curley:Its all in the correct procedure for correcting any defects in the paintwork..i.e s electing right polish with pad, correct wax with pad, correct machine speed, not polishing to a dry buff etc etc....
When i picked up the vehicle it had been through many car washes,which had inflicted scratches,swirls etc to the paintwork so i spent 18hrs on the major panels just correcting these.....
Having been in the valeting business for 10yrs now, and having being taught by the best i have quite a good ability to produce outstanding results on most paint's, athough every visit to the states i learn more and more[^][^][^]
That?s more like it!  Just what I wanted to hear and I thank you for taking the time to post it.
The swirl marks are the toughies as apparent by your procedure and I think as indicated not everyone would be able to do such things. I for one would be hesitant to use an electric polisher on my paintwork without supervision or watching someone that has done it before. - I bet you can really mess it up! lol
I think once the swirls are removed I could maintain them, its just getting them out!
Thanks again mate
My car has done some 130,000 miles now, which is why it could benefit. Hand Glaze covers them well, however deep down it has issues!
Out of interest, how much would a "de-swirl" cost?
Oxford: From ?100,thro to ?200, pending on the car...can take anything from 8 hrs to 16 hrs to get a flawless finish.....Get saving buddy then give us a call
By the way an electric polishing machine that oscillates is not to difficult to use without doing damage, but will not remove swirls easily...A Rotary machine is needed for this, which is a dangerous machine in an inexperienced persons hands.
