couple of questions

Well, I'm ordering a 2007 GT, and it will be my second Mustang. My first one was a black 85 GT, and darn, was it sexy.

I want to get my 07 in black, I just dont want swirl marks, and paint chips, sooo....

Does buffing make swirl marks? And does the spray and go/whipe wax work well?

Who makes a clear bra for the front end of an S197? And is it worth it?

Washing and drying makes swirl marks when not done right. I havent seen a spray on wax that was worth a damn.

I use Zaino and wipe it down with quick detailer to keep it glossy. I only use Microfiber towels and I never have issues with swirls.

optimum spray car wax is the only spray wax i know of that holds up well, and make sure to use high quality microfiber towels for drying and buffing and polishing and that should prevent from getting swirls. here is a place that sells that stuff and i have had nothing but good experiences from them and some of the best prices.
excel detail

Hey bud,

I manage a paint and body shop and there are two major things that cuase "swirl marks." Washing it, and improperly using a buffer. Black is the best looking color on a car when it's clean, but it is just so hard to keep it clean because everything shows up on it. The spray wax is good for a quick temporary fix, but you really need to use traditional carnuba wax made by Mother's. Maguire's, or Zaino. Zaino is by far the best, but it is expensive as far as wax goes.

the 3M mask looks good at first, but be aware that after about a year the ends will start to turn yellow and looks bad,

they put that stuff on RV's at my work and later people complain,

later
