Thanks guys! I'm blushing

JJs89lx-You can do it by hand, but it's a crap load of work! There's a product called ScratchX that I use for small area's I can't reach with the buffer, but it takes a good 15-30 minutes to do a small area(and by small, I mean a 6inch X 6 inch area). If you have a lot of stamina and patience you could knock it out. Other than that, I'd recomend you invest in a dual action polisher and some good products. You'll knock it out in no time with the right tools.

If you'd like to bring it out to me sometime I could give you some pointers. I have the Scratch X here, along with some other products you can try. It's not easy to do it by hand, but it can be done.

It realy depends on a lot of things. How bad the swirls are, how tough the clear is, what color the car is, how big the car is, if I got laid the night before, etc...
Usually I charge around $150-$250 to just remove swirls. Thats bringing the paint back to the best possible condition that I can bring it to, then 2 coats of wax. You get way more than you pay for with me. I am priced very fairly for the quality of work that you get.

You should be able to pick it up at any Autozone or Oreilly's, and I think even Walmart carries it.

Scratch X.

You can reduce visibility of swirls just by using the clay bar, washing it with a good car soap (Mags Gold Class), and applying a couple of coats of wax.

Well since I got the car in decemer I have clay bar'd it, and wax'd several times. the only problem is the wax only hides it for a couple weeks. After it is washed a few times it looks bad again, well bad to me atleast.

Hopefully nobody would skip out on me, and I'd have to be selective on who I open this offer up to. I don't like working for free, and if you have a bad reputation on this board, you might as well count yourself out. I will be checking out anyone I extend this offer to, and half would need to be paid at the time of service.

You know I would never do you wrong, but I would also just prefer to pay you in full.

Well it's an option that is out there for you.

I just don't want to get 50 cars all at once when spring hits in full force. There is no way I would be able to keep up, and I'd have to turn people away or make them wait for a while. Just trying to spread the workload out a little before the mad rush starts.
