Thanks!
Yes it can be done, it'll take longer for sure so pace yourself and prepare to spend the whole saturday to do the whole car using Porter-Cable. If you don't have that much time do the hood, 2 fenders and 2 front doors and leave the rest for next time. But wax the polished sections.

Phil shows you the list of ingredient for polishing, Menz polish + LC pads (I assume he uses orange with SIP and white with PO85RD).
Practice and check the video on his side, you'll be fine. It takes a long time to polish 2'x2' section using PC so again don't be impatient.
Good luck and check back if you have any more questions.
