My experience with single stage (nonclearcoated) paint jobs is that you need a pretty aggressive polish to bite thru the top layers of oxidation. The polish you used was just barely too mild to do the job right. Is the "cleaner/polish" you used #83 Dual Action Cleaner Polish? If so it starts as a fine cut but buffers quickly to a milder polish. You need something that will bite harder and longer. Consider trying 3M fine cut rubbing compound or go to Megs #1 Medium Cut Cleaner or even Meg's #84 Compound Power Cleaner followed by your cleaner/polish. That should do the trick.
