Nu-finish scratch doctor works o.k. but you may need an orbital buffer to get the some of the other scratches out unless you want to use alot of elbow grease. B

You need a polish that removes fine scratches/swirls. Wax does not remove scratches. I've used 2001 polish (made by Turtle wax) with decent results. You can also try Scratch X. Using an orbital buffer helps considerably.

Search the Detailing and Car Care Forum above. Many good solutions are available there.

Meguiar's ScratchX with at least 3 applications should do the trick, granted that you use plenty of elbo grease. You WILL get a work out using this product, but it works great, especailly if you are working by hand.

If you have a Duel-Action Polisher (Electric Buffer), I'd recommend Meguiar's M80, the "Speed Glaze". If that doesn't do the trick, up it to Meguiar's M83, the "Duel-Action Polish/Cleaner". I've used both products on my C class and I find that the M83 is needed to remove all the scratches and swirl marks. But I don't know how deep your scratches are, so you might be able to get away with M80 or ScratchX.

But as Sergio said, wax won't remove scratches. Any wax that says it does probably just "fills" the scratches, but doesn't actually remove them.
