[DML] Re: What's on my stainless?

Thanks to all for the replies; it is truly appreciated!

I had considered regraining the panels, but to be honest, I'm most 
hesitant to do so.  Mainly because I have minimal skill with 
regraining.  I "buffed" a scratch out of my front left fender, and the 
result was most satisfactory.  However, I had something to brace myself 
on (that being the edge of the car) to insure I was going in a 
perfectly straight line.  I do not have this advantage with my hood 
(which is where most of the waterspots are visible).

I guess I'm willing to attempt it, but I have some questions first.

1) If you regrain only one portion of the panel, does it show?  i.e. do 
you have to regrain the entire hood evenly?

2) What is the proper procedure of regraining?  Do you move only in one 
direction, or can you go back and forth?

3) Is there any kind of cleaner I should spray on the hood before 
regraining?  Or can this be done "dry"?

4) What tips/tricks are there to insure that you're going in perfect 
harmony with the existing grain?

5) Is there anything a newbie should be aware of before undertaking 
this project?  Please keep in mind that I have minimal technical 
experience; make no assumptions of knowlege on my part.  Basically, 
talk to me like I'm a twelve year old (never thought I'd hear myself 
say that! Haha)

Thanks a bunch in advance, guys.  I appreciate it.
