hopefully. The thing is, it needs to be leveled and all the scratches from wet sanding removed in order to shine.

Wet sand with 1000, 1500, 2000, and 3000. Go in steps. Goin to take some time.

make sure to let the paper soak in your soap/water solution for 24 hours as well.

Is this what you're normally supposed to do?

yes but if you started with 2000 then go to 3000 and then to compound. All that's gonna happen is it's going to take long to compound out...

Right now, I'm hitting it with the 2000, but I don't have the 3000. I'll see what it looks like after the 2000 and compound, then depending on the results, buy the 3000

Just want to thank you for the help. I finally got around to buying some 3000, and it worked wonders! It looks great now.
