If that's not an option, then your best bet is to take the car to a detailer and have them machine cut it, and then give it a good coating that will help protect it with a carnauba based wax. If you're intent on doing it yourself, then you'll need something like a "colour restoring" polish (which is actually a very mild cutting compound) to return the colour to something like it's original condition, and a carnauba wax for further protection. Follow the product manufactuer's directions, and be prepared to sweat :) -- Regards, Noddy.
