: Can Zaino sit overnight?

Need to get a couple coats of zaino on before winter, but dont have all day to work on the car. Can I put on a coat in the evening, let the car sit in the garage overnight, then wipe off the zaino in the morning? I'm in MI where its about 60 during the day, down into the 50's at night... thanks

Yes, but it will be much harder to remove.

The new stuff dries very quickly; if you put on really thin coats it should dry in no more than an hour, even in 50-60 degree weather. That should allow you to do at least one coat in the evening.

If it's a real pain to buff the next day, put a little distilled H2O in a mist bottle and spritz a fine mist. Buff and repeat.
You might substitute a little Z8 instead of the distilled water.
There are many sources of mist bottles: Kitchen supply shops or even auto supply stores. Get a small bottle of air freshener in a misting bottle and chuck the air freshener.
I keep one filled with distilled water on my detailing cart.
