Default This is how much ZCS to use

I taped and marked this bottle since new.
Lousy pic but you should be able to get the idea.
You can see the first two marks when I used way too much, but since then there is barely room for a mark between uses.
This bottle has been used on a Vette, Maxima, Accord, and two ext cab Silverados.
I always apply indoors, and I apply directly to a dedicated ZCS pad.
This works for me.

There was a bit of a learning curve for me on ZCS but once I got the hang of it, I love it. Topped off with Z8 it's great. Less is definitely better. I have two bottles and they may be around for a while.

I meant to say that the last two marks indicate coats on my 09 ext cab Silverado. That's how little you need.
I also washed my Wifes Accord two weeks ago when we had a warm day as cold weather was in the long term future and I figured it would stay relatively clean for a while. I ended up giving it a thorough wash, one coat of Z2, and one coat of ZCS. This car was fully detailed back in May when new and after this application it looks perfect again. The durability of Z products is fantastic.

Default Zcs

I have a bottle that is 3 years old, It has about 1/3 of product left. I use it a mimimum of 8-12 times per year. My Vette, SSR, SUV and the daily driver. Apply it a thin as you can. The results are awesome.
