You cannot upload photos directly from your computer into a message within a discussion. Your photo must reside elsewhere. Some have used free photo hosting sites (www.zing.com/, www.fototime.com, www.clubphoto.com) to load their photos into a private folder and then post them within a message.

Here's how:

To get this:

Use this coding, but replace the ( and ) with < and >:

(img src="http://a332.g.akamai.net/7/332/936/0001/www.edmunds.com/pictures/79783.jpg")

Or: (img src="Photo URL address")

To make your photo a link like this:

do this:

(a href="Page URL address")(img src="Photo URL address")(/a)

    I posted on the main page..love the blue. I have the Pewter and got screwed out of the dark tint, dealer is playing dumb, of course. I'm thinking of off market if I don't get anywhere but my last truck had dark tint on the rear passenger windows (Jeep Grand) and I'm a little concerned about doing it on my AV. The wife's not the best at checking mirrors, instead prefering the shoulder look. This thing is too tall......even I lose small cars behind it.

    Any fedback?

    Just got finished applying the Zaino show car polish system on my Blue AV. What a job. Put three coats on it using the ZFX system. Still took over 6 hours to do.

    Dennis, I can't access your pictures on Yahoo. Is there a trick to doing so?

    I use Zaino on my Trans Am and will put it on my Blue Av when I get a chance. Right now I am trying to resolve a problem with a streaking in several cloudy areas in the clear coat on my indigo blue Av. Did you have any of these? After I get that resolved, I will put on the Zaino.

    Did you use the clay bar on it before you applied the Zaino? Zaino also has a new product out called ZFX - have you tried this? Supposedly it replaces the need for the Z1 and is something that you put right into the Z2 or Z5 products

    Clay before applying Z.

    Yes ZFX replaces the need for Z1 and allows for near instant cure times...supposedely enhances the shine too...I have not tried it yet since I never had a problem with Z drying here.

    You mix ZFX in a small bottle with 1 oz of Z2, Z3, or Z5 and have to use it all within 12 hours..then clean vial to be used again else you have to toss it... Friends say they hate the bottle since they are hard plastic and hard to squeeze so they bought some from local stores instead.

    You might need to cut and paste the link into your browser URL line for it to work. I works for me.

    I have not seen any cloudy areas on my Blue AV.

    I used the clay bar on some areas to remove contamination from the paint finish that could not be removed using the dawn soap. I did not use it on the whole truck.

    I did use the ZFX product. Makes it go a lot faster. I still ran out of time (took over 5 hours to do). Still have to put two more coats on the left side. I used the Z5 product with the ZFX.

    Dennis, I did as you said and cut and pasted the URL and it worked. WOW! Very nice! You are inspiring me to get my butt in gear now! I have a blue indigo Z66 as well.

    What have you used (if anything) on the plastic cladding? Would any of the Zaino products like Z14 or Z16 work on the cladding? The description of what these particular Zaino products should be used for doesn't quite match with the cladding but the Z16 has UV protectant in it. I have also heard about people using some stuff called 303 Aerospace Protectant but I don't know that much about it.

    I have not used anything on the cladding except the Z7 show car wash. I have also heard of the 303 protectant but have not tried it. I believe there is a web site mentioned here of where to get it.

    303 is a product like Zainos tire dressing. They are both PDMS water based dressings and both have UV inhibitors. There are other brands similar to these like vinylex, black magic semi gloss dash protectant to name a few.

    I use both on the plastic depending on the mood I am in. They give it a matte shine. Make sure with either product you let it sit a bit than buff off excess to prevent drips from morning dew.

  • Here's a pic of my Av with a bumper flag. Don't know why it's called that. The pole actually plugs into your hitch.
