If you're working by hand, ssr2. If by machine, I'd go ssr2.5. Follow up w/ ssr1. Then top w/ a sealant/wax/glaze, etc. Personal favorite on black for me is red moose glaze underneath nattys blue paste wax. :)

Don't be afraid of using a buffer, I rememver when I was years ago but they're a fun tool to work with :D

Keep in mind that working products by hand takes time, lots of it at that. You can only remove so much when working by hand but with a couple of applications of each product it should do a fine job of cleaning it up. And with a nice glaze/sealant/wax combo you'll be able to hide some of the remaining swirls as well. Proper prep work (a thorough claying and anything else it might need...) makes a HUGE difference in the way the products work IMO
