I use an orbital buffer on mine. To remove swirls you pretty much have to have one. I bought this one here a while back: http://properautocare.com/porcabpolac.html (Porter Cable 7424 Dual Action Polisher) I also buy my buffer pads from them as well. This buffer is safe to use. You cannot burn or damage your paint with it. Unless of course you drop it on your truck!
I wax mine about twice a month with Meguiar's NXT Tech wax. In between I use the Meguiar's NXT Tech Booster spray. If I get any bad swirl marks or anything I use Meguiar's #83 (For swirls) then maybe #7 and then some NXT. The #83 is very good. These are the tan looking bottles (pro) not the maroon ones you see at part stores.
For washing an drying I only use microfiber towels. I also use a sheepskin mitt to wash too. Another way you can do it is to buy a cheap mitt like from Wal-Mart or something and wash with it and then throw it away. For drying I use a waffle weave microfiber towel.

I buy my microfiber stuff here:http://www.pakshak.com
If you use something like the absorber it will leave scratches. You may not think it will but it will! They'll be fine scratches that you can't really see. And the more you have the less shine you will get. Also if you want to learn more here is a great place to start: http://www.autopia.org/index.php
