    If you want to do it right, get a clay bar to do the full car before you start trying to remove anything. I've got Carbon Flash and use Autoglym soft bar and quick detailer. For swirl removal you'll need a DA polisher to get decent results. If you're doing it by hand it will take you till you sell the car to get rid of them. I've been using Sounus Paint restore lately and got good results with a Megs Yellow pad! To seal it I use CG butter Wet Wax and top it of with Dodo Juice Purple Haze. All for darker coloured cars!!

    The black insignia is Carbon Flash as far as I am aware. So it will be the same colour as mine!

    Poorboys stuff is good quality but becareful what you buy and use it for. There polishes are not particularly good IMO but the Poorboys Blackhole is very good but doesn't give much protection if any at all! Another similar product is CG Glossworx Glaze! Gives a very deep shine but needs topped with a sealant or wax!
