    Which Zaino Polish Looks Best on WRB?

    I haven't used Zaino in about 7 years, but when I did, I loved the stuff. Back then I used the older Z-2 formulation, I think. When applied to bright silver followed by the Z-6 spray, it looked awesome!

    But now I see that Z-5 Pro is available, and Zaino's website state that Z-5 Pro may be better suited for darker vehicles, especially those with swirl marks (which I don't have) or fine scratches (yeah, I have some of those). I would consider WRB a darker color. However, some users of Z-5 Pro are layering it will Z-2. Why not just stay with Z-5 and call it a day?

    So many questions, I know. Basically looking to use one polish (either Z-2 Pro or Z-5 Pro) in conjunction with ZFX and Z-6. I'd also maybe go Z-AIO, but I understand that Zaino actually adheres well to Klasse AIO, which I own and need to use up!

    Any help and experience will be appreciated. Thanks!

    AIO is the best for everyday applications.... But the good ol classic Z5 followed up by Z2, topped with Z16 has always been a winner for me!!!

    I last used Zaino back in 2005.
    It is the detailing worlds best kept secret..only its not a secret.

    Just go to the Zaino website:
    Zaino Store

    I plan on using it again once my new WRX arrives in a week or 2.

    Nothing against Opti-Coat or any other product, but I found Zaino to be easy to use, durable and even saved my 350z from being scratched by a rusted rough square pole my fender hit...I had 25 coats of Zaino!
    It just smudged the Zaino but didnt scratch!
    So I did a spot removal and reapplication.
    Believer in that stuff ever since.
    Up the Irons!

    I used Z-5 on my WRB bugeye back in the day and it looked AMAZING.. although a big part of that was that I had the entire car wet sanded and resprayed with PPG paint. Soooo much better than OEM Subaru paint.
