    Hey all. I bought a 97 Accord Ex (dark green) and the paint is really mistreated. For the most part the clear coat is in tact minus a plate sized chunk in the hood where the clear is peeling off. It has a lot of deep swirl marks from improper washing or those drive up car washes. I would say...

    I've used the 3m headlight restoration kit and it's left me with really fine swirl marks that I just can't get rid of. I've used up all of the included 3m polish, gone at it with the foam pad and meguiar's plastx and my headlight is still smothered in circular swirl marks. After some...

    Figured I'd write a review on this kit since not many people use their products on this site. Over all I had a great experience with the kit as a whole. This was my first time using a PC and was hooked up very graciously at Autogeek.net. First I did a hand wash with Megs Gold class. Dried then...

    Why do I have swirl marks? What causes them? My car has only seen 7000 miles and has been garaged since bought, and has been washed and waxed often. -Is the culprit the buffer I use?(It's an older one that doesn't uses foam pads, but ~10inch 'bonnets') -Is my California car duster causing...

    okay so I did a detail on my rsx the other day and I pretty satisfied with the outcome and the paint looks 10x better than it did before but I still see slight swirl marks/scratches in the paint, u can only see them at a certain angle of light. I was just wondering if anyone might have an idea...

  12. Car Care RSX
    I just started getting into hardcore detailing, but i cannot for the life of me find a suitable light source to spot swirls besides the sun. In the sun I can see a shit load of swirls but I have already bought and tried two seperate halogen lamps to no avail. 1000W and 1400W halogen lamps both...

    I have an 03' Eternal Blue Pearl Base, and swirl marks are the death of me. Does anyone else have this color, if so what is your secret?
