Van, funny you should mention that Jet Black is a "soft" paint. I noticed that fact within a couple washes of my car. This is my 3rd black car and have some pretty solid washing and maintenance practices (much of it picked up from reading the detailer's domain posts and site) and my paint still has very fine swirl marks in it. I'll probably be either investing in an orbital buffer myself or taking the car in to get detailed every other year or so. I have thus far been terrified of doing it myself for fear of creating the dreaded half moon swirls from improper technique.
