    Will someone please tell me the best and easiest way to remove swirls marks that are very visible in dark colored cars and trucks? My mom has a black convertible and I have a medium red pearl metallic truck and both have swirl marks that I want to remove.

    When I posted I should have said the swirl marks are from not correctly washing the vehicles. I was taught to always use a quality wash mitt and go only in one direction not in a circular direction.

    Thanks in advance!

    I was told pledge works the best on black paint but I haven’t tried it yet.

    If they're swirls from a circular (high speed) buffer, an orbital buffer works good to remove them. 3M Imperial Hand Glaze, part #05990 works great, but not for long. Just fills in the swirls, doesn't remove them.

    I would say an orbital buffer is one of the best ways to remove swirl marks.

    The best way is to not put them in in the first place;)

    Back when I detailed professionally, this is what we used on all dark colors to remove swirls. Black, navy blue, dark green, charcoal, graphite, etc. Works like a champ.

    I believe that original product was discontinued. I think this company picked up the formula and still sells it.
