How do you remove swirl marks?

I went in the garage and switched on the lights and looked at the paint and i saw LOTS of little streaks, my truck is Silver streak mica, and the reason why i bought it in this color is so that these marks wont be as noticeable than a dark coloured car, how do you remove these swirls, and by now im guessing it is normal for all cars?

you need to polish them out with some swirl remover type polish then wax it and you'll be good

Automatic car washers are the worst for this. They never get the car totally clean, and them some kid appies what amounts to a sand paper rub to dry it.

You can always tell after a really short amount of time who uses the automatic car washes by the finish on their vehicle.

Use a swirl remover polish. If your results aren't to your liking you may become addicted to the above website.

For prevention use the two bucket wash method or get a wash bucket with a tray built in that allows for grime and debris to fall out of your wash mit. Use a wash mitt that is either microfiber or wool. Good luck.

Use a high-quality micro-abrasive polish, a buffer and a very soft pad.
