That is absolutly beautiful. I received my Zaino kit Friday afternoon. I will not have time to do the car until next Tuesday, my girl is flying in from MA for the weekend on Thursday and I need to clean the house so she may want to come back :D.

Do you have any close-up's of the finish? Kind of like my wheel/badge pic? I'd like to see how Zaino does on the swurl (sp) marks.

Thanks,

I'll have to take another pic for that detail... will do that tomorrow if it doesn't rain.

One note, I did clay the car down. Only applied one coat of the polish for swirls... I may yet apply another of that.

Which kit did you buy?

I bought the bigger kit... not happy with the leather treatment/conditioner... it gives the leather a gloss appearance. I will be washing it off and use meguirer's.

Absolutely stunning. Love the little teddy bear stuffed animal in the back window. "Umm baby, you just got passed and owned by a purple car with a teddy bear in the back..."

LOL!

I hemmed and hawwed and bought the bigger kit. A few people on the board seemed to like the leather and I liked the description of the tire 'gloss' as it wasn't too glossy. I have not done anything to the leather yet but I do own both the McGuire and Zaino products. I hate to put anything on the leather but I hate the idea of not putting anything on the leather.. It saddens me to hear your results. Sorry for the semi-formal language but my mind is toasty from too much Homework tonight. 35 years and I decide to go to college. What was I thinking?

Zaino on the outside, Meguiars on my leather, Eagle One for everything else (protectant and tires) and *STILL* no idea how to clean alcantra if I need to.

Here's a quote I got from a detailing forum on care of the alcantara:


Huntress buy a micro ragg and weekly get the ragg O so slightly damp and gentle rub in the direction the fabric runs and not back and forth...use a detailing brush from your local auto zone or Pep Boys and make sure it has very soft brisles to brush also in the direction the fabric runs...keep the micro ragg in the car for when you do spill ....coffee Sorry it took so long to reply
Also, here's the cleaning instructions from the manufacturer.

It is that swede stuff you see. The fabric on the roof you need to clean with a pet hair roller or just plain ole prescription sticky tape. Works for me. :sneaky:
