Is there any wax that....
 
Is there any wax that actually covers minor swirl marks? Have tried many kinds all say they do but none work. Any ideas?

That would be called a 'glaze.' They only last a few days, a week at best.

Why not just remove them permanently?

How have you tried to do it?

Get a clay kit and clay the car, get some swirl remover it'll get rid of most of it then wax after that.

Took me forever to do my whole car, probably about 8-10 hours total but the paint looks good as new!

"some swirl remover"
For example?

Post some pictures of your paint under direct light, ie; the sun on one single spot of the paint.

you need something less abrasive than what you already tried then

That depends, does it not?

If what he used last time didn't touch the original swirl marks, he needs to use something more aggressive.

If what he used last time CAUSED the swirl marks, then the next step is a less aggressive polish or compound.

You generally need to polish out a scratch before buffing out the dullness created by the polishing. If you go right to buffing, you just have a shiny scratch.
