Just wanted to ask if you get them when you use a rotary buffer with a fine cut wax? The last time I buffed my car out I noticed there were swirl marks, but once I applied the wax then they were gone. Anyone else experience the same? Or what is the best way to prevent them? I was also using a 100% wool pad as well and made sure it was cool and free of any debris...

Never, ever use a wool pad, they are brutal on paint! Toss it! Only use terry-cloth or foam.

Yes, wax can hide swirl marks pretty good.

If you feel like it, get some 3M 39009 swirl remover for dark cars, follow the instructions to the letter, and you'll get rid of the swirl marks for good with an orbital buffer.
