Default Polishing Stainless

I am looking for suggestions for how to get micro scratches and water spots off of the polished stainless on my TC.

I used never dull and mothers polish on the rear stainless around the tail lights. It took a great deal of elbow grease, but came out pretty good. Unfortunately, I then tried to "thumb nail" a couple of globs of tar off and scratched it pretty good too.

Now that the rear of the coach is polished (aside from the thumb nail scratches), the storage bay doors really look like they need some love. There has to be a better, much more efficient method than just pulling up a chair and spending an hour or more per door!

I havent & I havent polished any stainless steel either.

I've polished my (pickup truck) 50g in bed aluminum fuel tank & I've "touched up" the aluminum wheels on our coach.

I have a dewalt grinder that I use - its not gonna last doing this, small cheap grinders motors get hot fast and will burn up quickly - make a the investment in a good large one.
