where did you get the 303 hp sticker and the GXP overlay? I would like to purchase them also for my GXP. Same for the brake light. Thanks. V8Jim

How often do you reapply Zaino, did mine, four coats with the spray in between. I love the shine. Do you reapply the base before new coats?

It was posted before that those overlays can be found here:
I've been thinking about getting some myself. I bought some of the vinyl overlays for my previous GTP and it really made the car stand out from the crowd.

Can't the GXP badges and a HP303 badge be ordered from the dealer so the GXP badge is exactly the same as the one on the GXP, not a decal? Can someone answer this for me, please? I am going to the dealer next week and will ask in the Parts Dept. and the price. But, I was wondering if anyone knew before I go. Thanks. Chats1

I purchased a hood bra for my 05 gxp to keep the hood from getting the rock chips, and keep the neighborhood cats from free sliding down the front. BAD mistake. The bra left more scuff marks ingraved into the paint that the other. I removed it each time i washed the car, to keep the surface underneath clean. The bra companies claim to have soft materials, and wont harm the paint. BULL CRAP. The only thing those are good for, would be to hide a dent.

The Grafxwerks overlays are reasonably priced and very high qualityó-perfect fit, don't fade, etc. Be sure you have them lined up right before you apply them. The adhesive is very sticky. Spritzing the surface that you will be applying them to with water, as they recommend, helps get it right before applying pressure.
I Zaino my cars about 4 times a year; hood, top, and trunk/spoiler more often. I always start with Z-1, then Z-2 or Z-5 (I really like the new Z-5 Pro--Z-5 really does eliminate swirls and spider-web), then Z-6 spray, then another coat a few hours, or a day later. I keep it looking good after washes with Z-8 Spray Seal. Iíve never put more than 3 coats of anything on. If you go over to the Edmunds Zaino forum, youíll find folks over there who have put 30-50 coats on. Too much work for me.
I tried Ice on my wifeís black GTP, but donít like it at all. It goes on easy and comes off easy and doesnít leave a powder residue as advertised (neither does Zaino), but it leaves an oily residue. I followed the directions, but it leaves oily streaks that took a lot of Zaino and elbow grease to remove. Maybe others like it, and maybe I didnít know what I was doing, but Iíll stick with Zaino.

I have read, and experienced first hand that when you do any kind of waxing or polishing of a "dark" colored vehicle, if you get the "greasy" or "swirl" marks on your car, the best way to get rid of them is to DAMPEN a clean soft cloth, and go over those areas with it. It takes the marks right out.

I may not have current info, but to my knowledge the online site is the only place to get it.
