Deep Dimpling

I have some very very very bad dimpling on my door between the handle and the dead bolt. How can deep pitting or dimpling be removed? I ran the compounder over this area multiple times and its just not cutting it. Can I wet sand it? Will it help? If yes what grit?

Thanks.

Did you remove the clear coat 1st? Have to remove the clear coat and then follow with compounds.

The first pic is after compounding you can tell a very slight subtle difference.

I have some areas on mine with a similar appearance and was able to remove with multiple (>4 ) passes with Nuvite F7.
