Local Zaino Distributor ?

Anyone know where I can get some Zaino? Hoping to shine up the new toy this weekend... I know online is the best place to get it now, but I was hoping to score some by the weekend.

i put zaino on the Z, and the next weekend put tropicare on the acura. a few months later, you can really tell the difference. the zaino looks better and beads up a helluva lot better. it helps the vette stays garaged and covered most of the time.

Steve now owns/sells Tropicare, a product he developed, so he is not a Zaino rep anymore...

We use his tropicare and find it much easier to use than the Zaino. We used the Zanio for 2 + years before going to the tropicare products. I don't see the difference except for the easy application and wipe off of the tropicare. However I use plain ol Turtle wax on my every day driver cars. I think the Zaino and Tropicare are more for show cars because it leaves a oily like finish that you cant put your hands on without leaving finger prints. Just my opinion.

Bobby Archer Motorsports in Fort Worth used to have some a few years ago, no telling if they have it now, it's the only public place I've seen it for sale.

I have the answer, in west fort worth there is a LineX coating place off of highway 580. Its just west of 183 before you get to 820. Nice guy owns the shop and carries all zaino products for the same prices as Zaino's website.

I think its LineX... anyways i'll try to find their phone number and post it up.

I used Zaino on my GN 5 years ago and loved it. I'd never seen soapy water bead up on a car when washing it.

When I bought my TTA, I thought I'd give Tropicare a try. It's a little cheaper and easier to get, so I thought why not. Its alot easier to use, and the end product feels and looks the same.

But what I've found in the year I'd been using Tropicare is that if you wash your car more than once between use, it stops beading up. When I used Zaino, I used it once with many coats and it beaded up every time I washed it for the following year until the cars untimely doom.

So while I feel that tropicare is easier to use, it seems like you have to use it more often than you do with Zaino. And most of the "trouble" applying Zaino is the first time you use it. Once you get over that, it's a piece of cake.

It's on the south side of road at the west end of the strip. I think a dry cleaner is up front by the road and it's close to the cleaners.
