Used Zaino products on my Bimmer with great result -- ZAIO, Z2 Pro, Z-CS and Z8. Wondered if anyone had used Zaino products on their boat's gelcoat.

I've only ever used Klasse or Meguiar's Boat products on gel coats.

Are you sure your BMW has a gel coat and not a urathane clear coat?

He takling about Gel Coat I think. You can try it, just try a very very small area first.

After using Zaino AIO, Z-2 pro and Zaino Clear seal on my Bimmer and my 911, I decided to try Zaino on my boat's gelcoat.

I first washed the hull with Chemical Guys Citrus and for that part of the hull that had petroleum reidue, I used RejeX cleaner.

After drying, I applied Z-AIO, then the Z-CS. I allowed the clear seal to cure for about 2 hours and the applied Z-6 the gloss enhancer.

The results were spectacular!!! Super shine and gloss...

No, I am not a Zaino salesman...but a detailing novice that has been given great advice by the many pros on Bimmerfest. I will keep everyone posted on how well it holds up.

Now that I am addicted to detailing, I told the misses that the frig and her new washing machine and dryer were next. Only kidding...

Hey congrats. I've read that the Z-AIO is more aggressive than the K-AIO (Klasse). I've never used any AIO before, and have a small bottle on the way. I also don't know what other brands of AIO there are.

As for the fridge, careful what you tell her . . . because this thread is on page 1 here! :eeps:

You can't go wrong with either Klasse or Zaino. They both are very similar IMO.

Thus far, the Z-CS and the Z-6 are holding upend working just great.

Spider droppings and bird crap wipe off easily with no residual marks.

When I used petroleum based wax products in the past, I had a very hard time removing the droppings and the residue.

So far, so good.

As reports from past members has indicated, the Z products have super durability. My 335ix still looks like it was detailed yesterday instead of three months ago. I believe that i will be able to say the same thing about my boat's gelcoat at the end of the season.
