    really fine wet sanding or a really good polishing compound is how ive dine this in the past. Can't remember the grit of the paper but it was the finest i had in my garage. Just make sure its kept pleny went and give it a good buff after

    You cant polish out marks made by flies using a buff.

    You need to take the paint back so there are no marks and if you had flies landing on the car this may be a few coats .

    The grade of wer/dry you need is the finest that will do the above then continue up to around 1200 in stages. You may go through the top coat . If you do you will need to put at least one "fly free " coat on top and then polish

    Of course it depends on what you mean by a great finish.
    To me you cant get that in the open , and as you got flies on it presumably thats how you did it.
