Worst swirl marks ever!

OK, lets hear some good UNBIASED ideas on removing swirl marks from a black finish....I've been researching for an hour and all I can find is people trying to sell their products. I need real life experienced ideas! My Jeep is covered in the worst swirl marks ever, I think my ex-wife dried it with 80 grit sandpaper. Thanks dudes

find a product by Meguires called "Liquid Ebony". When I worked in body shops many years ago, we used it for all the dark colored , clearcoat finishes. Black by its nature will show every defect, smear, and swirl.

What kind of tools do you have to work with? How much effort are you willing to put into it? If you have a DS random orbital buffer and some good pads you can probably buff most of them out, with the right polishes. If you really just want a quick fix, then probably the Meg's Liquid ebony would be your cheapest/easiest route... Meg's makes good stuff. Wash it with Dawn, clay bar it and then proceed with your swirl removal process... Meg's 3 step is good too, works well on black, but it ain't easy.... Although, Jeeps don't have that much paint, so it wouldn't be too bad.
