I took my jeep to one of those coin operated self washers. The one with the "FOAMING BRUSH". I think is made of horse hair or something. anyways. I know tons of people wash their vehicles there, like big muddy trucks and what not. Im figuring that use that horse hair brush that foams to wash their muddy trucks and grit and debris gets stuck in the brush. Well, i go wash my jeep one day and when i get home, i noticed that i have lines all in over my jeep from where i used that foam brush. It looks horrible in the sun. its not like they are scratches or anything.
Is there a wax, or some decent polish that will bring back the shine?
If in FIRST you dont succeed, hit SECOND and gas it!
I use this Armorall Wash And Wax with carnauba wax. After I get done washing it up and drying it, use a Polishing Mit to really make it shine.
Only reason I go to those Self Car wash's is to use their vacuum and power wash the mud off the bottom of my jeep/fenders. Then I go home and give it a nice soapy rub down. Speaking of, its about time to get the mud off her from the last trail ride.
After this last ride, iv really learned to deal with scratches but I still like to have it shine when I drive around town!

If you go to an auto parts store and get a clay bar to use first before washing your Jeep it will remove scratches and impurities from the paint. If it's too bad you may need to use a polishing compound then the clay bar. You will be amazed at the results. It will look like new paint if it's not marred too badly.
...if you really worry about that sort of thing.

Get their rotary buffer and some real polishing compound (not stuff from autozone) and be careful you can burn the paint right off if you dont knwo what you are doing. I used to assemble skylines and other JDM cars that were bought in Japan and shipped here in pieces. We could make a car with 100k miles look brand new with just a few days working the buffer.
It wasnt on the jeep it was on my miata.. it says its suppose to clean up everything including a thin layer of the clear coat.. my front bumper was grayish because of crap from the exhaust of other cars and also uv rays.... it said its suppose to clean that up.. it didnt do anything..
