Sorry, I did not take any pics of the shadow line. As you can imagine, there were plenty of fine scratches. The polishing took car of them all. I might be more happy about the results to the shadowline, because those were easy to notice in any light. Now it looks perfect.

Not sure about the chips. You'll probably get the best results with very careful application of the touch up paint. Then the compounding will smooth out the worst of the rough spots.

If you have a ton of chips and bug damage, a respray may be easier. Compounding seems best for swirls, maybe the pros can weigh in as well.
