3M polishes and compounds are good stuff. If you are shopping at a retail store that's what I'd pick up! Wash & Dry, Compound, Polish, Sealant/Wax. Your going to need an abrasive polish or compound to actually remove the swirls, vs. some waxes or chemical polishes with fillers might just hide them rather than help rid them! If you're not set on 3M check out our Poorboy's specials on our home page, bang for the buck they are one of the best products out there. The SSR 2.5 & SSR 1 Combo would be what you are looking for.

Are you doing it by hand or with a buffer?
