    i used the meguir's ultimate compound liquid it restored the color and took out those spider web looking scratches, then used the NXT generation wax by them and it came out awesome, i used the mothers power paintball it works great and it only took maybe an hr or 2 to do

    Turtle wax ice synthetic spray wax works good for keeping that shine.Just go around and spray and wipe. After a good hand waxing.
    And you can use it on the windows like rain-x,plus it dont turn you trim white. Several uses per bottle.

    I've had very good luck with "3M Fill & Glaze" on light "swirls". It is a very light compound, but sure leaves a great finish. Good luck!

    I'd recommend you clay the paint, then polish, then wax.
    Also got to autogeek and ask these questions there on their forums. Also read product reviews at detailing websites like autogeek and others. They have product reviews from detailers and you will narrow down which product you want to try.
    I can't recommend a good polish for swirl marks as I don't allow my paint to get them. But the folks at autogeek will get you a good polish to lift those swirl marks as best as can be attained. Make sure you get one that does what you want. ie a QUALITY Polish.
    Good Luck.
