What do you guys think of #9 Swirl Remover does it work well? I am sure it has its limits but I have never used it and I might give it a try on a vehicle. Does it do 2 steps clean and polish?

Hey GB387!

I've used the #9 with my PC and a 8006 pad several times. Even though it is rated a 3 on the agressive scale I do not think it is a strong as the #82 Swirl Free Polish. It does do a great job of removing very light surface scratches and contains A LOT of polishing oils. I will usually go right from #9 to my sealant stage. I think if you have some very fine swirls and the paint is in otherwise great condition that it is an excellent product that cuts out the need for a polishing stage.

Attached is a pic of one of my customers cars that I use #9 followed by Gold Class wax on once a month....this month I'm going to use NXT on it.

how is # 9 to apply and remove?

It's been a while since I used #9. I agree, mostly polish. You can use it by hand, but it does a much better job by machine. It's a bit of work to get off, but as long as your using a microfiber it isn't so bad.

The main reason people tend to think #9 is hard to remove is because they leave it on too long or work it in until it dries out. It is meant to be wiped off while it is still wet.

It works best if you pick a 2x2 section work it in but, don't let it completely dry and then wipe it off. Move on to the next section and repeat.

Thanks, nice looking L you have! Have you seen the new 5.4 aluminum block by Sean Hyland? You can order it with a 3.75" bore which works out to 6.0L.
