It just looks dull? If that is all it is, then try some Hand Glaze. You can use 3M hand glaze or Meguires #7 glaze.

If it appears "chaffed" then you should try a 3 stage buffing process.

1st buff w/ 1200 grit compound and a wool pad. Then wipe off with cloth baby diaper
2nd buff w/ 1500 grit compound and a wool pad. Then wipe off with cloth baby diaper
3rd buff w/ 2000 grit compound and a foam pad. Then wipe off with a micro fiber cloth

When this is complete, use a yellow wax to finsh it off, or you can take it to your local paint/body shop and have them do it.

The whole process should only take about 30-45 mins to complete.

Please note that you should keep your pad very moist. If it gets dry, it could remove what is left of the clear coat by process of over heating.
