    did my yearly detail this weekend, used everything in this kit

    http://www.autogeek.net/optimum-kit.html

    I've used all of this stuff before and I've never gotten swirls, so I'm not really sure what can I do to get rid of them

    I have some meguiars swirl remover I was going to go over the car by hand with, but I don't know if that will work :hs:

    If you have a VW or a BMW you will probably need Meguiars #105 and #205 instead. #105 has a lot more cut than Optimum Compound. Optimum has great products but the introduction of the new Meguiars polishes has put them in the lead when it comes to paint correction.

    well after looking at it today it seems a lot of the swirls are gone

    maybe it's just in the wax and I just need to use better microfibers :dunno:

    you can kind of see it here, but my camera sucks at picking up reds :canon:

    Yes, it is pretty good but doesn't cut like #105. On Acura paint, it probably won't matter, it tends to be on the soft side anyway.

    hummm... perhaps it's time for me to use this #105 on my 06' Civic as well...

    it's fucking swirl city right about now... I hope between that a decent clay and the Klasse All in One I'll be all set.
