The "white" stuff you are referring to is because the paint is oxidized. I would try starting with a good coat of wax, to protect that, it worked on my Jeep for awhile, and since mine is red, I used the Turtle Wax with the red pigment in it, which brought a lot of the color and shine back. Eventually, I did have to have it buffed up a little to bring the color back and then waxed again, just depends on whether you want to at some point paint it. Good luck! P.S. - red paint looks great but is one of the harder colors to maintain.
