I called on body shops to introduce new products at one time in my life. I'm surprised how many phone calls I get from guys TODAY working on body shops still using M85 or something worse and they have never heard of M105, M205 or Menzerna polishes.
Maybe these guys just don't have anyone calling on them anymore? The countermen and women can sometimes be useless too... The local PBE store here in Stuart don't carry any modern stuff. I tried to talk to them once and they blew me off...

Well said Rene and tying it together with the big picture of leaving more paint on the car is the key reason why a person should use the least aggressive product approach.

We know the UC was derived from 105, and one thing they (Megs) did was to tweak it for less dusting.
