    evenin all
    decided to have a look at the bodywork over last few days, clean an wax etc, and noticed some deep swirl marks that look like they are from regular automatic carwash brushes? found that its had some paint work done which i was expecting aswell, i was just wondering what i can use to get rid of the marks?
    thanks in advance

    Paint correction techniques using a machine polisher will remove swirl marks.

    Claying will just remove paint contaminants, not swirl marks.
