I don't work in the summer at a regular job, so I find I wash it a lot - after rains, and with after a few bug hits. It probably doesn't take more than 45 minutes.

Just washed mine earlier after parked next to the curb at work and some bonehead mowed the grass and got it all over my car. After 5 coats of Zaino, I usually don't have to wash my car that often. Unless, it's really dirty. Usually, All I have to do is wipe those bugs off with a towel or use a little Z-6 and anything will come off. Two times I drove it through the rain and it was like I had free car washes.

Tomorrow is Re: Zaino day. If I get my butt to bed, maybe I can get several coats on, but i doubt I can get 6 on in one day. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

I have a 1992 FZR 1000 BTW. I haven't driven it much this summer, but I may have to, to catch up with the number of coats of Zaino that you have. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

Good question...I wash mine about once a week, but will wash it before every show or event I drive to!

I seem to be washing mine all the freakin' time. It's amazing how much grime and stuff gets on the car just from driving it, and I feel compelled to keep it clean to appease the car's fans, which are still numerous.

Did DanA mention that he has about 20 coats of Zaino on his red docket! Last time I saw it, I couldn't find a speck of dust on it! I swear he keeps it on a plastic white room somewhere!

Usually, about once a week, I go outside with my bathing suit on and my bucket of water with soap. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

I stand in the garage for a few minutes and marvel at the beauty that lies before me.

I then start washing it, meticulously going over the problem areas.

But, before I start to dry it, I notice that all of neighbors are standing their, just staring at me. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_confused.gif

Suddenly, I notice that my Z06 isn't there. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif
It's still on order.

Damn this wait is killing me.

Oh well, anyways, this straight-jacket makes typing awfully difficult. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_confused.gif

Well, I just washed it again which consisted of cleaning the tar off of the wheel wells, fenders, and quater panels with WD 40, then Zaino Car Wash, then dried car completely NO WATER SPOTS, then Z-6ed the whole freakin' car, then Z-2ed the car, then wiped that off, and then finished it all off with GM Window cleaner inside and out. All the while I was supposed to be working. During the wash I had an employee keeping the car wet while I took "important" phone calls so it wouldnt get any freakin' water spots. No one told me about all this before I bought the Z06.

And Carl if you're reading this, it's all your freakin' fault. By the way I need more Zaino Car Wash.

Oh did I forget to mention, the car looks unbelievably beautiful. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif
