Hit it with the Heavy Duty compound first. That doesn't look to bad to me. High quality wool pad with a circular polisher. The compound will leave it a bit hazy but you should be able to tell if it is going to give you results you need.

If you have some bad areas 1000 wet sand in one direction then compound.

If you have some scratches 600 wet sand then 1000 then compound.

The 3M Super Duty compound will remove 1000 grit scratches so no need to wet sand finer than that.

I have done some nasty oxidized boats and only needed a couple of passes with the compound to bring them back.

Follow up with some Finesse It II polish then your favorite carnuba wax.
