How do I remove handprints?

1972 Airstream Overlander

I got these stubborn hand prints and I canít get them off!

The exterior is the original clear coat.
I tried goo gone and that didnít work. Any ideas? I have no idea how the hand prints got there.

I'd start with a clay bar. It's designed to remove contaminants that regular washing cannot.
If that doesn't work a good polishing compound and elbow grease should.
Last resort is to use a dual-action buffer and a very light compound/pad combination.
