    I was planning on buying SFP in the gallon size but I would think it would be difficult to pour.

    You can order the 12 oz dispensers through Meguiars site. That is what I use. The top has a squirt nozzle so you can dispense as much or as little as you need at a time.

    scott i was wondering as i was browsing through all the fine medium and heavy cut cleaners, are they really necessary for getting swirls out? or would swirl free work just as well? and would the medium cut be the best overall?

    NoXeN-without seeing your car in person, it is hard for me to say. Normally, you would not need anything stronger than DACP, which starts off as strong as Fine Cut #2 and ends up about the same as Swirl Free.

    Definitely stick with the Body Shop Professional line as I feel those are Meguiars (or really, anyone else's!) best products when it comes to removing paint defects, swirls, etc.

    I would start with the DAC/P, the way you described those scratches that you have.

    1 gallon is an absurd amount, unless you're going to be detailing professionally.

    i did use the DACP polish but i didnt really rub it in, i just kind of rubbed it on then buffed it off like a wax :doh: so it'll make a difference if i do it correctly next time?

    Yes, you need to work it into the paint until it looks nearly clear and dry so you completely break down the abrasives in it.
