    Default I'm a little confused...

    Following recommendations I went out and bought some Megs ScratchX to try and sort the swirls in my paint. I tested the stuff on the boot lid and there seemed to be a pretty decent improvement. Decided to apply Megs step 1 to 3 and wait a week to see what it looked like. Problem is, as soon as I'd wiped step 1 off, the swirls had reappeared!

    I've been working under a halogen light and checking progress by looking at the reflection of the lamp in the paintwork. Before Megs step 1 it was pretty clear, afterwards I could see loads of very light swirls again.

    Anyone got any idea why this is happening? I though scratchX was supposed to actually remove the swirls and scratches, not just mask them...

    ******... I was hoping to get rid of the scratches completely, not just fill them...
