alee: zaino ws reformulated. you need to throw away the old stuff.....

and strip it off of your car and restore your 20+ layers with the new stuff.

j/k about removing the old stuff and throwing away the bottles. anyway, I picked up over at autopia that zaino reformulated the recipe and didn't announce it. apparently you have the new formula if the bottle says "new" on the label.

I'm getting ready to wipe my slate clean anyway.

Figures... I'm switching to carnuba, and you're switching to polymer.

Haven't decided if I'm going to do the Zaino stripping, or if I'm hiring a pro to do it.

I may run a opiece of masking tape down the hood and do one side with zaino and the other with medallion. if I do, I'll hook up with a local E46-er to be my witness.

I probably missed the original post on .org, but what made you decide to give polymers a crack?

hehe... you said crack.

I haven't been posting on the org. in fact, try sending me an email: 31st330i@roadfly.com

anyway, it's been a long time in the works. I decided to try a polymer and then narowed it down to zaino. I'm hoping to be impressed but not counting on it.
