Question Zaino Sequencing - Alfa Giulietta QV

Folks,

I'm in the process of buying a new Alfa Romeo Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde in Ghiaccio White.
With the car being Brand new I want to spend a full day or two cleaning it properly (I will take before and afters once done).

Prior to the car delivery I have bought Zaino Products: ZAIO, Z2, Z6 & Z8 for the body panels.
(I will use FK1000P for the Black 5 Hole Alloys and FK108AS for Tires).

With those Zaino products I was thinking of following this sequence (once the car has been cleaned/dried properly): 1 coat ZAIO, 3 coats Z2, 1 Coat of Z6
then 2 Coats of Z8?

Would you do it this way? or have I missed something?

Thanks,
Mike

What are the time scales for the multiple coats of Z2?
If doing multiple coats of Z2 within 24hrs Zaino recommend using the ZFX kit, this aids/accelerates the cure time and allows multiple coats. Without it I think they suggest 12/24hr cure time.
After using ZAIO ... Using the Z2 with ZFX put on a coat, wait 20mins then buff off, then put a coat of Z6 on and buff off. Repeat this a total of 3 time then finish with an extra coat of Z8

I have the ZFX but I have never used it before.
I was going to wait a few hours between coats.

If you have ZFX then use it, just put in 2 oz or half a tube full of Z2 apply 5 drops of ZFX (blue) mixture into the tube of Z2 shake well for 90sec then you can apply a thin coat to each panel, but to get the best out of Zaino your paint has to be free of all contamination and swirls.

Yes as above, the ZFX is very easy to use.
