BarryK Being a single stage paint after this amount of time it should not be wet sanded or you will shorten the life of the paint.

Best bet would be a polish job and there are more qualified people on here to tell you what to use for your buff job.

BarryK For someone to help you they are going to need to know if metallic or solid color. Also what could make a difference is brand and if hardener used? Start buffing an acrylic enamel with no activator and it will be repaint time unless it has set for 3-6 months. and if it is that old the UV's have already started floating and you should not buff except as last resort.
