Looks like the scratches/ swirls are too deep to be fixed by the product. A lot of OTC products like Mother's or Meguiar's merely fill the swirls in, so it looks like the swirls were 'removed' until the product washes off. Sometimes, the PC can't even fix deep swirls. For deep scratches, a rotary buffer (Makita 9227, DeWalt 849) is needed to even out the clearcoat, but a pro detailer needs to do this so it does not end up in a disaster.
