Ok, here'* a write up on removing swirl marks. This can be done by hand, but it will take a lot longer.

If your going to do it all, you wash, claybar, polish, glaze, wax.

And yes, you can do it by hand, but it will take a long time

Man, I once had a 92 Delta 88. I can tell you some things that you can possibly do to it. First off, would be to replace the factory stereo. As the sound systems in them kinda suck. Second is to gut the airbox. Any added power is welcome to those cars. Now, I know the 98 has a Series II in it so, they are already pretty peppy. Just to add a little more would be to just go ahead and gut the airbox. These cars look awesome with tinted windows! That is the first thing I did when I bought mine. I also replaced the headlights to those new Silverstars. They are bright as hell and you can see for a long ways without blinding oncoming traffic. Another thing I did to it was replace the exhaust. I dont know if yours has done this yet, but the exhaust WILL form a rattle. Mine did it. As well as my Bonneville and my Riviera. If you need more ideas please let us know! Good luck!

Yeah man my plan is to gutt the air box sooner or later as soon as I get a dremmil tool. Sorry for not being on in two days I do commercial tires and buisness has just been nuts. Also I don't know how dark I should go on my tints and I want to do exhuast but I've really had no ideas on style of tips style of muffler or any of that but I actually do have a really good sound system the stock one isn't bad in it cuase it has tweeter a 8 inch sub and bose speakers it looks like bose cuz it says bose on the side of my door I think it was the first year they did it with the bose but anyways I do need a cd player or something cuz it has the stock cassette and I'm trying to see if maybe I should even do a flip out tv dvd combo anyways I'm hittin the bed hard tonight so ill talk to u guys later give me any pics of exhuast or audio or tints let me know what'* up
