Default Dumb butt question of the day

Everyone says to use a "little" Zaino. I just received mine today and the question is:

what/how much is a little ?

Thanks in advance. Fire-retardent suit on.

I did mine by Dawn washing and drying. Then put a quarter size Z1 on applicator and rub in circles. When it is dry, use Z6 and spray aplicator pad and put three thin strips of Z2or Z5 on it. Rub the strips wiith your finger to distrubute it over the pad. Rub hood,roof and rear front to back and sides up and down. It will go on thin barely looking like it is on. Do not put it on like regular wax or it will take forever to dry. Just my .02.
You'll get better with additional applications. :cheers:

1/2 to 3/4 of an ounce will do an entire car.

I was told that if the level in the Z2 bottle drops by more than 1/4 of an inch after you have done the car, you are putting too much on. I've done five coats, and the level has dropped 1 1/4 inches. Perfect. :D :D

And the car? Awesome. Enjoy your "Z"!
