    Have you got access to a machine polisher? If so just wet and dry them, then buff after, cheaper.

    Vehicle : Insignia 1.8 SRi

    Trim : VX Line Red

    Engine : 1.8VVT

    Year : 2011

    I did mine on my last Vec. I just bought 2 or three different grades of Wet & Dry sandpaper (finest was 2500 I think) and then used some G3 Scratch Removal compound I had, followed by a couple of coats of Autoglym SRP. Bit of elbow-grease and they came up a treat.

    (By hand I should add, you can still get perfectly good results without a machine polisher.)
