    Holy crap, after reading the beginners, (first timer's) use of this product, I have to say that I actually have a "headache", all I want to do is just wax my bike, w/o all the other prep that goes with it..

    I usually always give my trike a good complete wax job, everytime, we have an all day rain storm...In my garage I go, my roll away sitting stool, is waiting for me, a can of wax and polishing cloth in my hand, headset on my ears, "get a good buzz on" and wax away, with Led Zeppelin blasting away in my ears............let it rain!

(just trying to keep rust off my chrome) How hard will it be to clean up after, leaving wax on for maybe 4 or 5 months??

    Anybody try this method, and how did it work??

    I waxed the chrome wheels (did not wipe off) on a very nice BSA years ago to protect it over the winter. Ruined the wheels. I didn't realize that wax absorbs water if left laying on a surface without polishing. Rusted the chrome all to hell.

    Looks like there's a couple different Zaino's out there, which one are you using and where do you get it?

    Zaino sounds like a ceramic sealer ... but I couldn't find anywhere that I saw that says that ... Kevin was talking about these awhile ago ... lot of work ... but looks like the results are awesome.

    Chrome may have changed over the years, but in the mists of time past (late 60's early 70's) I was told by an uncle that worked in a chrome shop not to apply auto wax chrome. He said chrome is actually somewhat porous, wax will trap moisture under the coating. Eventually rust will form and the plating will flake.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, interesting "thought" here, So now if wax is not the correct "stuff" to use any more, then what's the best stuff, for us conscious, folks that loves a nice clean shiny, no rust vehicle(s)?????????
