Are you trying to restore the paint on the bonnet?
Any photos of how bad the oxidisation is?
There are many products out there to suit different applications/needs

i dont have access to a camera atm, i would take photos on my phone but my mobile phone pics are very poor.
im not trying to restore the paint, i just want to clear off the oxidisation.

care to lead me in the right direction andy, in regards to places these products can be purchased? (autobarn and supercheap etc are useless)

www.waxit.com.au would be a good start

I use Poorboys at home for polishing/waxing/sealing

Use an RO buffer with a Yellow edge pad (Heavy Cutting) with Menzerna Powergloss (POS34A) then do a second past with Blue edge pad (Polishing) with Menzerna Final Finish (PO85RD) Hi-Gloss

or

If the oxidiation is not that bad then use a Green edge pad(Light Cutting) with Menzerna Intensive Polish (PO91L) then do a second pass with a White edge pad (Finishing) with Menzerna Final Finish (PO85RD) Hi-Gloss

There is a small dent above the bar join. I suspect most of the scrub will polish out?

I wouldn't start with the yellow cutting pad. I think it's too aggressive. Start with something more moderate, and then move up to something more aggressive if it doesn't work. You'd do less damage that way.

yeah i think it would be safer to start with the green pad

Yeah the yellow is pretty harsh/course...

x2 to start on the green pad or something a little lighter
