If the rig is that bad, but its worth it to you to shine it up, wash it but scrub. Some of oxidation will come off. Wax it with Maguires cleaner wax(tan bottle #6) rubbing in a circular motion like an orbital. The color will come off on the pad, but keep going. With the status of the paint, you may want to unwax each panel as you get it done. If the wax doesn't want to come off, use a spray bottle full of clean water to help removal (mist, wipe, polish. Waxing will repair the clear coat enuf to prep it for buffing. If you have no means to get it buffed, just keep waxing it. It'll keep getting better.

In his defence... we really didn't have room for it. At all. And this was when I was 15 and he didn't know I would have gotten as into jeeps and mechanical work as I have.

It's worth it to me to shine it up so I can sell it for more than I bought it for. I have a buffing pad for a drill. What do you recommend for products? And what should I scrub with? I always scrub my cars but with soft microfiber scrubbers.

I don't mind the diamond plate getting hammered with mud and rocks. It's more for armor, but it is for the look too.
