Is there any? I hate using all of these polishes/waxes that you can't even tell where your putting the stuff.

All of the polish makes brag about how amazing their products are. Make something that works well and I can tell where I'm putting it. That would amaze me.:)

you have a QSM car don't you? :p

just look at the panel you're working on at a shallow angle (ie: looking down the side of the car from next to the taillight).;)
No, mine is Torrid Red but Zaino and other polishes I have tried don't show up very good when applying. It's hard to tell if you've missed any spots.

I guess I'll just have to live with it since I like the results. It's just frustrating during the process due to not being able to see what your doing.

I don't have a problem.....at all..........with Zaino........

put it on thin, dries to a fine white haze....

seeing the results is what counts...

and add protection to that......

no brainer..

i have a torrid goat - I've tried many different over the counter waxs and cleaners and such that can be bought at any local auto parts store with varying degrees of satisfaction to outright frustration with some

after reading all the raves about zaino - i decided to take the plunge and bought an entire kit from zaino..

i have never been more pleased with the way a polish goes on and wipes off

it was very easy - goes on smooth - wipes off beautifully - no dust, no swirl marks if done correctly and with a certain amount of patience.. the first application is time consuming if you chose to do it right..

i washed , clay barred , washed, then polished - wiped - then polished again...of this is a condensed procedure

after i was done - i was amazed to see a small cotton towel i had - when put on the hood - would slide off by itself as the surface of the hood was so smooth -

the water sheeting is amazing - after a few coats of zaino - cleaning is a snap

it is well worth the effort and the money ...

That's what I dislike about Zaino, too.

Do small sections at a time, like 2' x 2' and don't sweat it if you miss a small spot. That is what the additional coats are for.

My car is yellow and so is Tropi-care polish, so I know exactly what you mean. :shiner:

Try a silver or white car...that's lots of fun. I just did my Mom's platinum silver DTS yesterday, and it was a bitch.
