...but the previous owner of my car didn't care for the body quite as well as I would have liked...

Well I must not be doing something right. All of the stuff arrived, and I tried polishing out some very light scratches on a section of the hood, and I sare say it looks no different than before. I followed all of the tips on ProperAutoCare.com. I used the orange power pad with the Menerza IP, and I did figure-8 patterns over the affected area with the Porter Cable on about 3.5, starting with about a nickel-sized blob of polish. I can still clearly see the scratches, and these are TINY scratches--can't feel them with the fingernail or anything, so I'd think that a polisher could at least take care of most of it.
So I must be doing something wrong. Let me ask you guys--how long should I go over the area with the polisher? A minute? two? And how hard should I press? Perhaps I was babying it too much this first time, and that's why I didn't get any results...I was worried about overpolishing or burning the clear coat. Any additional advice would be great.
