Here's what I did -
To get the swirls out of my Jet Black car here's what I did -

1) wash car thoroughly
2) clay entire car using Pinnacle PolyClay and lubricant
3) polish entire car using Porter-Cable 7424 polisher and Griot's #3 machine polish
4) apply 2 coats of Pinnacle Souveran carnauba paste wax
5) admire the shine

It was a lot of work, I spent 10 hours going over the car. But it shined better than when it was new when Iwas finished.

Not too shabby for a 4-year old car -


Ditto !!!

Porter-cable & Griots is a common remmedy, you can use #2 as well and get a slightly deeper polish, which may be needed if you have bad swirls.

As for wax/polish products I love Zaino as well !
