hey guys i've been on this site for a long time now, and i would like to say great job. my girl owns a 2003 rsx, but i own a 2001 solara. i love the rsx, its a wonderful car. my reason for posting is that i have many swirl marks my car and my car is dark blue so it very noticable. i bought meguiars scratchx and i'm wondering if it will work for removing these swirl marks. also is it safe to apply it to my whole car? thank you and again wonderful site.

Yes, it will help the swirls, probably will not remove them all, but will help. It is fine to use over the entire car.

Without seeing the swirls it is hard to recommend products. Are you working by hand? I think if the swirls are moderate, I would step up to #83 dual action cleaner polish. How bad are the swirls?

If you're going to use Scratch X make sure not to work it too hard into the paint since it's a mild abrasive. Gently move it along the surface, only apply two or three coats (follow directions on the tube).

If your car just has a mild amount of swirls all over the car you may just want to try a cleaner wax instead.

i used the meguairs three step deep crystal system before and it has a cleaner wax , polish and wax. it helped but didn't get much of it out. should scratchx work better?

i have a 100% cotton chenille mitt, absorber, and mircofiber towels. the swirls were probably from the previous owner
