Finally gotten a bottle of M105 to try out. Many thanks to fellow Meguiar's Malaysia forummer KC for splitting the 1 gallon bottle with me.
So much has been said about the cutting and finishing ability of M105 so I was looking forward to trying it out.
On with the review:
Washing the car with NXT Car Wash. (Note the lack of a second bucket. I prefer to hose off the wash mitt instead of using another bucket as I feel the second bucket tends to get quite dirty and it seemed easier to just hose it off.):
Clay after one section of the hood:
Drying the car with the Water Magnet:
Taping off for the test:
Malaysian 'Sun Gun':
Lots of swirls and scratches (it was quite a challenge to capture these on a white car):
Makita 9227C with Solo Light Wool Cutting Pad + M105:
W7006 Cutting Pad:
Priming the Pad with the KBM method:
The M105 with W7006 didn't do much so on with the Solo Heavy Wool Cutting Pad:
The M105 + W7006 Cutting Pad. Still some visible swirls:
The Solo Light Wool Pad still left some swirls so on with the Solo Heavy Wool Cutting. Result!!! Substantially less swirls:
Followed up the M105 with M80 and NXT Tech Wax 2.0.
Got done quite late at night but managed to take some shots of the car before calling it a day.
