There is a vendor in town selling a product called Ezdetailer....it's basically car wax in a aerosol can. I didn't want to try it until after doing some homework but I can't seem to find an actual review online. Anyone here use the stuff?

I wouldn't waste the money, just get some Meguiars, and a wheel, and go to town.

Lots of stuff online . google it. First google page I pulled these

You have these ...
I would think that would cause a lot more damage than it would do good. With this product you would basically be grinding the dirt into your paint which will cause scratching and marring of the paint.
Try it. Hated it. I ended up with fine surface scratches in the clear coat.
Then you have the one's that can't spell ...
my nephew gave me a can of ezdetailer to try. i sprayed it on. alloud it to sit for a minute. wiped it off. it took off the dirt nicely without any abrasive damage to the finish. it hazed up 5 minutes after that then buffed it out with a microfiber rag. it was fabulous. it polished the windows like rain x. it polished my wheels. the whole car took me 15 minutes to wash and wax. i used it on my 66 caddy convertible. that was the first time i washed it for the spring season. it was pretty dirty. i havent let a drop of water touch the car since i restored it 3 years ago. i liked the stuff so much i went out and ordered 2 cases of it. theirs only 1 place to order it on the net, its not cheep ( $ 10.00 per can does 3 cars ) but its the best. the shine is going on 4 weeks now and still looks great .
I wouldn't use spray can on my truck for a final finish, let alone use it without pre-washing.

Give it a try on someone else's car and let us know how it works.

... But honey it was only $$$

Right now I use the Meguiars and love it....as far as this Ezdetailer goes I would never use it without prewashing anyway.
Hey Kookboy, I found those write-ups you posted in my initial google search but that was all. Seems a product like this would be heavily reviewed since it looks like one of those products Billy Mays sells on TV

If you are serious. Get zaino, but be prepared to have your wallet yanked out

Great stuff once you have a good base ie..clay bar first.

im using Mothers Carnauba Cleaner Wax. freakin awsome stuff!!!

after i wash my truck, i go at it with this stuff. it actually takes oxidation and rust stains out of the paint i thought i would never get, and leaves behind a nice tough wax coating.

Mothers all the way!

i have nver actually heard of the clay bars till you guys mentioend it, so i just ran a google and sounds like just the stuff i need. i'll go an pick some up.

you will be amazed at what the clay bar will pick up. there is no other way i know of to get the dirt out of the paint.

it takes a bit of work but the results are impressive.

mothers makes good stuff.

Zano is by far the best there is out there and I tried them all after owning a black sports car. Its allot of $ and it takes forever to apply (make a day out of it) but the shine lasts a long time and its well worth it on black. Always use a clay bar no matter what before waxing. They sell that too. You will be very amazed how your paint will become a mirror. Its not a wax. Its a polymer that will build.

i may give that a go next, but for now i'm well stocked on Mothers, lol.

i have a white pickup...my first white vehicle, and every spec fo dirt shows. but when that thing is all polished up and clean, man does she look good.

but i have noticed while getting close and personal waxing it by hand, that there are tiny specs of rust/oxidation scattered along the sides of the truck. the Mothers cleaning wax helped get rid of the majority of it with some elbow grease, but maybe this clay bar stuff will finish it off.

its only noticable if your right up against the truck though.

I second that!! It really is good stuff. I just wish it would dry faster. It takes like 4 hours to dry - and that's using the optional accelerator.

Really with the accelerator (in a dry environment) it usually dries in 20 mins... Are you sure your not putting too heavy of a coat on?

Pretty much - it might have been just a little less.

I was doing it in my garage in the Winter... so I am sure that had something to do with it... and it was a pretty heavy coat

On a hot dry day, it would be better. This stuff is not really a wax - and so that has something to do with it.

Yea Winter in a garage that would probably do it. It definetely needs to be warm when you apply Zaino.

i buy all of my car detailing equipment from a company called griot's garage. They are on the web and have excellent stuff

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

I've used their stuff before, and they are very Good.

Try Zaino though - their's is truly better. It shines better, and it lasts longer. With Zaino - you really only need to wax twice a year. The dirt literally washes of the car in a rain. I was amazed.

It is all the rage with car club detailing. That's how I learned of it.

just for the record a clay bar and wax are for 2 defferent things. I have use everything out there and some are better but the best bang for the "buck" would have to be Meguiars. Anything in a can wont last very long and would waist the money on it.
