botlbobjr is an unknown quantity at this point

I would like information on where to get products for this job. Also so ther is no confussion on whati want to do her it is:

Reason = I have minor scratches and swirls as well as minor overspray

1) I want to strip entire car to bare

2) Once bare i would like to polish and deoxidize the surface

3) Once step 2 is done and over spray is gone i would like to glaze he finish for lasting qualities

4) Last I would like to start applying Zaino because i have heard from numerous people it is the best in protecting and looks and lasts longest

I appreciate any help w/ this then once i do it i can write a diy

Look for something called "rubbing compound" if you have some overspray.

A good clay bar will get rid of overspray as well.

I am huge Zaino fan myself. I have seen how amazing it makes a car look, mine included.

I know the zaino site has some good tips on using their products but if yu do a look, I am sure you can find more info on how to go the strip down and such too.

Washing with dishsoap helps some because it removes old wax and such. Thats all I know.

I have Zaino on my car and its pretty good. The paint swirls are starting to come back, but the water still beads when i wash my car.

Note: Zaino'd my car like 3 months ago.
