Make sure you use the detail spray to prime your pad.

You still have dead animal carcasses in your radiator. I'll take the Nittos. That'll save you some weight!

I think you might need a little heavier compound to get it back to the shine your looking for, looking good so far but try turning your speed down a little on you buffer!!!!!
