removing fine swirls and lacquer scratches

Hey guys im at the final 'finishing' stage and have sanded the lacquer after two weeks curing time. Is sanded 600, 800,1200,1500,2000,2500g and then polished with Meguiars Ultimate Polish. its deep and wet looking but I still have swirl marks in the finish (I want a freaking mirror). How would you guys do it? Cheers, Stevie

If you havent got a buffing wheel and are doing it by hand, if your forearms are not on fire and not looking like popeye's then you havent buffed it enough
