How do I get rid of these scratches?

Question

OK so I got my PC last week and stated to work a few sections this weekend. I was very happy with the results, seemed to get rid of all the swirls pretty easily. I still have some scratches though and want to know how to tackle them. I took several more pictures but I'm no photographer so the scratches didn't show up so heres one to start haha. The scratch is kinda hard to see but its starts under the fluorescent light and continues on a long ways....

 

<table style="width:auto;"><tr><td><a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/7Mn30Jtbd5whw2_OSAAt_SPbkbids_q-21-cSRCWNYA?feat=embedwebsite"><img src="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_1BPQZrq2Weo/TLPb5goT60I/AAAAAAAAABA/H3DVOYEVTUs/s144/2010_10_11_0782.JPG" height="96" width="144" /></a></td></tr><tr><td style="font-family:arial,sans-serif; font-size:11px; text-align:right">From <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/KyleDWatson/G8Scratches?authkey=Gv1sRgCJquy-TXiqDjHQ&feat=embedwebsite">g8 scratches</a></td></tr></table>

 

I washed, clayed, orange/SHR, white/FMP, black/MSW. Speed setting 5 on the PC. I hit the areas several times with the SHR and FMP trying to get results but I'm not sure if I am not applying enough pressure or too much etc. I also don't know if this is something that I would need a yellow pad for. It isn't really that bad I just cant get rid of it

 

Keep in mind I did this on Sunday so by the time I took the pic tonight Im sure I accumulated some dust. I made sure it was clean/clayed when I started. It was also my first time out with a PC

 

Any tips are much appreciated :D

I'm assuming you mean the one thats intersecting the overhead florescent light?

 

The looks to be deeper than just a swirl mark. The porter cable, or any DA polisher is only going to be good for removing very light surface scratches and swirl marks. For something like that you're gonna need to take a much more aggressive approach.

 

The 4" focus pads on a drill would probably do the job:

Thanks Dylan. I am referring to the the one intersecting the overhead fluorescent. It must be too deep, I will try my focus pads and see if that does it
