Best Wax to remove light swirls by hand

I'm asking this question for the paint Guru's... (Roadhawg and others)..... what is the best wax to use when waxing by hand but will still remove light swirls? I have Big Blue Pearl paint but when it's in the sun I can see some light swirls in the paint... I've only cleaned the bike by hand and only use micro fiber cloth's.....

Next question how long do you have to wait to wax new paint... I just had the hog tunes lids painted....

I'm not a pro but when I got my last bike painted the painter said at least 30 days so it could gas out

I have seen this kit do amazing things. I have it and won't use anything else on my Sled.

Try 3M Imperial Hand Glaze. Be sure the surface is clean, cool and not in direct sun. May take a few applications but it will remove them. Use small amounts.

I like using Kit Scratch 0ut. I've used it on about everything from black paint to windshields with positive results.

+1. Also, I use it with a new microfiber cloth. That will usually prevent you from adding new scratches and swirls.

Wax won't remove scratches

Maguires #105 will safely remove swirls and light scratches and the #205 is a nice finer polish to finish it off with, it makes black look fantastic!
