I noticed some superfine swirl marks, primarily on the hood of my black MDX. They look like very fine scratches, somewhat cloudy, as opposed to the spiderwebbing/swirl you sometimes get from waxing on a dark car. I can try and take some pics tomorrow when it's sunny, but am not sure if they'll come out on a camera.

I am guessing that the dopes @ the dealer used a dirty rag when they waxed my car before delivery.

Suggestions? I'm thinking Dawn on the hood to remove everything, and a re-wax, and haven't a clue which kind to use or whether there's something in between I ought to do to get rid of them.

The dealer is nowhere near where I live, so a return trip isn't feasible.

Thanks in advance.

Wow - over 3 yrs old. I've learned a lot about detailing since then :D

I used 3M scratch and swirl remover for this particular instance. The pics w/before and after are in this thread.

I'm still using that product most of the time with a PorterCable. Also using 3M Machine Polish, 3M Machine Glaze, and most recently (for severe scratches) 3M Trizact...all courtesy of Tommy Leon as demo/test samples.

The 3M Trizact did an unbelievable job of removing some severe scratches that MrsWorm didn't cause by not pulling into a planter box. :rolleyes:

Unfortunately, I don't have b4/after pics of that one.
