    thats how it all starts .........

    trouble its best to do it all in one go, i.e wash, clay, remove swirls etc, polish, sealant/wax.

    sounds like it is just swirls then dude,
    the problem you have is as you know removing them,

    Autoglym Super resin polish is the short term solution as it contains fillers which disguise the scratches (put a coat of Extra gloss protection on top as this seals the polsih in!) in the long term tho removing them is a bit more complicated, you can buy any number of cutting polishes but using hand application wont create enough heat and bite to lift the micron of top coat that is scratched, for this you'l need a dual action machine polisher.

    one word of caution tho, swirls are a constant problem if your wash technique is not up to scratch per say

    iv learned you get what you pay for regards detailing and washing equipment the hard way lol!

    hope this helps mate

    you may want to try this in the interm as well mate in place of the SRP!
    i cant reccomend it personally having never used it but it is receiving an extremely good write up amongst the detailing circuit.
