Well, I have the day off and I had full intentions of giving the Blue Brick a FULL detail today. But, my dad called and wanted to know if I wanted to go see Grienke pitch, so I dumped the full detail idea. But, since I was motivated and in the detail mood, I decided to put a quick coat of Zaino AIO on it, then a layer of Z8 and call it good. Came out pretty good considering from the time I plugged in the 7424 until I put it back in the box and on the shelf was exactly one hour!! Here you go.<p><IMG SRC="http://i378.photobucket.com/albums/oo224/Husker_Zack/IMG_2480.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i378.photobucket.com/albums/oo224/Husker_Zack/IMG_2482.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i378.photobucket.com/albums/oo224/Husker_Zack/IMG_2485.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i378.photobucket.com/albums/oo224/Husker_Zack/IMG_2486.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i378.photobucket.com/albums/oo224/Husker_Zack/IMG_2488.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i378.photobucket.com/albums/oo224/Husker_Zack/IMG_2489.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i378.photobucket.com/albums/oo224/Husker_Zack/IMG_2490.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i378.photobucket.com/albums/oo224/Husker_Zack/IMG_2491.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Had a couple of older ladies walk by and say, "Holy cow, that's a shiny and BLUE Volvo!"

Well, I ordered another one from myswedishparts.com and it came in clear and I needed fluted, so I went ahead and ordered another one, because I liked the clear. I have both fogs in now, but I'm waiting on my HID's from sharphid.com to put everything back together. <p>Yeah, Scott, I love not having the front plate, I just wish the person before me didn't have to. Oh well, the bumper plugs work great and match perfect.

I've been hooked on Zaino for 8-9 years now and it's my favorite product. I use Griots carnuba on my '08 Malibu and my wife's '07 Liberty. The Griots carnuba seems to be a bit deeper and less silvery, but not anywhere near as reflective.

Zaino is not the easiest product to use, but once you figure out that less is more, even to the extreme, it's awesome and you won't find a deeper gloss out there. I have all my stuff lined up to do my full detail from clay bar on up to 4-5 coats of Z2, but I just need to find that time.

<br>Hey Zack, the Blue Brick is looking pretty good - need to hang a FMIC and retain that ~20 hp over the summer.

Damn kids and daycare just deplete my finances constantly! <p>Steve, Greinke was not his usual dominant self yesterday that we've been accustomed to. He still went 6 innings and struck out 7, walked 1 and left with a 3-2 lead, but he wasn't near as sharp as normal. He wasn't yanked because he was in trouble, he was yanked due to pitch count. The Indians did a good job of working him and going deep into the count.<p>The Brett rant was actually earlier in the week and he went off on the local media for being hard on Hillman a few times this year. It was a riot man, Brett gets a free pass in this town. Any other local athlete goes on TV drunk and goes off on a profanity laced tirade, people would be all up in arms. Not Brett, everyone just agrees with him and laughs it off. <p>You want a funny clip of Brett, go here.<p><A HREF="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUdHMkE5Qdk" TARGET="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUdHMkE5Qdk</A>

Had never heard of Zaino, will have to look into it. Are there any Meguiars products that others have used that give similar results? These I can buy at my local auto parts store.

That sonic is way too clean, take it to the racetrack and get some debris chips and scratches in it like mine! Haha.

It is the exact same formula carnuba as P21S. Very easy to work with, great wet shine. However, with such a high carnuba content, it will cover for only about a month. The upside is, if your finish is prepared, it's easy on and off, 30 minutes for the car.<p>The Zaino is great stuff, especially if you have the 3-4 hours to wash, clay, wash, polish, seal x2 (with the accelerator). Doing so will give you an assured 5 months of water beading and easy wash. It's about a $100 buy in for the essential stuff. Skip the car wash; you can do the same thing with the Meguiar's Gold gallon available at Target for $5.
