I was just looking at my car and it's completely covered in light scratches and swirl marks (like the last owner didn't give a crap)
So the scratch removers that are available to me are NUfinish, Mothers, Turtle Wax.

So, what's the best?

Your whole car is probably filled with swirl marks, only way is to get it polished which can be expensive but for the above options ...mothers is always the best followed by turtle wax.

Could I see before/after pics of the scratches you cleaned up? And what product did you end up using? I have a few scratches on my car and I've been wanting to take care of these.

I've tried the NuFinish Scratch doctor, but it's pretty much useless. I'm not going to give up though.....

Try using a clay bar to get all the oxidization off, then use a good rubbing compound. Follow that up with a good wax, preferable a nano wax. That was what we used to use at the dealership I detailed cars for in college. It didn't take them completely away, but certainly helped to make them less noticeable. Meguiars has a decent product out called Ultimate Compound. Haven't used it myself, but I've heard decent reviews of it.

Tricia, that is going to take lots of work. It looks like the previous owner set heavy boxes on top then just dragged them off. Meguiars makes a DA correction system that works quite well (at least it does for me). You can find it at autogeek.net (http://www.autogeek.net/meguiars-da-microfiber-system.html). But I think that for what I've seen, you need the heavy guns. I'd recommend reading through Autogeeks forum. There is tons of good info there, plus you can ask questions and show them your pics of the scratches.

Yea with those scratches you'll definitely need a da. Working by hand would be way too hard and way too long.

No paint job needed. A good detailer with a rotary buffer will make it look like a brand new paint job.
