Try 3M Marine Fiberglass Restorer and Wax (Amazon) Or, the old and cheap Meguiars cleaner and wax in the dark red bottle at WalMart. If you have a random orbit buffer load it with a microfiber and just keep on running that Meguiars on it.

You need to know what it is you're trying to remove to make it shine? Probably oxidation if in Kingman, been sitting in the sun for 4 years and not cleaned/waxed often.

If the above is the case (make sure) you can use various cleaners/abrasives with a RA buffer and try to buff it out - it ain't easy and once the oxidation is there it is a repetitive, fairly frequent process.

Realize that the Cougar is not a high gloss finish like the Montana and Alpine. You will get a sheen, but not a shine.
