Swirl marks on black paint arghh!

Well I gotthe dreaded swirl marks in my vivid black paint, the scoot is a 2011 with 37k so not a trailer queen by a long shot , got some swirl marks on the tank and front fender mostly, I purchased this meguiars ultimate compound, seems to work well used it in a small area to try it out, but was wondering what else you guys have used will good results. I am sure phillyfan1 will chime in with some great advice as always and much appreciated brotha. Thanks .

When all else fails, hell there is always beer!

I use Meguiar"s as well, not the best product out there but I find it work very well. I do the full three part treatment Compound, polish, and wax and has done great on black paint for me. Not expensive at all. I use the drill pads and works great. Maybe try the compound before the polish, it has removed swirls for me. Best of luck.

Wash, 3M Perfect-it blue clay, 3M Perfect-It Buffing & Polishing Compound (1) (2) (3), Then a good 9H hardness Ceramic coating.

May be better ways, this works for me and is easy to clean.

Has silicones in it, fillers.1 step product. Doesn't fix anything, just hides it for a while.
Thats fine if thats what you want. To remove the swirls you need more than that.

Ive used coatings since they basically have been out. Like other detailers, this 9H hardness is very misleading and a marketing strategy. Look up what that test actually is and then how the coating manufactures have manipulated it. Dam shame actually.
some really good companies out there that make outstanding coatings that don't need to use this, and some don't.
Coatings are not scratch proof. Some detailers tend to overstate what they can do.
