I have recently got the detailing bug, and have a good routine of Bilberry wheel cleaner, CG Maxi suds/2 bucket method, AG SRP etc. but it has just made the swirls more obvious! So, on to the next step...
A friend and I spent all day yesterday cleaning and machine polishing the car in an attempt to de-swirl it. Some wet and dry took care of some long scratches down the doors and on the arches. We tried Farecla G3 and some Mirka stuff both on a DA, but it just didn't touch the swirls, even with 5-6 passes!
We gave up on that bit as we were running out of time and hit it with Menzerna Final Finish on a red Sonus SFX pad and then gave it a coat of Mirka carnuaba wax.
So, my question is has anyone got a good pad/compound recommendation that will de-swirl my 318? I am thinking Menzerna Power Gloss on a cutting pad at the moment.
