‚ÄčThis vehicle came to me after my dad overheard someone at work say their car had spent a year outside in Florida and someone had told them the oxidation on the paint was going to be tough to remove. I got the chance to work on it for a few hours and try and make an improvement. 
Here's a side shot of the vehicle before in the sun, prior to washing. There is some swirling/marring, but nothing compared to the hood...
The hood scoop was severely oxidized, as well as the rest of the paint on the horizontal panels. We opted for a quick one-step polish approach to just bring back some life into the nearly 15 year old paint.
I tackled the trim while I was working as well, as it needed some attention.
Post wash. Here is the condition under my inspection light. Aside from the paint defects you can see there is zero gloss or luster to the paint due to the oxidation.
I was able to remove quite a bit of the oxidation and the lighter swirl marks.
Here is a side by side shot of the hood as I was working. The leftside has been polished, the right is untouched. 
The windows had some water spots that I polished out as well.
Here are a couple of shots of the trim restoration in progress. 
The paint wasn't perfect, but I was definitely able to breathe some life into it.
