    I have some man. I used the turtle wax back to black earlier this year but you can still see them
    Thinking of possibly taking the truck in for a cut and polish but if anyone has anything that's worked for them I'd give it a shot first

    You actually need proper equipment to fully remove swirls. If you have absolutely no experience probably paying to get it done would be best. It is fairly expensive.

    Here are some pics of my detailing I did on my truck this summer. Took a ton of time but the results were worth it.

    I use a Meguiars DA polisher too, w/ the Mirror Glaze #9. Then hit it w/ your favorite wax. You can't beat the DA it's great for rookies like me. I've heard Swirl X is good, then follow it w/ Gold Class or Tech Wax.

    I personally have horrible luck with detailing/polishing/washing.

    It never fails, everytime I do, it rains the next day
