    If you want to get rid of the swirls i'd use 3m finesse-it, you can use it by hand or machine and it'll get rid of swirls quickly You could also try the AG cotton polishing cloths its what I use and there really soft. Remember to go in small circular motions overlapping each other to avoid swirl marks. I've just mopped over my car with G3 and the 3m product and its come out "blinging"

    2 coats of turtle wax and it should be good to go for a month atleast because I can't be arsed washing it again, spent nearly 4 hours on Monday
    cheers, i have used the 3m finesse before on other cars and was real good , i am really hacked off the car after the spray was flawless now in the sun or petrol forecourt i can see it , i will prob use the 3m gear, but would you guys recommend doing this , use the 3m finesse to remove swirls, then polish it, then seal it ,then carnuba wax it or could i miss out the sealant stage as i am using carnuba

    Don't need sealant to be honest. I personally don't like it unless the paint is 100% flawless. A good quality wax will do the trick and make the car look abit more glossier.

    How do you normally was the car? 2 bucket method is what I use, never use to think it would work but now that i've got a black car its worth doing and using a wash mit instead of a sponge

    Remember that 3m products have silicone in them so to some extent it gives you a waxy kind of finish depending on which one you go for

    I would have thought it's how younare washing your car that is creating all the swirls. It's just as if not more important than polishing for keeping your paint work looking good.

    What method do you use? 2 bucket method is good as stated above and also get a bucket with a grit guard in.

    i have always done car by hand with a bucket, i soak the car first with a hose then wash it with this method using a high quality chamios, then apply super resin and extra gloss while the polish is drying i slick all the tyres, i am now gonna start using microfibre cloths to apply and take off polish, the paint work is flawless no stone chips, scratches ( apart from the light swirls) there are no blemishes at all

    I use Megs 3 stage under recommendation from Kevin Whittaker. Works a treat.

    I use:

    1. Mequiars Scratch X 2.0 to start followed by: (this stuff will get swirls out of your paintwork when used with Sonus SFX pro applicator)

    2. Chemical Guys Wet Mirror Finish Polish - its the best i've used!

    if you've not tried meguiars stuff then i can only say....give it a go
    i used to be an autoglym fanboi but not since using the gold class polish....tech wax meant to be better/easier
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    today i went and bought some new polish , 3 for 2 at halfuds, took me ages to decide was really hard not to go for the usual autoglymn, but i bit the bullet and got meg stage 2 polish then megs stage 3 carnuba i also seeing as it was basiclly free got another carnuba wax product one i would never normally buy, all i can say is the stage 2 is a pain to take off compared to autoglumn super resin but left a totally different finish deeper but i dont know if its worth the extra elbow grease, then i applied the megs stage 3 carnuba and boy was i impressed what a finish and dare i say it one autoglymn could never get , was pretty easy to take off too was thinking of using a sealant too but was getting dark , go try the megs carnuba it really does leave a wet look on your car WOW one thing though i recon if your car had blemishes or imperfections may not be so forgiving, i did look at compounds for the swirls and may got for the g3 or finesse but will do it next time i recon, i did try a small are with a scratch remover but made things worse tbh, the pob is the bodywork had no imperfections before so notice anything that i do including maybe using different cloths to wash and remove polish, it really aint that bad but i like it bang on, do you guys rate microfibre cloths i have my own theory but have tried them which would you say is best for washing applying and removing
