I would have thought you need a fine cut to get rid of the swirls first then a good wax over the top to protect it and make it shiny...

Definitely agree that meguires make some excellent products. That's pretty much all I use appart from Brite Shine

OK i will tell as i wont be back on till tuesday

we use a polish by 3M called final finish, it should be available at auto paint specialists. it is grey in colour and we use it with a special egg cup shaped pad on an orbital buff. wipe down with wet cloth then final polish with a microfibre cloth. do about half a panel at a time to avoid polish drying out. do it in the shade...... ummm use a fair amount but stop when it sprays off the buff.. pain in the butt job but.......

hope it helps

I used the meguirs next gen wax/polish as well, but on my poly green EF it still left some of the swirl marks, it made them better, but didnt make them fantastic...

brought the paint up brilliantly though!! :P
