    swirl help

    hello guys those dreaded swirls are sending me mad, ive washed it several times to make sure all dirt ect is off then omg the sun hit it and swirls galore. ive had the lime prime out and gone over 1 side twice but there still there (not quite as bad) ill get some pics on shortly. what else can i use (thats good) to remove the swirls? im doing it by hand so keep that in mind. thanks guys

    You're not going to get much further by hand if they're deep swirls to be honest mate. It might be worth giving the Sonus hand polish bundle from CYC a shot though. Use the hard side of the German applicator and it'll work the polish more.

    it aint to bad m8, i used this on my car before i bought a DA, it will minimise the swirls wont be so noticable, but you wont get them out by hand i am afraid m8 will have to use a polisher.

    That'll probably need machining mate, can see where you've gone in heavy with the Lime Prime, bit of hologramming going on.

    where abouts are you mate? Might know of someone near you. As for just machining, if you can find someone to do it, should be about £50-£100
