I would be very careful using a machine polisher and t-cut - you can all too easily do more damage than originally. In the hands of a "professional" a machine polisher is obviously the way to go.
You would need to "practice" first to be sure you won't damage the paintwork.

T-cut isn't really that much good for modern metallic paints, you are better off using a very fine rubbing compound,"scratch remover" paste, Meguiars make several products, of which I have yet to try.

If I were you I would spen your 15 on some good quality scratch remover,paintwork renovator polish from Meguiars,Autoglym etc and use good old fashioned elbow grease.

Don't forget to finish off with a good quality wax polish either, otherwise you hard work will be ruined after a few days of rain o the paintwork. As the renovator polishes do not contain any waxes to "protect" the final finish.
