Question Swirls on paintwork.

Hi all.
Just joined up as i've just inherited a fiat punto (04 plate Mk 2 Tizziano red). After just washing the car at the local jet wash, i've noticed severe swirling on the bonnet. i've been scouring the forums and read a lot of helpful advice for cleaning the car etc but its all so overwhelming.
i was just wondering if people could recommend any products for getting rid of the swirls and also for cleaning the car as i want to make it look as good as it can as it also looks a little faded.

Cheers, Smithy

Re: Swirls on paintwork.

Scratch X for the bad ones and then Autoglym SRP for the not so bad ones. Your best bet is getting it corrected though as it takes alot of layers depending on the swirls to get rid of them buy hand. After you have polished it you will need to put a sealant/wax on top to protect the paintwork aswell.
