    I've used Eagle Nano Wax or similar products. My car is black and when I use the waxes made for black cars it helps. I guess the wax molecules are smaller so it fills in the swirl marks. I have tried black wax and its just a mess...

    This is after 7 years in the FL sun an 167k miles...

    I found that the Turtle Wax Black detailer spray really helps. It's as easy as using Windex. It comes in the Turtle Wax Black Box kit (which you might want to look into) or you can buy it separately at any part store.

    the best way to remove them is wit a highspeed buffer with a foam pad and a good cutting coumpound then a good sealing wax with a micro fiber applicator pad or a orbital buffer. a good clay job before both these does wondrs aswell!!!

    When detailing dark colours, a random-orbit polisher is your best friend. Use a regular buffer to get rid of the scratches, etc. But for your finishing stages, you'll have to use a random-orbit. It will severely reduce the amount of swirls you have.

    Would Meguiar's Scratch X and a buffer do the trick?

    Harbor Freight buffer $19.95. So it won't last a lifetime. It works great 4 times a year on 3 vehicles for about 5 years now. When i breaks, add it to your shooting junk pile and buy another.

    A rotary in the hands of someone inexperienced is a terrible thing.
