the dreaded swirls


Recommended Posts

Evening all 

My latest x350 is the first black car I've owned in 50 odd years of car ownership. Being a low mileage car the paintwork is in very good condition apart from swirl marks when the sun shines on it. I'm sure that a good polish would fix it but what type? I've got an electric polisher but I'm a bit reluctant to use it in case I make things worse. Tried Colour Magic Black , Meguiars scratchex and a carbonara polish but if anything they made it worse.

Any advice most welcome.

Black is probably about the worst colour (well technically Black is a shade and not a colour) to keep looking good. Be careful with cutting compounds and polishing machines, if you are not experienced with using both.

Good Luck, Best Wishes and Regards, John.
