    Default Swirls

    eh up chaps. my veccy is just over 3 years old now and the paintwork is in good order (i think) ive recently joined dw site and have been looking through some of the cars on there, im sure most of you have seen them, im talking brand new cars or a few month old that look like they've had a sander put to them. it then got me thinking if the paintwork on these cars is so bad maybe mine isnt as good as i thought, but looking on my car i cant see any swirls on the paintwork, ive had the car for nearly two years and have always taken care of it ie never been through a car wash and onlky washed with a mitt and tbm, so my question is if there is swirls or defects on the bodywork how can i tell as im planning on taking a weekend off to give it a real good clean so could tackle it then, ta

    hi m8

    firstly what colour is your car ??

    its depending what colour your car is as very light cars you cant really see
    swirl marks,ive got a signum in panacotta and i cant see any swirl
    marks although im sure there is but i just cant see them,most dark cars you
    can see them without a doubt.


    i had another signum which was the IS3 previously in metro blue which you
    may know if it and it was swirl marked everywere and i got ian from finer
    detail on it and he done the works on it as i was getting a feature on it with
    total vauxhall and it came up like a treat.

    the process is on detailing world with a write up if it help you and give you
    an idea.
