What do you want to clear coat?

Try the 3M scratch repair kit. It's only about $30 and works well to shine the clear coat. You use a regular drill and comes with sandpaper pads, 2 pads and a compound and polish.

Or you could go more expensive. Top grade procedures ftw!
You will need:
Rupes Polisher with cutting pad and polishing pad and finishing wax pad
High quality compound and polish and wax pads
800 grit, 1500 grit, 3,000 grit sand paper
Water for wet sanding

Procedure:
Wet sand with 800-3,000 sand grit paper

Follow with Rupes with cutting pad and compound
Then Rupes with polishing pad and polish
Then Rupes with wax pad and wax
