Has anyone used this Z-CS Clear Seal? It's a new product from Zaino. What were your results if so? Thanks!
Z-CS has been around since 2007 IIRC.Has anyone used this Z-CS Clear Seal? It's a new product from Zaino. What were your results if so? Thanks!
I tend to spend a little too much time on the detailing sites/forums and have a habit off buying things to try (although Im getting better).Thanks Kean. I know you know you're stuff. I honestly thought Z-CS was new. I'm going to try it and hopefully I can give it a good review.
I can’t speak for ZCS but with Optimum OS (essentially the same in the basic regard of it being a WOWA product), I have found it very versatile. I still use it to apply to all types of trim, wheels, etc. I even got to a point where I started experimenting with application via airbrush (an idea I got from a fellow member on Autopia.org a while back). It actually works really well this way for me although I do waste more product than I would applying via a foam pad. However, it really helps speed up application on wheels or other components with more complex surfaces, crevices, etc. when I need to.I have use Zaino Clear seal since it came out. Very easy to use and leaves a good shine with good durability. It works well on dark black plastic also.
I used this product over the weekend and yes I used a little to much in a couple of spots! But the shine is awesome. My challenger is black and it really makes the crystal in the paint jump out at you. I'm planning on doing a second coat this coming weekend as well. I'm pleased with this product. It is easy to apply and I had minimal buffing to do after in the areas where I went a little heavy with the product. I do think I will need to treat the plastics before I apply the second coat however. They just didn't get the black I was looking for on these pieces.
I waited 24 hours before I looked at the car and saw some high spots. I read on the website that the high spots can be wiped down so I did it and it all came out well.
I have used a couple of products on the trim pieces but they never seem to last very long. Amazingly enough I used freedom waterless cleaner on the trim pieces a few weeks back and it made the plastics look great and it lasted longer than say a Mothers back to black type product did. I'll probably hit the trim pieces with that before I do the z-cs again. I'd love to hear more about what you're doing with the trim pieces however!
