It all depends on whether you are using a wax or a polish. According to Zaino www.zainobros.com you only have to wait about a month before polishing your car. Their polish has no abrasives. I would highly suggest this polish the more coats you put on your car the more glasslike the finish becomes. The polish is optically perfect according to the manufacturer. Check them out.
JayP, I have 3 Stangs in my driveway. My daughter has the black one. That is just the nature of black paint. We keep the car well waxed and have special (used for no other purpose) 100% cotton towels for drying. No matter how careful we are the scratches in the clear coat show. Bottom line...no more black cars for us.
I have a lot of those hair line scratches. How do they get there? They dont seem deep , but when i run my fingernail down them, you feel that they are a little deep, not past the paint though. If i just put some zymol wax will it get rid of them?

I am also interested in expert opinions on waxing. Do you use paste wax?? I know it's harder/more time consuming to put on, but doesn't it also protect better? What about the plastic bumpers? I never had a car that I cared about as much as my Bullitt (Windstar gets the wax at the touchless car wash, nothing more) so I'd appreciate some pointers.
I will be applying the second coat of Zaino to my Bullitt this weekend. Sometime we should meet up somewhere to admire each others cars since we're close by. SE WI Bullitt gathering or something.
Anyway, we did the full Zaino treatment on my girlfriend's blue Escort ZX2 (as a trial before doing it to the Bullitt!!) and the results just blew me away. I did one coat to the Bullitt, but it was during that real humid time we had, and humidity is a killer for Zaino... I don't think it dried all the way. Hoping for more impressive results with the redo this weekend.
Zaino is different from all other waxes / polishes as far as I can tell. I ordered over $100 worth of goodies from them and have been impressed with everything so far.
