I agree I dont see where the gel coat is missing, I just think its baked in the sun and hidden because of oxidation. Do a search on here on some threads and you will find the information you need. Basically need the following....

-automotive grade circular buffer not the random orbital style
-good buffing compound to cut through the oxidation *clean the wool pad often*
-good polishing compound like finesse II
-good finishing compound/wax of your choice.

Start small get a feel for it and go easy on any decals, unless you are planning on replacing them anyway, they are pretty tough.
