Best Wax for the Winter?


Recommended Posts

Hy guys,

A lot have been said about wax, but nothing has been mentioned about their winter capabilities...

Since I am driving my 986 this winter for the first time (I already changed the tires!), I would like to know which wax would offer the better balance between ease of application/weather protection...

Thanks,

Gustavo.

Here is another vote for Zaino products. Great company and Sal Zaino is very helpful and a class guy! The Z2 and Z5 I use the most.

I also use RejeX wax on leading edges (mirrors and front bumper) and on the wheels and wheel barrels.

Sent these guys an email. They don't deliver in NJ...

I am thinking about these 2 products to start (my car is black):

Z-AIO All-in-one 1 $26.95 $26.95

Z-3 Show Car Polish for Regular Paint 1 $14.95 $14.95

Let me know what you think.

Thanks,

Gus

Here is what I would recommend if you have never really detailed your car. Get the Zaino Total Protection Show Car Kit (ZKIT-1)

1. wash car with grease cutting soap (Dawn)

2. Clay car

3. wash with Z-7

4. wipe down with Z-6

5. Z-5Pro w/ZFX (you may use Z-AIO here instead)

6. wipe down with Z-6

7. Z-2Pro w/ZFX (2 coats)

8. Finish with ZX-8

This is a lot of work, buy it pays off in the long run. I washed my car twice this year. Bugs and other stuff just come right off. Lasts for 6 months at least.

If you aren't into doing a real detail...wash the car, Z-AIO, Z-2Pro.

Gus, why won't they deliver to NJ? Strange.

You don't want Z3. You have a clear coat.

Thanks for the tip Withe987s,

I will get the Z2pro...

Regarding the delivery...I found it strange as well...This is the message on the website:
