Thanks for the replies! It'* not quite where I want it yet, but this was the first time polishing, so I'll hit it again in the spring. Once I was done, I almost didn't want to drive it. My wife said "wow, it'* sooo smooth!" I'm thinking about getting the windows tinted, but I'm not sure I want to mess with the lights.
I highly recommend the Collinite 845 wax for anyone in the northern states. It was very easy to use, and is said to be the most durable wax out there, giving protection through the winter.
