Where to buy Zaino

Any place to buy Zaino besides online. Specifically in Phoenix, AZ area...Scottsdale would be great.

What are all the different things I need to buy to protect this car from the blazing sun.

Also what protection/cleaning stuff does everyone use on the interior of their vehicles.

The only place I've found to obtain Zaino is http://www.zainostore.com/ and similar on-line venues. You could call Zaino Bros. and ask if they have any distributors in your area.

When you do get the products, I came across some more helpful Zaino application tips recently which you might want to read.

I've got a '01 with the original two coats of Zaino still on it and doing great after 11K miles (but with no bad weather or winters); I'm just now thinking about putting on some more coats. The stuff is unbelievable...

Thanks.

Not yet. Up to now, all I've needed/used were the zaino applicators and the SalZ-recommended "large cotton made-in-America white bath towels" for polish-off and doing the detailing spray.

I plan to try out the idea of using microfiber as applicator this weekend.

BTW, MarkM here (see this post) is the Zaino king IMHO - his Black 996TT has ~18 coats of Zaino on it. He may have some tips and tricks about different applicators, etc. The car looked simply amazing in person!
