I didn’t go the magic eraser route. I doused the top in penetrol, then used some meguires ultimate compound to buff out the streaks and imperfections.
I slathered penetrol on the top to make sure the paint was soaking up plenty of it, but I hate buffing the excess penetrol with a cloth, which is why I used the buffer after. It looked really good and stayed that way until I sold the Jeep. The only thing I would do different is jump right to buffing. I waited a few days in between the jobs and the penetrol was really stiff. There were a couple of small streaks I couldn’t eliminate.
Before and after with Penetrol.

Gotcha, thanks. Ok, I'll keep this in mind when I get to the Penetrol step. For now I'm just wondering how much different to expect from the erasing step.
Also, just curious if the buffing process gave it a darker look, or if that's just a difference in the lighting between your second and third pics?
