I just bought my car last week. But the idiots that washed it at the dealership used terry towels to dry it off! :pat:

So now it has light swirls that bug the @#[email protected]$ out of me! Any suggestions on the best way to remove those?

congrats on your new purchase, i suggest you put a fresh coat of wax on it in order to protect your paint.

Steps:
Claybar
cleaner wax
paste wax
buff like crazy

Stick with Miguiars, their stuff is the best

nice buy mate, I have had a few black cars now and the only product I use is Auto Glym Super Resin Polish, the results speak for itself, plenty of elbow grease and this is what you can achieve, Auto Glym is like new paint in a bottle :biggrin:

Get a PC (porter cable). They are about $75 or so and a great investment if you plan on keeping your ride top notch. It is great for novice detailers as it does not generate too much heat to mess up your paint, but just enough to get those minor scratches and swirls out.

Hey 1BAD300CTOURING,

Congrats on the new Car! :fing02:

A Porter Cable is a wonderful tool, when used injunction with Swirl and Haze Remover (SHR) results = Happy Swirl Free Paint!

It would also be a good idea to follow the SHR with a Polish and Wax.

Let me know if this Helps!

Thanks,

Ok now I know what a PC is. But still lost becuase there are several Porter Cable tools out there and I still haven't found the one that was mentioned to use to remove the swirls on my car. Someone please help! :dunno:

+1 on the PC..

Quick tip: Go buy some body parts from your local pick/pull yard to practice on.

There is plenty of info on this forum regarding swirl marks etc.

1. Wash (dawn)/ dry
2. clay
3. wash/dry
4. polish
5. seal or wax it.

Do your research and you will be a happy camper..:fing02:

Here's the link to the website that Justin (from Adam's Polishes) recommends for the Porter Cable. Rambit ordered one recently and it arrived in one week (plus he lives in Canada).

I could be wrong but I think its not the PC that removes the swirls its the swirl remover,which ever product you decied to use that will take out the swirls.I think its the pads you choose also.

Why yes I did. At the time I ordered my detailing supplies from Adam's Polishes they were on back order. Justin gave me the Tools Plus link and mine was $99.95 plus shipping. To Canada this was $126 so I'm very happy about that.

When I spoke to the guy from Tools Plus he said they had just shipped 80 units to Adam's, so I think it should be fine to order from them now. I recommend getting the kit specifically for power buffing from Adam's. It has all the pads and supplies you'll need for a perfect job and is the only effective way to completely remove swirls. There's an excellent 1 hour DVD that comes with the kit as well. Don't forget there's a discount for 300cforums members too!!!

Apparently this PC is the most popular buffer and is definately suited for this job. All you get is the basic machine if ordered alone.

The kit from Adam's has everything including an adaptor to easily change out the colour coded pads along with several bottles of swirl remover, machine polish, machine wax, applicator pads and cloths etc.
