95 SLE helped me with a bunch...but I'm not 100% sure what we used with the random orbital buffer...it was a cleaning/polish.

If you do not have a random orbital buffer Scratch X is a great product.

Scratch X is for use by hand only probuct. You really need to work the product with a lot of hand pressure and may need to do 3 to 4 applications to remove the scratch.

I have found that it works well w/o a lot of preasure too. But it is an abrassive so the more preasure you put/more times you go over the spot, the more it should remove.

Just remember that it is an abrassive and to remove scratches it is also removing a little clear coat.
