Hazing and swirl marks from buffer
Recently I had some scratches on my vehicle due to an incident at a carwash. They set me up with a body shop who wet sanded the scratches and probably used some type of compound. They must have done a quick job because now I can see what looks like swirl marks im guessing from a buffer they used and some hazing in the areas where they wet sanded. I don't really want to bring it back to them. Is there anything I can do myself to remove these? Would a clay bar work?

I tried to take some pics with my phone but it was hard to see them I'm going to try with my camera if the weather will cooperate.

take it back. they can take them out they just rushed as most people dont care.

i bet if you go back they will fix it.

or go to a different detailer and pay. or spend 500 bux on the proper supplies to do it yourself/

Clay bar will not remove scratches. You might want to try some Meguiar's Scratch X
Depending how big the area is, it will take some work by hand.

How do I get small scratches out of my headlight lenses? On a 2013 Trailhawk. Thanks for any help

I would use a compound like swirl x or scratch x and than wax after

In sorry bud, I would definitely make them fix that asap

Yea I went back the guy pretty much didn't want to do anything since he "fixed" the scratches at no charge for the car wash. He said he was doing them a favor. He gave he some stuff to put on it but didn't say what it was. He said it would get the swirl marks out just wipe and then wipe off. It looked like it worked a little in some spots but it rain the day after haven't really had any good weather to try it again. I might have to try the Macquires scratch x I guess.

Unfortunately you have a dark colored vehicle so this stuff will be more noticeable. The more you wash it the more small swirls your going to get in it. What those pictures look likes needs a buffer like a Porter Cable, a polishing pad, and some Meguires M205.
