I will say that unless you have some really bad dings, you can probably skip the medium pad and go straight to the light one. Or just hit the worst spots with the medium and do the rest with the light.
And use pressure with the polishing compounds, enough to slow the angle grinder down.
If you follow that, and just take your time on it, it comes out pretty sweet. I found myself working a small area at a time before moving on. And do your back a favor and clamp it to something that's tall enough so you're not bending over.
Lasty, wear a dust mask, and do it outside, or at least close an area off. Pretty much everything in my garage has a nice layer of black funk on it now. And I did the compound steps outside even!
