You must polish the paint in order to remove swirls. One solution if polishing is not an option is applying a glaze before applying a sealant/wax as a temporary solution by filling in the swirls.

If you do choose to polish, has great tutorials on proper detailing techniques. However if you are a bit intimidated by the process, I suggest finding a reputable detailer.
+1 on Detailed Image. They answered all my questions and turned me on to the products pictured. I have used many in my life....these are simply the best I have ever used.
