Hey guys, I'm a serious newb, but PLEEEASE help....

I just got my jet black 02 325i, and it's dirty because I'm scared of using wrong washing methods...

So this week I bought:

*Zaino: Z1, Z2, Z5, Z6, Z7, Z18
*California Water Blade
*Microfiber Wash Mitt

Can you guys please help me formulate a good process to wash my car, especially how to use the zaino...

PLEASE guys, i tried searching, but nothing was specific enough...


THANKS!

here's some threads that should help

they have some good discussion on Zaino. You also need to get a clay bar kit before you put a polymer on the car. Send a PM to Nat Brown, Ripsnort and in_d_haus. I was looking for threads on general washing techniques, but these guys know a lot and will know links to some good websites. SONET just Z'd his car and is in SoCal, but I think he's on vacation right now.

The only thing I change from the website in my Zaino "technique" is to use microfiber to buff off the Z2 and also to wipe off the Z6. The Meguiar's Ultimate Wipes are great for this. No lint and no scratches. I also use foam applicators (Viking brand with the "handle"). Alot of folks on autopia message board prefer those to get the Zaino spread thinner and more even.

Other than that everything the same--although I didn't bother with the clay but my car was new and felt smooth anyway so didn't feel like putting in the extra effort. If you've got an hour or two to spare though I say go for it.
