Preserve surface gloss while removing noticeable paint defects – it is possible with McKee's 37 Fast Compound.
Swirl removal doesn’t require large abrasive particles or an aggressive machine. The truth is that a product loaded with correctly milled, smaller abrasives will do the job with less damage to the paint, thereby shaving a couple of steps off your detailing process.
McKee's 37 Fast Compound is the most aggressive swirl remover in the McKee's 37 line, yet it’s not a heavy compound. Applied with your dual action or rotary polisher, this swirl remover is designed to correct paint flaws by gradual smoothing - not grinding down - the paint. Typically, compounds leave more problems than you started with and it takes several more steps to restore smoothness and gloss. McKee's 37 Fast Compound takes a less invasive approach to preserve the paint while it corrects the finish.
First, do no harm. McKee's 37 Fast Compound works on the principle of doing only what’s required to restore the damaged paint. Precisely milled abrasives – and a lot of them – blend away moderate to severe blemishes without removing significant layers of clear coat. Since clear coats are extremely thin, these Concentrated Micro Abrasives preserve as much of the paint as possible while removing only the defect.

Lose the swirls, keep the gloss. Even though McKee's 37 Fast Compound is less abrasive than a traditional compound, it removes the same imperfections: moderate to severe swirls, moderate scratches, oxidation, water spots, and overspray. The abrasives gradually diminish as they work, giving you a built-in finishing polish. The paint will experience little or no loss of surface gloss. In most cases, you will not need to use a separate finishing polish.
Keep it real. There are some scratches that can only be removed by a professional. If the scratch extends all the way to the color coat, removing the scratch requires removing the entire clear coat surrounding the scratch. Unless you intend to repaint the vehicle, this is an impractical solution for at-home detailers. McKee's 37 Fast Compound is formulated to remove blemishes without jeopardizing the paint system. It’s a real world approach to at-home paint care.

For the easiest application, mist the pad with McKee's 37 Polishing Pad Conditioner before applying the swirl remover. Pour several dime-sized drops of the product onto the pad and spread it onto a section of paint. Turn the polisher on and work the swirl remover into the paint until it begins to turn clear.

2001 Mazda Miata detailed by forum member Haris300. Swirls, water spots and scratches were removed by McKee's 37 Fast Compound.
