    Default Fine scratches

    While washing and drying the car today i noticed loads of tiny scratches all over paint work must be from car wash before i got it, was wondering whats the best product to use as i havent got a car polisher or would it be better to get a detailer to sort it out and if so what sort of money would it cost ? many thanks Ralph

    i use zaino swirl remover i find it really good, best thing to do is maybe clay the car first this gets rid of all the wax and polish thats on the car then your down to the paint the swirl remover you use will get rid of the light scratches better, heres a link of what i did last weekend, http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=128924
    just make sure once clayed a good polish and wax are needed to seal the car to protect the paint, a good wax is chemical guys Butter wet wax imo it's one of the best ive used

    to get all the swirls/scratches gone you need to use a Duel Action polisher or a Rotary polisher this is best used by someone who knows what they are doing my mate is a valeter/detailer and charges about £140, hope that helps mate
