Is there any way you can polish out swirl marks from metalic paint by hand without having to get a pro with a buff (big dollars was qouted up to 600bucks} the paint is like new apart from swirl marks that look ugly in the sun.

If the paint is fresh you will have a bit of trouble as it takes a few weeks to cure properly.Once it has cured a good swirl remover as decribed above and then a good quality polish with a large percentage of carnuba wax should do the job
