    I've had good results with Flitz polish. Tape off the surrounding area and apply to surface with brissel brush, allow to dry and buff off with ortibal buffer. Apply good marine wax for protection.

          I agree that if you can remove the piece that a bench buffing wheel has good results. I buffed the Mako courtsey lights prior to following TC procedure replacing the incandescent lights with Hella LEDs. Again if you tape off the piece if you can not remove it that will prevent getting the black residue on the gelcoat. Haven't been able to post pictures from Photobucket account and havent tried Imgur.com yet.
