To remove the imperfections by hand would be a time consuming task. If you do not have access to the materials then you may want to take your car to a Professional Detailer. From the pictures provided it looks like your paint can be brought back to a blemish free surface
Thanks for the tips, and the links.
I have to correct you on a couple things, however, your advice is going to probably save my paint, and my wallet..
The corrections: I just bought the car, so, I didn't use any abrassive. The car, as seen in the last pic , has this problem in isolated areas only. Look at the last pic where you see the door/fender. The rest of the car looks like that fender...shiney and smooth. The 2 doors, and the trunk lid are the only real effected areas.
I am going to gather the products you suggested,and an orbital buffer, and probably have at it as soon as the weather breaks here. I will also think about getting a price quote from a collision shop around here. Any idea on what i should expect to pay to have 2 doors and a trunk lid polished/buffed...etc. ?
Thanks again. I have the confident feeling this can be saved....
