Use Turtle wax cut n polish $13 from supercheap. An electric buffer and go sick on it. It will shine like the stars for a couple of months until you need to hit it again.

there in no way you can polish bascoat...
if you care about it that much the best way is to just respray the gaurds bonnet and boot..
if you polish bascaut it may become shiny but if yoiu keep doing it every few months eventully your going to burn the base coat and then you wont have any clear or colour
up to you mate
