    Default Paint swirls

    Hi all, does anyone know of the best product or technique to get rid of paint swirls? The idiot who owned car before me must of cleaned it with a brillo pad as it is covered in swirls and light surface scratches. I usualy colour magic it which does the job for about a week and then once it fades back to same old story, any tips?

    Hi Paul, mine was the same when I bought it, I used autoglym SRP and lashings of elbow grease, finished off with some wax.
