Default Rubbing Compound

I have some heavy oxidized paint on my 95 and just wonder if anybody has used a rubbing compound to cut through the years of oxidization, any home remedies?

Use a large polisher, preferably electric. HArbour freight has one in the 7" size. I use it all the time to cut through the black streaks on my trailer. I use Liquid Lustre or 303 Part one buffing compound. It worked great on my truck for removing paint specks. Also helped with some of the paint imperfections from my last painter who sucks as doing just that.
