    Default Detailers Please HELP!!!

    i was at my fathers on the weekend valeting his Triumph Stag Mk1 did a stunning job on her as always with Auto G,

    i was then introduced to a new spray on cleaner and another product a polish which is meant to be fantastic you mix one cap with a 1,ltr of water "cleaner & polish in seperate spray bottles" so i decided to do another good deed and do step mums ford kack "KA" so i used this product and sure enough it was half decent stuff. so i then decided right ok mine only needs a little wash and a very quick polish as im driving back to cornwall today "from yeovil" so i tested it on a small patch on front wing and was a good result just a lil top up that i need so i decided to spray it on the bonnet i let it film up as per manual not in direct sunlight as well started to buff it and all i heard was a fine grit wet n dry "sandpaper" sound and feel panic struck in! washed the car again this time with the mighty Auto G still felt the same tried a numerous amount of products and nothing on close inspection there are fine little black spots all over my car which can be removed by finger nails "gently" but there are just too many to do find and get rid of.
    yesterday i decided to use meguiars extra strong car wash which also attacks tar and bugs this has made a slight difference so i then used super resin polish and extra protection once finished great result BUT still black spots also its now got swirls what can i do/use to resovle this problem??

    thanks in advance for help
