First of all, clay barring does nothing to get rid of swirl marks. The only thing that claying does is clean the paint of impurities. It is an extremely important step if your paint is dirty in order to achieve a very deep shine once you wax the car. If you want to get rid of swirl marks, you need to get yourself a PC-7424 and the right compounds to remove the swirls. Take a look at these videos:



The PC is a must have in paint correction. Used correctly along with the right compounds, you can be swirl free in no time. Here's another thread that shows the power of a orbital polisher like the PC and the right compounds.

P.S. Your avatar is a riot!

Glaze is used to mask the problem you have. I don't do shortcuts, I take care of the problem. Yes, there are other products out there that you can use but after seeing the results that I achieved with the Adam's product, why use something else? I only use professional grade stuff because the stuff you find in Pep Boys or Auto Zone is for pretenders. Check out the Adam's Polishes forums. There is so much that you can learn from that site about this stuff. You'll kick yourself later after you figure out how much you were doing wrong, which created all the swirls to begin with.
