I am hoping our resident Zaino experts will jump into this.

My car was in an accident and I had two body panels replaced. I was told not to wax them because the paint needed 2 months to cure. So I washed the car in Dawn and applied a coat of Z-1, 2, and 5 to the factory painted panels but I didn't do the clay bar treatment to any of the car, because I knew I would want to redo the whole car after the paint cured. Well that day has arrived.

What do I do to get a fresh even Zaino treatment for the whole car?

I would start from scratch with the panels that were repainted, and bring them up to the level of Zaino I had on the rest of the car. Carl may be able to shed more light on this subject.
NOTE: This will work as long as they did not do any blending on to other panels to get a color match. If blending was done you will need to do these panels as well.

I would Dawn wash the car, Dawn will not remove Zaino and will only help with the panels that were repaired. You can clay the whole car, then Z-1 and Z-2/Z-5 which ever flavor you use, clay will not remove the Zaino, it may remove a little but not enough to worry about. I would then over the next week or two add a few extra coats to the panels that were repaired, that should get the car looking the same gloss wise. You did not have to wait to apply Zaino after repainting, unlike wax Zaino is "friendly" to new paint and still allows it to cure. If you have any questions please contact me and I will be happy to help you. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif
