    Scott:

    I've read all the other posts on scratch removal, but none answer my question. While waxing my car, I noticed tiny scratches on the hood. I plan to use Meguiar's Dual Action Cleaner/Polish and to follow it up with Swirl Free Polish.

    A few questions:

    1.) Which cut of DAC/P should I be using: heavy, medium or fine and why?
    2.) After using the Swirl Free Polish, should I use the #7 that I usually use to polish?
    3.) After removing the scratches, can I go back to using the #7 twice a year until scratches re-appear?

    TIA

    1) Only one version of DAC/P. It is similar in cutting power to Fine Cut #2. If the scratches will come out (not just fill in), DAC/P should be strong enough to remove them. Diamond Cut is usually too strong.

    2) If you want to add an even deeper shine, yes by all means use #7.

    3) I would use #7 every 6 months but also add #9 or Swirl Free once a year for a deeper cleaning.

    Ahh, sounds good. For some reason I thought there were different versions of DAC/P. :uh: Thanks!
