Oh good. I was afraid you'd tell me it was beyond hope for an amateur! The trunk lid (second pic above) just made me cringe with all the fine marks. This wasn't from me. My car was ED, and PCD pickup, so there's no telling how many times it was washed improperly.

OK, very good. I may have a couple of more spots that need a Orange + 203, but now I know to use Black + 106.

So, after I make good progress with Black + 106, what will I need before my LSP? Should I use 106 with a Blue pad? Or, how will I use the Power Lock, or Chemical Guys Jetseal 109? And last step is my Pete's 53 applied by hand? I also want to try a IPA wipedown, but I'm not sure.. does it go before Power Lock/Jetseal 109?
