Meguiars ScratchX

Bought my truck not too long ago and the first thing I noticed was the ungodly amount of swirl marks on it. Not sure what the last guy did but it was definitely something not conducive to good paint. I picked up a bottle of ScratchX today and it did make a difference. However, I still noticed some swirl marks in the paint after I had gotten done. I guess some are just way deep down in there. I'm no detailing expert so I have no idea where to go from here. What do you guys/gals recommend?

all those "scratch removers" just get rid of light scratches...anything deeper, they'll lighted up a little, like hide it a little more. Got rid of alot of little scratches in my brother truck.

Definitely get a D/A polisher!!! It's well worth the cost in my opinion. I personally went with Meguires, but it's essentially the same as the Porter Cable.
