Yes it will do wonders.
If your doing it by hand this is the best way to go:
Step 1 wash and dry section throughly with soap and water to ensure all wax is removed.
Step 2: Rubbing Compound- Meguiars and Trutle wax both make it.
Turtle Wax T-230A looks like it's pretty good stuff.
-> As soon as you rub it in and it breaks down let it dry a minute or two and come back and remove. Microfiber will work to remove it.
Step 3: Polish ( I use 357 magnum from Hi-temp) found at topoftheline.com; However, Meguiars will work fine the stuff that looks is the Meguiar's G17216 Ultimate Compound. Morthers Polishes are also really good.
-> Apply polish working in it real good and apply evenly.
Step 4: Wax using your choice. I'd go with Meguiars or Mothers waxes at this point. (I personally use Hi-temp Bhama Mamma found at topoftheline.com)
-> Remember to take the wax off using soft cotton baby diapers work well for this. You can find them at WalMart in the autosection.
Step5:Enjoy your car with fewer scratches. Or clean up my least favortie part.
