If I'm wrong...how come you haven't been able to remove them by hand yet?
You can fill them, maybe...might even be able to dull them a little. Stop telling me that you can't catch your fingernail on them. I realize that...it's because they are micromarring/swirlmarks. It doesn't matter because they are still depressions in your clearcoat...they are scratches...just shallow ones.
The products that have the abrasiveness to remove the swirlmarks you hate so much are meant to break down as they are used and heated up in the polishing process...if you do not successfully break them down then you are doing nothing except adding more swirlmarks/micromarring.
Also...you may find yourself disappointed. If the guy you're going to used polishes with fillers the micromarring will come back. If you wash and dry the car with the wrong applicators/towels the micromarring will come back.
The act of detailing a car is an act of removing paint. Eventually ( I don't care if it takes 30 years) the paint will run out and will need replacing. It's the natural progression of life.
