At this point I was pretty happy with how the car was starting to look for only owning it a couple weeks but a glaring issue was present that i had to deal with before... swirl marks.
Despite the car only having one previous owner and only coming up for 3 years old the paint was horribly contaminated and swirl marks present.
I set to work correcting this finally by first giving the car a pre-wash rinse, then a two bucket wash and rinse, to then follow up with iron and fallout remover, quick detailer and a clay bar to remove any contamination , following this I applied meguairs ultimate compound by hand to remove the heavy swirl marks that where present mostly on the roof and hood most likely present from previous owners love for the drive thru car wash, next i applied a coating of meguairs ultimate polish by hand to remove any fine swirl marks left that the compound didn't quite remove, finally i applied two separate coatings of meguairs ultimate liquid wax by hand to help protect the paint correction i had carried out. I then sealed the alloys with 3 thin separate coatings of poorboys wheel sealant to help repel brake dust and hopefully make cleaning the gloss black alloys a bit easier along with dressing the tyres in meguairs tyre endurance gel.
I then took the car out that night to see how much or little of the swirl marks i had removed and the overall paint condition had changed.
As you can see underneath the lights the car showed very minimal to no signs of swirl marks or contamination anymore and the paint just seamed to pop that little bit more now.
