Removing Scuff marks from a Porsche 911/912

I had a friend in my garage and unfortunately he knocked a piece of wood trim into my 1966 912 porsche that left some nice scuff marks on the paint. Lets just say I wasn't too happy about it.

The scuff marks are about 1-2 inches in diameter (I have uploaded an image)



I am certainly no detailer. However, I was planning on washing the car , and figured I would try to remove the scuff marks myself. If I need to, I will take the car to a detailer, but I was going to try to remove these by hand since they aren't too larger. I purchased wolfgang uber compound, some cobra waffle weave microfiber towels, and also a specific applicator for this.

My question is, is there a correct way to try to use the polish, or should I wash the car, apply a couple drops in the affected area, and then rub into? the scratch. I'm not worried about going through the paint since I am doing this by hand (and the reason I wouldn't do it myself if I was going the auto polish route), however, I just don't want to polish swirl marks into the paint into the surrounding area. Please let me know if what I am doing is ok, my mechanic said I shouldn't hurt anything, but I'm picky when it comes to details.

Also, I have a few other small swirl mark areas on the car. Could I also try removing those in a similar fashion.

Any input would be most helpful on this.

Post over in the Paint and Bodywork forum. If you're lucky, 962Porsche will reply. He's expert in all things paint and body and very generous with his information. Your scuff is likely easily corrected.
