    I'd only wet flat if you know the panel has been painted since the factory finish, if its not coming up you'll need a more aggressive compound only...

    Well to be more specific I wash it every week with a light polish (by hand) and clean all interior. .. thought most ppl who care for there cars clean them at least oncw a week. ..I always haveee !!! Eveb in the snow today (waxd today to protect from salt) but due to all the cleaning swirll marks are unavoidable ni matter what methods yoy use.. so a good paint correction is needed and will be getting done ib nwxt week or soo..

    I will be doing a test pannel and if swirll marks dont go with a fine cutting compound on da machine polisher alone, then I will flat panel with p1500 wet and dry thn buzz over with p3000 trizac pad then also p6000 trizac pad, machine poish up to hopefully have paintwork back near perfect condition...in most cases a good da machine polish isn't enough to solutions the matter. ..

    now i get you, i dont wash my car so much due to adding the swirls you get with excess washing, i just use a decent wax over the winter months and mainly let it stay dirty, when spring arrives i do a full hit wash clay polish seal wax etc etc so it's nice and easy to keep clean over the so called good months, it then get's a quick wash every couple of weeks or so, again in prep for winter it gets washed and a good long lasting wax (collonite 915) and my 16'' winter wheels go on just in case, i suppose that the beauty not useing it that much though
