Any of you out there tried it before? (or any of our sponsors provide this service?)

After doing a 2 stage polish 2 weeks ago, I've noticed I've still got a few deeper scratches that won't come out and a few spots where I had used touch up paint and the small blob of paint shows. (I was using an orange pad with Optimum Compound and then going over again with an Optimum Polish with a white pad).

I don't feel comfortable enough with going with something more aggressive and to be honest, I don't have enough experience to know whether it's something that can be handled by a more aggressive pad, or if it requires wetsanding to get the scratch out.

Right now, these scratches barely catch a fingernail, so I don't think it's deep enough to hit paint. The touch up paint parts I think is pretty self explanatory - most people have used it at some point and know what the "blob" I'm talking about is.

Just trying to get an idea of whether wetsanding is the solution or just try something a bit more aggressive.
