    wasnt so sunny today so thought I would have a bash at removing some swirls from the zed, got my kit out & chose a medium pad with meguiars ultimate compound-I washed the car & went over it with a clay mitt (so much faster than using a claybar)

    after taping up the shut lines I did some polishing

    It really gives a noticeable improvement to the clarity of the clear coat. image.jpg

    Hi Smartbear
    Looks really good. Be interested to know if minor scratches and swirl marks were removed and whether you used a cutting compound.

    Hi, yes it got rid of the majority of the swirls & looks really clear now, I used meguiars "ultimate compound" which is a cutting compound.
    It definitely improves the cars appearance
    Regards
