Polishing trim and tight areas?

Just finished my first 40 hours polishing my '80 Caravelle. What can be used to polish the " hard to get areas". I have a 4 inch Sewn cotton wheel I run on my drill, but still can't get some areas? Help!!! Don in Idaho

I've been using an old toothbrush with cotton cloth over it - by hand. Working but a lot of work.

I am using a dremel with a polishing kit on window frames and around emblems. I removed the trim to make it easier on the body panel polishing and will use a bench polisher to run the trim through before reinstalling.
