Sanding, compounding and polishing are one process.
I would recommend using the best sanding papers you can obtain and finish out at least 2000 grit. Higher if you can get it. My personal preference is to machine dampsand but you can hand sand too..
Then have a high quality wool cutting pad and a rotary buffer and a good compound ready to cut out your sanding marks. Machine polish with foam pads and then stop until around 30 days pass.
Then seal the paint with a car wax, synthetic paint sealant or paint coating.
