    ok I've got some areas I want to try and take care of, I think it calls for a claybar. I was wondering if that was the case and looking for tips claybaring for the first time.

    Here is spot one, Lower part of my bumper, kinda by License Plate:

    This is another spot, on the top of my bumper, above the licsense plate, under the DS tail light.

    judging from the pictures it looks like there are small pits in the clearcoat, most likely you'll have to buff that out

    Well the clay wouldn't hurt, but I doubt the clay alone would take care of the blemishes you just posted. Those look almost more like etching and/or oxidation. You'll need a good cleaner for that; of what's available on the "parts-store consumer" market right now, I'd hit those with some Meguiar's ScratchX after you clay.

    do I need a buffer for that? Does it have to be Rotary?

    You don't HAVE to, no. If you do it by hand though, be prepared to put in quite a bit of elbow grease.
