1000 grit can be quite difficult to remove with a foam pad. And I'd wager that if you bend down and look up at the side panels, you'll see some sanding scratches still there as well.
I'd give it another go with the 2000-3000 trizac, to remove the remaining 1000 grit scratches.
Then polish it up.
But it's lookin' good so far.

Yep, just backtrack until you are rid of the crosshatching but keep the rule #1 in mind= use the least agressive method that works. 1000 grit is coarser than I like to go, for this reason. As time goes by, you'll likely notice more of those faint marks re-appearing, but you'll know how to handle it. The bird looks good glossy, don't it?
