Swirl Marks on Black

1930 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  msu79gt82
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.

swirl marks

I have had black cars before, and yes what a pain to keep looking good. I use Meguiras or Zymol carnuba, and a small craftsmen orbital buffer once a month, this works well. If you let it go to long, you will need to use a good cleaner wax first, and then a carnuba. Somwetimes it can take a few coats to get them out. Lot's of work!!!:4:
