i got this stuff last year.

i first applied the HD-Cleanse (pre-wax cleaner) to the hole car.which takes out all the swirles and scratches,plus sets the paint up ready for the wax.

then i applied the Japon Wax .cuz my teg is a japanese import i had to get the japon stuff(hence the name),which small loooovly.

doing both of these took me all day(8 hours i think).i do the wax about twice a year.heres how it turned out after the first application.



:)
this is the BEST wax i have ever used.when it rain's the water beades off very fast.its amazing to watch when driving.

i am never going to use polish on my car again. :shooting:

ps.if the pics are too small then i'll get bigger ones

I don't see any pics. :(

I bought a jar of that stuff and I found it was impossible to work with. I don't know, the wax just never came to a haze so it was impossible to buff out. :dontknow: I might try it again during the summer, but chances are I'll be using Meguiar's NXT...if I can find some! :)

Personally:
I hate Zymol.

Anyone who markets a waxed based on the country that your car is manufactured in... gah... it's retarded.

Creme & Carbon = Okay, light and dark cars. That makes sense
Japon, Volvo, Saab = What the hell? So Volvo and Saab are special... and all Jap cars have the same paint?

Then you got Z3, Jaguar, and NSX glazes...

And then you got Concours, Destiny, Atlantique and Vintage, which cost hundreds of dollars a jar... it's marketing madness I tell you... MADNESS!!! :laughing:

each to there own there mate :dontknow:

believe me ive tried loads and loads of diffarent waxes,polishes etc etc.

this stuff is IMO the best ive used.its just getting used to how to use it(dont let it go hazzy)thats when it becomes a sod to work with.

surley a wax that stays on the paintwork for a long long time is worlth the money.and by seeing the end resolt is even more worlth it.

i know where your coming from about how much it cost.pay for what you get i spose(you dont go to your local shop and buy something really cheep,aiming for the same resolts now do you)

While I really don't dig any zymol waxes, if I believe that if it works for then use it.

I bet if I put meguiars #26 or s100 right beside your zymol, nobody could tell the difference. Though all last step products have minute differences in the final appearance of the paint, PREP is what really determines 95% of the overall look. Just my .02

Car looks nice, I wish the pics were a little bigger.

I find that that particular product is a greasy mess to work with, and I've never had it reach a point where it's hazed. It just kind of sat there and was impossible to remove due to the greasy factor. Maybe it's b/c I was waxing on a super hot day and in direct sunlight. :laughing: Still, I had no problem finishing up the car with Gold Class, so not sure.

I can, however, speak highly for Zymol cleaner wax, that stuff is awesome. Easy to use, easy to remove...superior shine. :thumbsup:
