Needless to say, when I saw the result, I was speechless. There was absolutely no shine and the depth of the swirl marks was unbelievable.
Rather than get upset, I grabbed my trusted spray bottle of Meguier's Detail Spray and a new clean mf towel and went to work. Three really wet applications and forty-five minutes later the paint looked like it had just come out of the the assembly plant paint shop. The depth of shine and color really looked gorgeous again.
So, before you invest a lot of time, effort and money, you may want to try the simple fix first.
