This is really easy. Follow the rules on the tca chart. There is no controller helping you but self report position, watch altitude and fly south. If you read the chart, they want you on a SMO radial, but the west and east boundaries are pretty wide.
If there is a stadium TFR active, watch the east boundary and altitude.
I prefer to fly the miniroute northbound and southbound at 2500 feet If you use the mini route, you will be talking to LAX tower and wont have to worry about TFRs since you will be legal to enter. With the miniroute, you will first need to talk to Santa Monica tower southbound, of Hawthorne tower northbound.
The Special Flight Rules area does not need any conversations with Hawthorne, LAX, or Torrance tower; just follow the instructions.
Both are easy peesey, dont fear the reaper.
