    Afraid i am a little to far away from you, or i would have sorted it for you. Do yourself a favour mate steer clear of the car washes ;)

    Not sure what you mean by a 'tcut polish', but there are a few people locally that will be able to give your car a good detail.

    I'm sure I could offer some services but to be honest it would be worth looking out for a detailer near by who can sort it for you.

    I'd hate to balls it up on someone elses car.

    depending how light the scratches, you will want something like 3m ultrafina using a waffle head on a polisher.

    this kind of polish will remove swirls and very fine scratches

    Do not use t-cut it's just as bad as a car wash!it kills your paintwork!buy some hood stuff from www.nedetailing.co.uk and they will sort your problem for you bud
