Lipstick on a pig

Tomorrow (5/19), I have a car show to attend with the Datsun, so I figured it might be time to give it a bit of shine.

To start, I used a little Optimum no rinse wash and shine. It got the sap and dust off effectively.

However, you can see that it wasn't going to be enough to just wash and wax:

I use 3M products (rubbing compound, machine polish, and ultra-fine machine polish) on a DeWalt 7" buffer.

Shitty half-and-half pic (half done with the rubbing compound, half uncorrected):

After polish, before wax:

After wax:

It's not as critical as on a black car (thank goodness), but it's still a noticeable thing when all those scratches are gone.
Your powers are useless! I'm wearing my tin foil underwear!
