Finally had a nice sunny day to try the Zaino treatment... Alloy clearcoat metallic w/tungsten side stripes... the chemists at Zaino make some incredible stuff, the finish now looks like liquid metal. A couple of people here had requested more pics of Alloy....

PDK,

By far the best colour combo.

Those shots look awesome!

I'm 100% convinced of my colour choice.

Thanks for sharing.

:D :D :D

Very nice. That was my first choice, but changed my mind and went with the fastest color. High Performance White.:D :D

Car looks really good!! I like that color as well. I've seen a few up here at the shop, mostly white with different stripes.

And I'm a believer in the Zaino stuff as well. Took a weekend out of my life when my old '03 F150 SuperCrew was brand new, had the Blue Metallic and it looked liquid as well.

Thanks everybody for the comments.....Funny thing is that I only used 2 steps of the Zaino products. After a wash, I did only:
  • Z-2 Pro polish with ZFX accelerator....followed by....
  • Z-5 Gloss Enhancer
..and that's it.

I imagine that the Prez will fully school us on the entire Zaino system---looking around pic gallery section and found this> http://www.fordgt500.com/forums/vbpicgallery.php?do=view&g=6...
the poor guy... these delivery people are sadistic...stop the insanity & give the man his car! :mad:

Couple more pics-

Prez,

Do you know if those are the 20" Razors on the Alloy coupe?
Yep, they are. I really like them, but I can't seem to pull the trigger. The clearance from the brembos is so slight, it makes me nervous. You can barely slip a fingernail between the rim and the caliper. American Racing said the clearance is fine, but it is tight.

The clearance is tight on the 20" rims? If that is true, then I won't even consider the 18" Razors. I was hoping they would fit, as I don't want to go to 20s. I'll hold out hope that the Steeda Ultra Lites in 18" will clear. Somehow I doubt it, though.

Yeah, the 18" Razors definitely do not fit. They hit the brembos.

It sure is hard to find aftermarket wheels for the Shelby. You'd think wheel manufacturers would be jumping at the chance to put out product for this car. I don't get it.
