Zaino doesn't mix well with Zymol

Well I just spent 6+ hours detailing the car,I'm damn tired. It should have only been 3-4 MAX but I learned a lesson the hard way. Zymol doesn't mix well at all with Zaino. It went like this

-Wash w/ Simple Green

-Clay bar

-1 layer of Zymol

-1 layer of Zaino

Applying the Zaino over the Zymol was a pain in the a55. It made the Zaino hard to remove,even when I applied tiny amounts. The Zaino would kinda of smeer when I went to buff it off. It turned out well in the end but much more work then it had to be.

I did all this hard work just to take the out in windy weather as soon as I finished. I was leaving this restaurant and this new Eclipse pulled up next to me and revved it engine.....wow........ it sounds like a goped.

I'll try to take better pics soon,these are just a preview

I'm relatively new at this kind of thing, but wouldn't you put the Zymol on top of the Zaino rather than the other way around?

Could be the issue.

Z-2 from Zaino SUCKS as a scratch filler so I used Zymol first which really does a better job at filling scratches.

Z-2 is a great product -- but Zaino does not market it to fill/hide scratches.

I used Zaino Z-PC on a random orbit buffer to remove scratches on my Basalt Black. Z-PC is a light polish which is intended for scratch removal.

Z-5 is a better "scratch hider" than Z-2. Consider trying a few coats of Z-5 before using Z-2. Z-2 is designed to be optically superior, but it does not have hiding properties. I used this approach, and I was very impressed by the results.
