after some advice on removing swirl marks from my brilliant red a3 , ive always washed my cars using proper methods by hand and have recently purchased a red a3 with the worst possible swirl marks . Ive given the car a couple of going overs since i got it and although it looks lovely and shiny once clean as soon as the sunlight hits it the horrors are revealed.
ive never machine polished a car before and the more i read up on it the more i get bewildered !! the options are amazing and choosing the right method is a science i cant quite understand so hopefully someone will be able to offer some advice on how they would do it.
firstly i was going to buy/borrow a da polishing machine ,i have all the shampoos, clays ,waxes etc but nothing for machining/swirl removal
so basically need to know which products to buy and use that are 'noob' friendly and will get results . including what compound with which pad and which step etc
im not sure how many steps are necessary but ideally i dont want to spend a small fortune as i only plan on doing this the once but i cant stand the swirls and need them gone
any advice is most welcome
