The Shiniest Intrepid in PA.


















This is my 1998 Dodge Intrepid ES. It has the 3.2L engine and most available options. I'd just like to claim that it's the single shiniest Intrepid in PA. A few cosmetic things I've done are, tinted windows, spoiler (non-factory, painted calipers, removed door logos, removed pinstripe. Most importantly, is the $80 and 10hrs I've spent Zaino'ing my car. I absolutely love the shine. Someday I'll take pics of it when it's clean. BTW, that spoiler is the one that alot of people here seem to like. Below is a link to a pic of what it looks like out the back window.

Also, here is a pic of the painted calipers that we've talked about before:

Zaino rules! Dont forget to do those wheels though. Whenever I get around to buying a dig cam or using the reg cam, I will post my Zaino'ed car also (just switched over from Meguairs).

If you are detailing freaks, (I tried to start a detailing thread, but oh well) come join me on this fourm.

More Zaino people with great tips.

That`s one wicked baad `trep! Love Zaino too! It`s worth every penny and effort. I think it`s the perfect finish for clearcoated cars. I will swear up and down that the finish is now better than new! So good in fact, that I can even see the irregularities in the sheet metal where the roof is attached to the C-pillars! Can it be too good? ;)

Thanks for the spoiler link.

Where can one get Zaino? I've never seen it, but I haven't looked too hard either.

Does the Zaino finish last a while?

warlord:
Zaino is directly ordered via the web--zainobros.com
That is, print out their order form, fill it out and mail it in. Sal Zaino will promptly reply to email inquiries and the stuff is shipped post-haste as soon as they get your check/mo (maybe they do plastic now? it's been so long since I last ordered some -- if that gives you some idea about this product!!)

The stuff lasts and lasts. It appears to really bond with the original clearcoat finish much better than an ordinary wax. You may achieve similar levels of shine with a wax but not nearly the longevity. Afterall, wax is merely a thick coat of oil that will simply evaporate off of a surface especially when exposed to sun and detergents. Get thee to zainobros.com (as they say in the Quaker State).
