to be honest you will be hard pushed to remove them by hand. to get good correction ideally you need a machine polisher like a Porter Cable or Megs Orbital if your a beginner or a rotary if youve had experience before.

a good claying after washing will help remove any hidden crap

you can then try some Poorboys SSR's which with a good applicator may get some results but there will still be traces left. They come in various numbers( ie SSR1) to go with the state of the marks, number 1 being the kindest.

also i have heard that Autoglym Super Resin polish has quite a lot of 'fillers' in it to help mask swirls and improve the visuals.
you may be able to add a Glaze before the final polish to help mask they more but as said, machining is the only way ultimately.

hope that helps :)

As above realy. the only way to get good correction ( abouve 80% ) would be by machine.

I find pug paint to be fairly soft. Why not get it detailed and then just look after it after that, or get someone with a machine polisher to lend you a hand
