As Niz said unless the marks are under the lacquer, look and see if the stains are on the underside of the bonnet too

Bob, I used T-Cut silver scratch remover, which is a mild compound on mine and then auto glym super resin polish, all the cloudy bits are gone.

You can do it by hand, but will take ages..... you can get cheap machine polishers on the bay!
