This is how far I got yesterday - I tried some stainless steeler cleaner prior to this photo and it made it very cloudy. I had to go over the entire thing with the polishing pad again to bring back the shine. Would some metal polish and elbow grease help shine it up a bit more?

Press a little harder with the polishing pad. You should be able to do it all with that and not use any BKF or the like. If it still looks cloudy with the angle grinder, it won't get any better manually. I was in the same boat as you until I read this somewhere else. Good luck.
First they came for my Four Loko and I said nothing, then they came for my Double Imperial Espresso Stout.
