    Hi all,
    While filling up at the garage the other evening, i noticed light swirls over the car under the forcourt lights, i purchased a Jeffs Werkstat acriylic kit last year, which ive used a few times now and very happy with the results, but after getting the car washed while out shopping a few times, i think this is where the swirls have come from. I'm guessing using sponges or dirty wash mitts. Anyhow my question is would my Werkstat kit remove the swirls or do i need something a little more agessive? Any advise would be great.
    Thanks Steveo

    The werkstat will not remove swirl marks, you need a polish for that.

    Hi Steveo, as above, Werkstat only protects, so in this case you will need to consider the use of a proper light abrasive polish. I suggest you grab a cuppa and read these two in-depth guides about polishing process and which polish to choose...

    What does polishing do? - http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acatalog/what-does-polishing-do.html

    What polish should I use? - http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acatalog/what-polish-should-i-use.html

    In the second guide, there are appropriate sections about polishing hard audi paint by hand or machine, both of which make product recommendations.
