Dried Fish Eyed Paint on my SVT

I needed a new car on a budget and although I really wanted an SVT it just wasn't in the budget. That was until I came across the 2003 Red ZX5 SVT I bought cheap because the cars paint is pretty bad.

It's all fish eyed, orange peeled and if the paint isn't bad enough there's places where the paint ran under the masking take on some of the black plastic pieces like at the base of the windshield.

I LOVE the car and I knew what I was getting but is there anything that can be done to improve the look of the paint without repainting the car? It's simply not in the budget and I can live with it as it is if needs be.

I've found a bunch of info on fish eyes and the other problems but the information is almost all on when the paint is wet.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
