    Same question here

    That threw me for a loop. I always thought it was a fine polish capable of most anything.

    So yeah, thanks for making that video available!!


    End result after 3 passes of damp sanding, 1 pass of compounding, and 1 finish polishing.

    I kind of feel like M100 cuts harder than Zephir. Of course, it depends on the paint too. I love them both though... And FG400!

    Why would you recommend not using M205? According to AGO M101 page it states

    "For best results, follow Meguiars M101 Foam Cut Compound with Meguiars M205 Ultra Finishing Polish. This will further refine the surface and provide a wax-ready finish."


    Thanks,

    I'm dying to hear why Mike doesn't recommend following m101 with m205

    I believe he says it can leave micro marring on some paints

    Then my question is why use M101 in the first place if I will be limited in the polish that I can follow it up with? Specific situation? Certain types of paints?

    Kevin Brown states specifically on his website

    "Meguiar's M101 Professional Foam-Cut Compound leaves a very nice finish.
    Follow-up polishing is not always necessary when using M101, but plan on having to do so. The most important thing you can do to achieve optimum finishing results with M101 is to keep the buffing pad clean. Further, it is not necessary to use high machine speeds when using M101. Should any micro-marring be present atop the paint surface once compounding has been completed, follow-up by polishing the surface using a dedicated refining polish and a finishing pad (use a liquid such as Meguiar's M205 Ultra Finishing Polish or D301 DA Microfiber Finishing Wax, applied via a foam polishing or finishing pad)".


    Both of these guys are experts with differing opinions here. I can only believe if we knew why they differ on this it can only help increase our knowledge with regard when to best use M101 and optional follow up polishes.

    Re: 7424 & m101

    I'm thinking the recommended Sonax would cut quicker and finish better.

    I have never used it so I don't know. Lately I have favored Hyper-polish over M205 for my go to.

    But a thread like this makes me want to finally purchase some EX04-06 or Nano polish.
