    "wax" for your ski

    OK, i've seen lots of info on this topic from Meguire's to zaino.

    There was this "wax" that Porshe apparently used on their cars. A German friend of my father's brought him some, and i got to use it on my dads car.

    The stuff was called "Hart Wax", black bottle straight from Germany. I could not read a thing and later in life i had a German friend translate for me...i think i still have the bottle somewhere in hopes to find it again. This stuff was friggin' flammable as hell, and thought it was gonna strip the paint!, but heck no. It hazed super fast and was the slickest product i have EVER seen. Talk about a glass shine. Nothing has ever compared to how long water beaded either.

    This has always left something to be desired and waxing anything has always been depressing for the last 20 years. I am on a mission to find it again now that the internet is much better.

    Meanwhile, i have always been a fan of 3M products and cracked their new scotchguard marine wax...it smelled a bit flammable, and texture is similar from what i remember with the Hart Wax, but does not seem as pungent. Anybody try it?

    In my quick search, i stumbled on this below. Anybody hear of it? I like the part about under hull and have heard good things about teflon waxes.

    I just realized that hart in german translates to hard. I'm screwed unless i can find the bottle!

    Trust me..

    Use a coat of Zaino Z-3, then Z-5, with a quick spray of Z-6 between coats.
    Repeat until your wife calls you nuts. Then, use Zaino C-S (Clear Seal) to finish.

    Wash with Z-7 and use Z-6 after you ride. It will always look new. My '05 Honda F-12X looks as good as my 2 week old 250.

    The best part is watching the water fly off while you are riding. Also, it's super easy to clean because nothing sticks.

    If i'm wrong I'll buy your Zaino back from you. TRUST ME.

    Ira is the best. He is as close as they come to a rocket scientist in detailing..

    Check out his notes and tips on detailing; they are the best you will find on the net. I use a CRSpotless water system on my cars and skis and it can't be beat. He can hook you up if you want one; a few $$$ but worth it. The most important point is to never dry your paint with towels; use a battery powered leaf blower (cheap is fine). Once you have Z'd your ride, the water comes flying off.

    Sweet...that is an LA area code and I work in LA. Is it a store and do they sell to walk ins? I will definitely hit that place up this week if they do!

    No; he works out of his home; Zaino is nuts about not blowing their stuff out all over the place; they usually cater to show car collectors / professionals only. He's in Santa Monica, right near Bundy & Ocean Park. Just call him..
