If you really pushed for time I'd say a strong prewash. Shiny Garage Citrus or Autoglanz Spritzer. Wash and then a spray and rinse LSP to finish, bead juice, hydro2 etc.

Used of that list britemax, g3 and hd. I'd put britemax and g3 as pretty even. The hd needs more work that those two so I'd put that last.
