Using 320 grit paper sand out all gouges or scratches or in the case of the OP all the corrosion. If it's really deep it does not hurt to two step it using a coarser sand paper first then the 320. If you really want to get carried away it does not take much longer to hit it with a 500 grit before polishing.
Next it gets polished with the black rouge with a "rough" cut pad then finished with the white rouge and a cotton or "finish" buff pad. While it can be used with with a good regular buffer for the amount I use it I have a portable 1HP I use, I can't find a picture of one right now but I'll try and take one of it tomorrow and post it.
Then use I use Mothers either by hand or with a power buffer it depends on how I feel and how much time I don't have.
