    Default Getting Rid Of Swirl Marks.....

    Need a fairly cheap way of getting rid of the swirls on the bonnet, front doors and rook of the Siggy. When cleaned, polished and waxed they look quite bad.
    Any suggestions as to how to reduce their appearance. Megs stages 1,2 and 3 applied again the other day and has improved it a bit, but need something a bit more abraisive.....

    use scratch-x by hand or by machine... or, if you have a machine use a mild abrasive BUT NOT t-cut or the like...

    I used to use Farecla G3 mopping compound with a rotary machine, but now i've got some scratch-x to try to see if it's as good..

    Yes it can be applied by hand.

    When meguiars demo'd it today he did; scratchX...stage 1 paint cleaner....wax. I think i'd be tempted to use polish aswell though.

    scratch-x can be applied by either hand or machine, if doing by hand do it about 4-5 time's as we were told today it break's down quicker than other's,be prepared for aching elbow's..... going to give it another go myself soon as have swirl city on my car
