I'm not a professional by an standard, so I really don't want to try and answer this question and then screw you over or get your hopes up. The claybar is actually an abrasive that actually "peels" off sediments and contaminates in your clear coat as you run the claybar over the paint. It depends on how bad you areas of oxidation are...obvioiusly if its to the point where you don't have anymore clearcoat, then your best option is going down to the local body shop and getting a paint estimate. If its not too bad, then I would definately spend the $ 15 to go buy the clay bar kit (I found mine at Advanced Auto Parts, but I have also seen them at Wal-Mart). Another thing you might want to try to rid yourself of oxidation is to go out and purchase either a paint cleaner wax, or better yet, a nice polish. These will help restore your paint (personally, I'd go with polish over a high grit prewax cleaner substance)...it may not remove it all so the paint looks like new, but if you claybar, polish and then put a nice coat of quality wax over that area, then I think you will be satisfied.
Good Luck.
