Detailing my 01 ZX3

When I bought my first ZX3 last year, the paint was shot! It's a black car so I can see every blemish. I can even faintly see where someone wrote their name or something on the hood! At first i didn't care since I bought the car mainly for it's practicality, but now I appreciate everything about this little "black bubble". I'm saving for a tune at FS Werks and then for an exhaust and/or header and CAI.

In the meantime I want to work on the cars appearance. The question is... what products do you recommend (compounds/waxes, etc.) I use to hopefully buff out most of the shallow scratches and to bring the paint back to life as much as possible (and then to protect it). Also, what do you recommend I use on the dash, steering wheel, console, etc.?

Thanks as always fellow Fanatics
