Question Buffing out surface stratches in GSXR paint clear coat??

I bought a GSXR 600 and waxed it with a microfiber cloth. I have roughly two spots where the clear coat has some "scuffs" or "Swirls" in the clear coat on the gas tank. It can really only be seen if it is shined perfectly in the sunlight where it looks a bit dull and the rest of the tank looks shiny. Can anyone help me with out this or give me some info on the tools I should buy and how to take as much out of the scuffs without fucking up the paint? Anybody do this professionally? Let me know as it is bugging the hell outta me on this new bike... Thanks.

It might be something that could come out by hand with some Meguiars ScratchX. It can be picked up at most auto parts stores.
If not pm Nick (n737nc) and Im sure he can polish it out for you.

I don't know where you're located. But if you're semi close to me(or where I travel), I can meet up with you and give you some recomendations on what to use and how to use it. If you don't feel that you can handle the job yourself, then I'd be happy to give you a quote for me to do it for you.

Give me a call
