Jetsco Polish Info needed

Im trying to polish my 49 Liner to a mirror Finnish. Unfortunately most of the areas have sever pitting.
I do have the Jetsco grey, brown and pink bar as well as they abrasive brown paste. I also have the large sewn and loose pads..
Any suggestion here as to how to get the pitting out?

the picture shows what Iím dealing with.. and before you ask, i had the door frame out, to clean the edge and i will still remove the windows before i polish

I really doubt that you'll be able to get the pitting out. I've got plenty of scratches and pits that I've spent many hours working on. I've got it pretty shiny, but the marks are still there. You'd probably have to sand it to get the pits out, and I think you'd discover that that would be a huge mistake. Just keep in mind that you're working on a 65 year old trailer. It's going to have some character. Just go after it with the grey bar until it looks pretty good. Then hit it with the red bar. If it doesn't look right, go back to the grey. It's a slow, tedious, dirty, miserable process. Just keep chugging away.

Good luck!
