If the tank is empty I know where I use to work we would use Maguires medium cut polish, then fine polish and finally finished up with swirl remover all on a power buffer. If the scratches were pretty bad we would use wet sand paper I think it was either 1000 or 1500 grit. I can't remember. The guy who showed me was really good and you couldn't even tell. You just have to be really careful with the sand paper and not to burn the tank with the side of the buffer touching the tank. Good luck!

If u need to do it with a full tank talk with ME35 he had some great success with removing some serious scratches and the tank looks amazing now! All done with a fully stocked tank too!
