ILUV,

Can you come to Boston and wash and detail my car? I'll pay you $40.00. Hehe.

Lol ... If I lived closer I'd for sure detail your car! $40 is a good price! I'd accept that offer

Aaron: The clay bar won't remove the swirls though. Try buying Meguair's Swirl-X. I bought some the last time I was in the US (since we can't buy it here for some reason) but I have yet to try it out.

Skip the swirl-x, and go right to The Meguiars Ultimate Compound. That bottle removes swirls, scratches, and restores color. Its a proven fact by me. Meguiars cleaner wax after that wouldnt hurt ya either. lol. Then I always top it off with Meguiars Tech Wax 2.0. I do these 3 steps twice a yr. Before winter, and before summer. Using a buffer, using a foam pad for applying Ulitmate Compound, microfiber pad for appyling wax cleaner, and a buffing pad for removing the tech wax. Thats the best way Ive figured out to do it. As far as using the meguiars products. I remove the other 2 with a Microfiber towel. Amazing results each time. It just gets better and better the more I do it.

With ultimate compound, remember to do one section at a time. That stuff is difficult to remove once dried, the results are slick.

I used the ultimate compound and didn't find it removed the swirls. It did remove a couple of small scratches near the wheel fender.

I think next time I need to use the buffer for it.

My dad has a buffer kit in the garage, that I think we have only used once. It's too heavy for me to hold, maybe I'll buy myself a new one when I get back. Something that is lighter to hold.

IMO the heavier ones are easier to use, less effort to add pressure on surfaces. Plus they have better speed control, like a Porter Cable or Makita. I'll most likely go to a pawn shop, ive seen lots of them there lol.
