you, like many of us, have a black car... wat else can i say? u can see EVERYTHING on a black car. spirals are common with usage. using a polish together with a light compound, with a buffer would help take alot of hte spirals. "cut" it with the buffer and you'll get a much better shine and blacker paint (take a look at my cougardb profile).

dude, all black cars have swirls, but the following steps will make it look perfect again:

- Clay Bar
- 3M Swirl Mark Remover for Dark Colors
- Meguires Polish
- Meguires Gold Class Wax...

I guarantee it will glow after that...

the clearcoat has been scratched. stop taking your car through the automatic car wash.

I have a rio red new paint about a year ago, and I have those damn swirls (spirals) too!!! They drive me insane!!!! :banghead: Now about this color sanding, what is it? I have never heard of it...

I second that!! I have a black cougar as well and that process works really well if you're like me and don't trust yourself with an electric buffer (don't want to burn the clearcoat off)...I use Wizard's clay with Zymol or Meguiar's detailer spray. Gold Class wax RULES!!!

THAT is the real answer.... just make sure of which grade of compound u use... to heavy and u will buff the clearcoat off! :biggrin:
