Yeah, you guys were right. You can never get that depth look from a silver car. I was able to get it to have as much acrylic coating look to it as possible.<P>Now, some of you were saying it is possible to apply a layer of wax on top of this and still manage to have them bond to these polymer sealant. Is it really possible for the Zaino's, too? I just don't want to spend another $20 or so to buy wax and find out they won't bond with Zaino.<P>Thank you all for the tips and help~!<P>

The wax will go over the Zaino and bond fine. Some have not been happy with the results though but maybe you will like it, try it and see. If your'e not happy you can do a dawn wash to strip the wax and then go back to Zainoing. Make sure you don't use a cleaner wax or anything that has abbraisives in it.

Make sure you use a pure paste carnuba wax or glaze as in the Zymol glazes. Wax in a bottle usually has a lot of petroluem oils in it to soften the wax. Use a natural wax, they look better. I cant believe anyone wouldnt like the look of a good carnuba wax, especially over Zaino, but who knows. Its possibel they didnt apply it right, use the right kind of wax, or just dont like the look and depth of a carnuba wax.
