Buy a clay bar kit at your local auto parts store like OReilly or you can even get it at Walmart. The package will have directions but its pretty straight forward. Keep the body lubricated when running the clay bar over the paint.

This. Just make sure you keep the area in which you are working at lubricated.

What the clay bar does is pick up any surfacing elements on the body/paint. It will give you a smooth and clean surface when done properly. Then you use compound, polish, then wax.
