TIM,
Your paint is in very good condition as far as the amount of paint there... it could be polished using an orbital with a speed controller with a foam pad and some fine cut or start with swirl remover.
You are as long as you don't change the texture below the belt line you are good as far as NCRS

I ended up doing it to mine and yours is not NEAR as checked as mine is.
FWIW I was told that your car top flighted at the chapter level last spring southeast chapter.

You can through the NCRS get your judging sheets - they have a charge for the service however the National NCRS show is in French Lick Indiana next summer so your car should be eligible for Flight judging there without any other signoffs or pre-qualifications (any flight certification within the prior 3 years gets you in (if I am not mistaken).

Google "Eagle One surface prep mitt"


I took your advise and bought the mitt and spray - showed up yesterday, might be able to test it next weekend. Thanks

Tried it on my wife's daily driver - worked great. Can do the whole car in a matter of minutes.

Glad it worked out for you, I was convinced when I used it on a car with 40yr old lacquer paint that felt like sand paper when you ran your hand over it, 1/2hr later it felt like glass.
