    Ultimate Compound is absolutely worth trying, and follow up with Ultimate Polish.

    Looking at your image. There are lines that appear to be in arcs.
    Thinking these could be your sanding marks? If so, Ultimate Compound may remove them. Then follow up with Ultimate Polish.
    Or they could have been inflicted by contaminants getting into the polishing pad. If it is these, you may be able to clean the area again and use a fresh clean pad with Ultimate Polish.

    I believe that you are right that these could be sanding marks.
    I will wash the pad and the area, and apply UC then UP tomorrow. I will post the result here.
    Thank you for your advice.

    You will either need to wash the pad or use a different one for the UC and UP. Otherwise, some of the Ultimate Compound particles might slightly scour the surface id left in the pad when polishing.

    What type of applicator pad are you using? Microfiber or Foam?

    I agree at this point it would be recommended to go in with an application of Ultimate Compound, or any aggressive compound. It can take quite a heavy technique to remove sanding marks by hand. Most any product will make the appearance of a sanded area look more glossy, but that does not mean the sanding marks have been removed.

    Working by hand, keep your hand flat, use moderate pressure, circular motions, working the product in for about a minute or so. You can repeat this as many as 6 or so times in any given area. After that many attempts, it's likely going to take a machine to remove.
