Default Saab Bodywork / Paint

can anyone recommend good paint restorers for my Saab ? - its a 1992 900SE in arctic white, but it has quite a few marks on the body work which I would like to get rid of and get back to the original shine.

The marks are all quite small (about an inch long and look as though they have been made by rubber or something similar) - they do not come off with just cleaning.

Maybe a wax specifically for white cars ? - does such a thing exist ?

many thanks

try 3m hand polish compound, if not try 3m rubbing compound.

The rubbing compound has a bit more cutting action than the hand polish.
cleaning it really well and clay baring it might help as well.

some of the paint gurues should be able to tell a little better as they have all helped me a great deal in the past.
Saabs: If it ain't broke, meddle with it more.
