I make no guarantees, but this is what I would try if I were in your shoes: I’d sand the poly off and get back to just epoxy, then try wet sanding the epoxy itself through a succession of grits all the way to around 1200. The final step, to achieve the gloss level you want, would be rubbing out with automotive polishing compound.

Having no personal experience with the West epoxy, I’m not 100% sure how it will respond to this. But I agree with Pete that there should not be a need for any kind of top coat over it.
