Hi Terry  - For the boyywork I'd suggest some 3M hand glaze - its a very
mild rubbing compound and will take off the haze. If you want to do a
really good job on it use the 
3M medium glaze - it will take off all the oxidation and leave you with a
beautiful finish
Use it sparingly, in one direction - best stuff ive ever used
For the window - try the hand glaze in a corner, ive used it to take off
a stain once and it worked fine but havnt tried an all over application
