Earlier this spring I zaino'd my VR-4 and it looked wonderful. Since then however I guess I went through some freshly tarred roads or something cause now I have a bunch of little black spots everywhere.

So, what do I do now? Do I have to start all over with stripping everything off and tar remover and then back to the 5 coats all over. I want to get it done before winter because I only drive on nice sunny dry days. Anybody know what I need to do? Thanks in advance.

If it is actually tar and you can't get it off by simply washing I'd say try claybarring it. And I'd recommend just starting over... wash the car down with dawn and then dry it... then start the zainoing process. Right now I have 4 coats on.. tomorrow I'm putting the 5th and probably final coat. :)
Sure it takes several days to put on several coats but it's worth it isn't it? :D

Soon they'll have an additive out that will make it so it dries instantly and you can put multiple coats on at one time.... Sal needs to hurry up and release that before spring. :p

I have over 40 coats of Zaino on my VR-4, i'm addicted:)) I use Meguiars clear coat scrub about twice a year to get rid of all the crud on my paint, shines it up really well, you don't have to worry about dawning after that since it does not contain any silicone or waxes. Just start with the zaino process like you normally would, except you might want to throw on a coat of the zaino prep/conditioner first.
