Default Wife says I'm crazy so figured I would ask you guys

Well I was detailing my Z today and after I zainoed the outside I opened the hatch,doors, and hood and did the door jams and the inside of the doors and my underhood. She said I was crazy to wax all that. How many of you guys clean your cars like this????? Just a friendly wager I have with the wifey so wanted some other owners inputs.

^ since the door jams are rarely exposed to UV light or outside conditions, i think its a waste of time but whatever helps you sleep at night . I just always make sure to chamois the jams after I wash my cars and that seems to keep them looking good.

Same here......

I said to my wife when she laughed at me polishing those areas,
"if only i could Zaino you, it might keep you looking brand new also".

She reckons the Z is worse than another woman..... at least she can compete against other women, can't compete against the Z.

I just did the door jams yesterday with a spritz of Z6. I keep all the plastics underhood detailed with 303 Aerospace protectant. The painted areas underhood get a ZCS/Clear Sealant treatment.

You are not alone

I haven't been that detailed, but you've given me some ideas of places to look at when I clean the car now. Thanks

If that helps you enjoy your hobby, then more power to you.

Personally, I never had that kind of free time.

I do it. it keeps down water spots, protects and helps hide scuffs from getting in and out of the car. its not crazy. it makes a difference . it just takes more effort than some people are willing to put out.

Go to the zainostore on line or just google Zaino Brothers and you will see their line of products. I have tried everything and really like their products. The Z6 is basically a quick spray detailer I use between full details. The Clear Sealant is applied and requires no buffing. Just apply it and let it cure. I follow it up with their Z8 Grand Finale which is like a spray detailer that adds to the shine and durability. Aerospace 303 protectant is great for underhood plastics, wheel wells, tires and interior dash and door panels. Gives a nice matte finish that isn't greasy. Available at most boat stores. Autogeek, a forum sponsor, also sells it.

For the record: Waxing and driving is not mutually exclusive. I love to drive but I like them to look nice too

It's called "perfectionism". Can be good, can be bad. Hell, I dust off the wheels and use my car duster
after each drive...geeezzz. But then again, mine's black so there's no other option.

Dude, don't take anything auto related seriously from a woman dude.

Love them but let's be real, they treat a car like a computer; just turn them on, use them and shut them off and act surprised as **** if anything bad happens between those 3 actions they do.

Use compressed air to avoid micro-marring. You are probably doing damage.
