    well...you are all certainly are entitled to your opinions, but I've tried Zaino on my black cobra, and I've tried clearkote. Zaino was very easily beaten.

    You guys might also want to cruise around detailing forums such as autopia and detailcity...I haven't come across a single professional detailer that uses Zaino yet.

    Zaino isn't a bad product. It's actually great for the home user and it gives fantastic durability. But..it won't give you the best results on a black car.

    i guess the only inconvience zaino has is it's cure time. Other than that's nice. Where can i find "your" clearkote products?

    They're not mine. There's a guy named Scott who is one of the sponsors at svtperformance.com. His website is www.specialtymotoring.com. He sells Clearkote and Poorboy's stuff. Very helpful guy...send him an email and he'll tell you what the best way to go is. He recommended the "Clearkote Killer Combo" to me along with Poorboy's SSR 2.5. I posted a pic of my car on the previous page of this thread. That was my car after applying his stuff this past Saturday. You can also ask stallion98GT what he thinks...he saw my car in person on Sunday (two days ago).

    On black or red cars, you definitely want to go with a Carnauba wax for best results. Zaino is more of a sealant than a wax...it doesn't have Carnauba in it. Neither does NXT.

    Like I said, you can have Zaino clarity and depth as well as the wet,dark and black look of a caranuba if you top your layers of Zaino with something like S100, ClearKote's Vanilla Moose, Quik Shine, etc. and still have the protection of the Zaino. Just keep it fresh with a caranuba on top and the Zaino will last for a year +. Mine is still on it.

    Here's a direct sunlight shot of mine.

    Zaino has nothing to do with the lack or presence of swirl marks.
