    Now that the weather is starting to get a little warmer, I'm starting to focus on cleaning my truck. I noticed that I have some swirls in the clear coat and wonder what others have used to remove these marks. There are a ton of products available out there, but I'd like to hear what others have used that have worked.

    I use Turtle Wax Al. It has a little bit of coarse compound in it that seems to take out the minor scratches & imperfections. It's a lot less time consuming than going the whole rubbing compound route, & then having to re-wax it. The omni directional buffer keeps from putting the swirl marks & scratches back in.

    Mike: Thanks. I'm not a big fan of the polishers, but I might make an exception for this. Do you use other Adam's products? I may purchase a kit.

    Thanks Mike that helps. I'll check out Adam's kits and figure out what I need. I like cleaning the truck because it looks good when clean. I just wish I had more time for it.

    No polisher=no removing swirls. Say what you want but you need no less than a random orbital and the sears 10" is not what I'm talking about. Those will actually make you clearcoat worse.

    Listen to 99heartbeat. The porter cable is a great machine that WILL NOT damage your finish. Adam's is good stuff too!

    Thanks, good to know. I trust Mike, even if he is a Giants fan. :)
    I've used a polisher before that didn't do squat. I don't remember the brand, but it wasn't PC.

    Yes I use both the paste & the liquid. The paste takes the swirls out faster with the buffer cuz it seems to have a little more polishing compound in it, but the liquid works as well for real fine scratches.

    Thanks stephan. I use other TW products and they work well. I guess I need to get a buffer. Does anyone make a polishing pad that attaches to my drill?
