    More reviews by teh Cavallino

    Ok so I spent some time detailing the Z today and I used some new griots products so I though I'd post a review.

    1. Griots fine hand polish- This is by far the best wax/polish I've ever used. It's really easy to use and really gets rid of swirls and fine scratches. Definitely 5/5.

    2. Griots Vinyl and rubber dressing- This is supposed to be a safe rubber dressing fro dashes, tires etc, basically anything rubber plastic or vinyl. The nice thing about is that you can "adjust" how much shine you want. If you want it to be real shiny you let it dry. If you don't want it to be shiny you wipe it off right away. Either way it still provide uv proctection etc. it is safe for all plastics and contains no petroleum distillates (sp?). The only rel downside to it is it smells like cream cheese but the semll quickly disipates. Overall I think its pretty good but I haven't tried a whole lot of dressings. I give it a 4/5.

    3. Griots Claybar- nothing to special here just your basic clay. The good part is that you get alot of clay for $20 and it seemed to glide a little smoother than other clays.

    I've used the NXT wax. It removes scratches/swirls better.

    I used both the griots and the nxt wax together.

    The griots polish has a heavier abrasive its not something you'd want to use very often maybe a once or twice a years type of thing.

    Did your brand new Z really need that much work?

    Unfortunately it did. It had been sitting on the lot for about 5 months so it was pretty messy.
