*Polish & Waxing*

Never really thought about it and kinda thought they may be one in the same. Boy was I wrong. I read up on what the difference was so thought I would give it a try. I cleaned my truck and used Meguiar's Ultimate Liquid Polish first. I followed this up with Ultimate Liquid Wax. What a difference. The Polish seem to take out some of the small imperfections and made the paint feel a little smoother. Don't know how often I'll do this because at 66 It took me most of the day and I was spent after I finished this process. My 49 Chevy looks better than it ever has.

Wow that looks great. Polish is a paint correction step. Wax is a protectant. Now if you really want to see how smooth your paint can get. Use a clay bar, when washing your vehicle, and then polish. Your paint will be slicker than snot!

Thanks for the comment. I looked at the clay bar but I never wash my truck.

I watched a video on using a clay bar. Doesn't really require washing the vehicle just spray the area with a detailer spray and use the clay bar. May check into this in the near future.

That is correct, the surface just needs to be wet. I detail cars, so I just found it easier to clay bar during that time. I would wash an area, rinse, and then soap that same area and use the clay bar. I would continue that process until the whole vehicle is done. Then polish & wax.
When I do my truck, I just use the detailer spray with the clay bar. I don’t actually “wash” my truck either.

I've been using Zaino polishes and products for years on all of my vehicles. Lasts longer than waxes and always comes out awesome.

For the clay bar, I just mix a little zaino wash with water in a spray bottle. Good lubricant and much cheaper than detailing spray.

I used Zanio too, excellent stuff. It was great when I was just using it for my vehicles. But once I started detailing, it was too expensive when I had to buy a lot of it. I now use Griot's. Excellent products also. But they do offer this in Gallon refills, which I needed with the detailing.

I also have been using Zaino products for over 10 years now the Z5 and Z2 systems last a very long time.
