Can somebody recommend a certain rubbing compound for heavily oxidized paint that has in places some surface rust starting to show? Any advice or tips? Other than a paint job (I'm kinda into the patina thing)

I use McQuire's products with either a McQuire's wool or foam pad with my Harbour Freight grinding/buffing wheel. Both pads use velcro to attach to the wheel making change out a snap. The photo below is a small section I did in the origial Fathom Green laquer finish on my '51 Fletline trunk lid.
