Swirls in VentureShield

I have VentureShield on my Sapphire Black on the full hood, fenders and bumper that were installed professionally. The car is 12 months old. The paint was swirl-free when the film was installed. The car is a DD and well maintained with Zaino.

The film has developed a fair amount of swirls in the film on the hood.

Any thoughts for "film correction?"

It can be corrected just like paint, but you just use the least aggressive pad/polish and be sure to tape up all edges.

So my PC and some SIP would be good? Or would power finish be a better choice?

Do you have anything lighter like 106FA or PO85RD? I would start off with one of those lighter polishes and a grey pad, and then work your way up to Power Finish and a white pad if necessary. I don't like to use anything more aggressive than that...
