Sorry to hear that, it is not a good I would wish on my worst enemy. With yours being white, it may not be as bad as mine. I can still see where the graphics were, but have come to the conclusion, that I just have to live with it.
Graphics come off with a heat gun, the reflective (chrome) ones I would leave on, if at all possible?
I tried a lot of different approaches, in the end a Harbor Freight 6" dual action polisher did as good a job, as my big Milwaukee with a wool pad.
Use the "pink" HF foam pad, with some rubbing compound and the "black" HF pad to apply the wax.
Use a petroleum based wax, not synthetic. The gel coat seems to "soak" it up? Sounds weird, I know.
