What is the best product to get rid of the super fine spider web like feather scratches on the clearcoat?

Any kind of fine rubbing compound should work fine. Where are the scratch's and where did they come from?

The scratches came from regular washings. Super ultra fine ones. Not many but I am getting more and more.

Yeah, your gonna get surface sratches no matter what you do. Best defense is to make sure you use a good clean sponge or wash mit, and a clean shami to dry. A few good coats of wax always helps. I've seen people use wash brushes, which are killer to the car's finish. Also, some people use those blades to dry their cars, and if used incorrectly they can scratch also. Hope this helps.

I'd recommend 3M Swirl Mark Remover Part#39009 for dark finishes. You can apply it by hand and the results are remarkable.
Get it at:

If that does not work, you'll need a machine application with a fine cutting compound. Those compounds must be used gingerly or you'll have even more scratches.

I just received a Porter-Cable random orbit polisher to bring my Bullitt to better than new condition before finish waxing before winter.

Get it at: http://www.coastaltool.com/cgi-bin/SoftCart.exe/a/port/pr7424.htm?L+coastest+srwf0785ffbcc3bc+1002867189 and don't forget to get the 6" counterweight. You'll need it for the pads you get from:

I had just posted a topic similiar to this. Glad to know I am not the only one with the trouble. I was getting worried. And I'll let you know of my results.
