My 2001 Acura TL has been a great car; I have had it for 12 years, and 172k miles. Until earlier this year I was taking care of my car all wrong, and with this car being white it’s hard to see all the mistakes. Then I bought a black car and wow all mistakes are visible no matter what. So today I did some correction with M105, and M205. It was my first time using M105 and didn’t know what to expect, I have read reviews about dusting and not letting it dry.
Yes there is tons of dusting, and I did have some dry on the car I had to use blackfire waterless wash to remove it. As an amateur hobbyist I must say the results are great with m105, but please please take your time and work a small section at a time, and expect to dedicate 3 hours to polishing and clean up, before applying LSP.
Wells here’s some pics, first capturing imperfections in a white car was a challenge in its self. I think I spent close to 20 mins to get a good pic, and still ended up with some mediocre shots. The paint had swirls, rids, and waterspots.
After doing a rinseless wash with Megs D114 I primed the pad like Todd H said in his M105 video on Autopia. I worked the product into pad and let it sit for a couple of minutes. And at a speed of 6 on my Megs GV110 I went to work.
Heres some before shots, again it was really hard to capture RIDS, swirls and waterspots.
I used the purple cobras to clean up the m105, DO NOT LET IT DRY!!! You will spend equal amount of time cleaning it up as polishing.
Overall I was really happy with M105, the results are astonishing and with a Cyan LC Hydrotech pad the results were LSP ready.
Here is the finished product. No more waterspots and swirls!!
