Can't beat the shine you get when you cut the swirls out

I'm a novice and feel more comfortable with the DA over the rotary.

Soo much easier to damage with the rotary, get a scrap panel to test on first

Plus use something that isn't too harsh, I cut back with menzerna power finish which is a 2000 grit, but it breaks down as you use it so can't really over do it and gets rid of lost swirls, just not the deep scratches.
