I've had really good luck with Zaino for removing swirl marks and creating a really good, deep, wet shine.

Check it out @ http://www.zainobros.com

Have Fun,

Having had two all black vehicles, I never want to own another. Swirl marks? I never found a way to get rid of them. I have read that the best thing for today's clear coat finishes is a good Carnuba based wax. I used Eagle One (If I remember correctly) and it did work really well.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON 22-Apr-02 AT 10:35 PM (EST)]Cant go wrong with Meguires. A coat of the polish from time to time will take care of those swirls. I used to have Black 97 Explorer, the swirls were enough to drive ya insane.

ZAINO's is the way to go. Here's what it looks like on black. I used a clay bar, z1, 3 coats of z5 (swirl remover) and 1 coat of polish for NON-CLEARCOAT finish (I forget if that's the z2 or z3) This stuff is amazing. I haven't used the accelerator they just came out with yet, but it definitely sucks to wait 24 hours between coats.

Zaino. I've used them all over a lot of years, and a carnauba based wax can't touch a polymer based polish like Zaino.

I spent five years working for the finishes division of duPont and have more than a broad knowledge of car polishes. Polymer polishes have long been used on aircraft, but wax based consumer polish companies have somewhat of a captive market with production capital costs amortized years and years ago. It's too profitable, and until recently, there was no need to offer the public a polymer based polish for their cars. The public is usually very slow to change buying habits

NuFinish was the first successfully mass marketed polymer polish in the consumer marketplace. An excellent product (it'll also outlast a carnauba wax based polish by two or three times), but it has cleansing chemicals in it that weaken the polymer suspension. They did that because the majority of people (customers) who polish cars balk at two-step polishing processes and prefer a combination cleaner/polish.

As somebody else stated, you MUST follow Zaino's instructions, especially the pre-application prep. If you do, and you like your rides well-protected and shiney, you'll be a Zaino convert.

Using a carnauba based wax in this day and age is like having rayon bias ply tires on your truck.

(No Zaino affilation of any kind, just a satisfied customer)
