Toth paste on a rag and a brisk rub does a terrific job with minimum ill effects. Or use a buffer if you wish.

If doing cut and polish, with paint as described could be a step too far.
Why not try just a clay and polish.Use a polymer polish needs no hard rubbing and is great.
Clay works by vertually pulling out grime etc without cutting into the paint. Use a mild clay.

The internet told me to do it. Of course I had to get some Hellas! And here you can see stage 1 of my custom grill.

Well I got bored of the car looking so stock so picked up a VRX wing, sideskirts and front pods. Also painted the front end and put on some chrome trim like a ralliart!

One of the first things I added to my CJ (almost 5 years ago) was yellow Hella's look great and louder than the stock horn.

Well, hit a roo last weekend. Was doing 110km, saw it coming so braked, didn't swerve or anything. Hit it at about 80kmh. Was a lot less damage than I thought there would be! Was a decent sized roo too! Have fixed most of the damage, just need a new grill as it shattered.

Very lucky indeed that the airbags didn't deploy.

Yeah very lucky.

The closes I came was an Emu whipping it bum on my CJ last year, slowed from 110 to 30 but I was lucky I could see him on the side of the road so was ready to jump on the brakes.
