    Default Snow foam lance + swirls

    Ordered snow foam lance for my karcher on wednesday from mark at Autobrite. And true to his word it arrived friday morning complete with the foam concentrate. Great service mark 10 out of 10 !!! Used it in anger on saturday.. wow. Then it rained and its now covered in rain spots. Black cars eh, dont you just love them.

    Will be placing more orders as soon as i can fathom out how to tackle my swirls on my black estate, think the previous owner loved car washes

    Is it possible to use plenty of elbow grease to get rid with something like swirl x etc (dont forget its an estate!) Or is my only option to go the power option. And then whats the best way to go once i've got it looking factory or at least less swirly.

    Have been reading the threads and keep getting conflicting info, i no its ultimately down to personal preferance. But dont want to waste time going about it the wrong way. One says stage 1 this, dodo that, then collonite the other. Arrrgh Help.

    I'm not asking much am i? All i want is to be able to look like i can dive into the paint...ok maybe not that good but but you no what i mean.

    All i no is that you guys are THE ones to ask. Please enlighten me. Im all ears

    P.S. I pm'd the info you needed thanks again mark

    power option really to get rid of the swirls and a cutting pad and semi abrasive polish... by hand you wont really see much difference..
    the only other thing you could do is use a polish with fillers to try and mask the swirls.. try autoglym srp for the easiest option..

    Thats it!! thats the shine im after. Your car look just how i want mine to look. Seems like i'm going to have to raid the piggy bank yet again. Think i've stumbled across the thin edge of the wedge with this detailing lark.

    The thought of attacking my car with high speed spinning thing not knowing how to use it in anger. Makes me think that adrenilin is indeed brown Thanks for the offer, would appreciate it.
