Help needed

Post by Stefan0909 »

So my bday was just over a week ago. My girlfriend thought she would spoil me and bought me a small but nice package.

Meguiar's wash and wax kit. Costed about R 700 bucks for the kit and with it she bought Scratch X 2.0

Now I have noticed that there is swirls on the car, will these products remove them with the fine scratches or do I need another product?

She bought me a value pack of 5 MF clothes as well.

Each colour is for wiping or cleaning another part of the car.

Any advise would be appreciated Image

If you're looking for a showroom finish and a long-lasting wax or LSP (last step product), there are much better products to polish and protect your paint with. That said, Meguiar's is easy to apply and is *not bad*.

For absolute swirl removal, however, I suggest you book your car in for a proper detail. These off-the-shelf, mass marketed products aren't terrible, but you will need a professional detail to safely correct and protect your paint.

It's not how you stand by your car; it's how you scrape your car. You better learn that.

Do you know of any detailers close to the Vaal?

Not off the top of my head, no. But I think you would do well to research whoever you decide to get a quote from, and if you're not happy with their past work, spend a little extra and go to someone who knows what they're doing, like GaVeN from SeventyFour-Four, or deranged_9n3 from Creative Car Detailing.

Do you have a DA polishing mashine?
That would also help in getting rid of the swirls in combination with the products you have. But can be done by hand also.
