it out no problem. Of course it wasn't near as bad as that.

    However I've since moved to P21S and am happier with it.

    That being said I've never understood the rabid zaino hate that I see here. Why do you guys think it sucks so bad?

    Not the product but the users. They aren't called "Zaino Nazis" for nothing. Their attitude is that if you don't use a Zaino, you are a complete idiot when it comes to detailing.
