Just an idea
I'm just taking a shot in the dark here but....
Do you think that the lines are from using clay before applying Zaino? Maybe the buffing removed the Zaino and revealed the lines that were always there but covered with Zaino. Buffers as you know spin in circular or orbital directions. When you clay you usally go in lines. Just a thought.Ferrari in 2007!!!

Zaino wont hide anything ... lines, swirls .. nothing.

Zaino won't hide
That's a good point. I'm still just wondering if the lines came from claying at some point and were just now noticed.
When i was on the Zaino bandwagon i found lots of areas of light marring on cars. I think in part because the Zaino has no cleaners that breakdown or dissolve any embeded dirt and in turn it gets rubbed into the paint.
Also even the mildest clay is at least slightly physically abrasive. I've gone back to using products with a small amount of non-abrasive light cleaners because the cars i do while often nice and expensive, are real world everyday cars and not show pieces.Ferrari in 2007!!!

Well fair point, but in this specific instance,
A) any clay marks would be more of a scratch,
B) they wouldn't be the holographic sort of thing that move in the sunlight, and
C) it was new paint, so hadn't been clayed,
D) if you do clay right, there is nothing left behind...if you have marks, you did it too hard.

Just as an update, I finally had some time last night and really looked at the holographic sort of lines.
Yep, they were micro swirls, alright. DAMN. You guys were right...apparently no Zaino left. I took 3M SMR by hand, then Z5, just to see if it would work, and it looked like it would. So I did the whole car with 3M SMR, which removed about 80% of the problem. I'm planning on a second coat, then clay to be safe, then the Z regimine starting of course with Dawn to strip off any oils left from the SMR.
Sh!t...really pissed have to go through all this...had 19 coats on prior to this mess starting.
In any case, thanks for your help...I suggest taping a sign to each window from the inside if your car goes into the shop.."No wash, no buff, no nothing".
