Restoring Oxidised & Faded Paint


The paint on my 65 1500S notch is pretty oxidised/faded. I've T-cut an area and the shine comes back, but I was wondering whats the best method for refreshing oxidised paint. I have half a tin of Farecla G3, should I be using this with an electric buffing machine, and following up with polish? The bit I T-cut a few months ago has oxidised again, so I think I probably need to wax it afterwards.

Sorry, I'm not good with paintwork, just want to refresh this little notch, as its rust free and in OG paint.

Thanks

Steve
