Wow, lots of great feedback!
I am using all Meguiars products, from wash to wax.
I tried the cleaner (step 2) on the stone guards to remove the glue from the protective pastic, and that worked well with a bit of elbow grease. I notice though that there are now some streaks on those panels. Will probably have to redo them as per CanoeStream's post to get em right. Was wondering about those panels... didn't dawn on me that they were stainless!
I checked around yesterday, there are maybe about 9 scratches or so... but not too noticeable or deep. Heck on Tuesday we'll be heading out for about a week, and I'll likely rub the 'Winker' on some trees or something.
Worst I did was spin my teardrop trailer around in the driveway and just happened to scrap the back galley against the garage brick. You can imagine what kind of scratches bridge on aluminum makes
