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.

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.
