    .....then I was left with a few rough lines. I wet sanded them with 1500 grit and now they're smooth. Except its foggy now, how car I get it to shine again? Buff it? Wax it? I have wax and I can get a buffer.

    Buff it out with polishing compound. No need for a polisher, just 100% cotton terry cloth towels and lots of elbow grease. Follow the directions and you'll be back in business. Of course, the polisher does make quick work of it.

    Great, thanks guys.

    Just for now I put some wax over the spots and it helped but it didn't fix it.
