Is it possible to do a satisfactory job by hand in these areas?
It is possible to hand polish those tight areas that a polisher can't get into, but, be prepared for lots of rubbing. In those hard to get at areas, follow the same cutting procedure you normally would, just make sure that you finish extremely fine, I like to finish areas like that with 3,000 Grit Trizac from 3M. Other company's make a 3,000 grit product for less money but in the long run, you save time and energy by stepping up to a quality product like 3M. Use the same polish and a micro fiber towel, lots of elbow grease and it'll come out like the rest of the vehicle.
