    Default Best way to remove swirl marks from black paint

    My paint has swirl marks all over previous owner didnít maintain the body work very well.

    Iíve tried poorboys swirl mark remover to no avail. Iíve been thinking of getting a duel action polisher but abit worries about this as Iíve never used one before Iíve always used elbow grease.

    Now my question is as a newbie to this would I be able to get the hang of using one. Iíve seen one on eBay

    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F273202487501

    I donít want to spend mega money one if I canít get the hang of it.

    What are the best products to use to get rid of swirls and to maintain the paint work. I like the poorboys range but a friend said to look at auto finesse or dodo juice as I will get a lot better results

    Thanks Sam

    I wouldnt buy a rotary, they can be very unforgiving. By a Dual Action and read read read read, watch Youtube video's, read read and read some more. If you dont it could end up with an expensive trip to the body shop.

    pretty much swirl marks at every angle you look at it where the light hits , no rust however and couple scratches here and there bonnet has fair few expected for an old car tho , when getting car washed etc much more noticeable im probably being very picky as most non car people think it looks good!
