Sand it just like you would a clear coat paint working up to a real fine grit like 1500. Best to use a da sander but you could do it by hand all depends on your arm. Then buff with rubbing compound untill you get the gloss you want with a buffer. I've done semi tanks and wheels this way. Expect to get kind of dirty and have black compound grit all over you.
