Factory paint? There's so much orange peel on our cars anyway. If you polish and buff the clear coat the swirls will go away.

swirls come from the tiny dirt particles that are still on your car afte you wash. they are stuck on the hood. you can see them on an aplicator pad after applying a new coat of wax. best way to help rid yourself of the problem is to claybar the car and then use a cleaner/scratch remover wax and then polish and then wax.

Microfiber only!

Did this about 6 months ago:

Here are some before and after pics on my dad's jeep. I did a half-n-half sort of thing practicing getting swirl marks out. I will still need to make a few more passes to get rid of the more stubborn swirl marks since my polish is a little weak, but you can still see a pretty big difference:

Before:






After:





Combo:

PC 7474 orbital buffer
Edge 2000 yellow cutting pad
Meguiars #4 heavy cut cleaner
Meguiars #2 fine swirl remover


That was only one pass...two passes later the swirls were gone.

you can sprinkle a little bit of baking soda on the wax just before you use a buffer and that helps git rid of swirls... i've done that to every car i have owned. never a problem with clear coats, it sounds crazy to do that, but it works...

I can understand that. It's a mild abrasive when mixed with polish...same thing with specific swirl remover waxes

Another cool thing about Baking soda is you can add it to your wash bucket to negate/dilute the effects of acid rain on your clearcoat.
