How often is good to wax my Sandstorm? i bought it in May 08 and wash it every two weeks. do those swirls that are around the paint come off when buffed? i hate taking it in for washing i feel like the machine leaves those swirls, even thought its 100% hand wash. i go to a place down my house that is totally 100% buckets and hoses only. thanks

Use Safe Cut to remove the swirl....

Im very OCD with my cars so ...
First wash it with a good soap and wax it with "safe cut" to remove the swirl and wax it with "super glaze" to get that shine and smoothed feeling on your paint..... rub it out dont let it dry.

You get the swirl marks if the towels or cloths used to clean and dry the FJ are dirty or are themselves causing the scratchs. Use good quality microfiber towels and you'll reduce the swirl marks. As citytrooper said, there are quality swirl removing products that you can use. Also, you might want to consider using a clay bar prior to polishing/waxing to remove impurities from the paint.

I used to be incredibly anal with paint care when I owned an s2000. With the FJ, once I got my first pinstripping, that went away. ;D

stay away from car washes of any sort! Invest about 50$ worth into decent quality supplies and your trucks paint will love you for it.
