    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.
