if your intent is to sell the car, i would give it a good wash and vaccuuming and call it good. its probably a collector or restorer that is buying, and they
would prefer it in its work clothes.

Paint dries out and gets porous is the reason the rubbing compound stained the paint. You have to remove the part of that paint that is that dry. This is what an automotive buffer will do for you. HF has a 7"
polisher that works very well for around 40 bucks. Not all rubbing compounds are equal either. I never had any luck with Turtle Wax brand. I mostly use 3M or Meguiars.

Thank you Stephen. If you say it works good (I m Leary of their power tools when for about twice the price you can buy name brand) then I ll get one and try it. Where can you buy good pads? I m actually going to pay a guy to do the whole car this time since he knows what he is doing and then I ll get the equipment and "practice" on the tractors I paint.

As mentioned below, aluminum foil really helps clean up light surface rust on chrome parts. I'll just add that I dip the foil into dish soapy water, then buff the part. It's likely a short term fix, as you
have not really fixed the blemishes on the chrome, just made them hard to see.
