here are few more updated photos...as you can tell in one of the photos thats the over spray doesnt want to buff out of the paint in places but the majority of the over spray is gone and is only noticable by touch or having your nose from 5-6 inches away,, i will come back to the over spray issue after all the waxes and outher chemical start to soften the clear coat

Try a clay bar kit on that paint. For the same amount of 'elbow grease' you're throwing at it now, you'll be surprised how it looks when you're done!

Barnyard ; thanks for the sugestion BUT we have worn out Zaino #18 clay bar the fisrt day.. after the wash cloth was sticking to the truck we went stright to the clay bar, in places the clay would eat away and streak the paint.
