    Richy's M105 video (no dusting technique)

    I'm not trying to cut MP's grass here, but with all the bad press and discussion about how badly M105 dusts (it doesn't for me), that I thought I would shoot a short video to show my technique and what I do to prepare the pads so you get the desired results. M105 continues to blow me away with its capabilities! Check it out:

    (If you guys want, I will shoot another on a black car showing M205 and possibly both products)

    Re: Richy's M105 video (no dusting technique)

    I understand what you're saying, because when I use M105, I normally get either mild dusting, to zero dusting. IME, I've noticed that it's technique dependent and my technique usually has to adapt to the paint I'm working on. When my technique is bad, M105 tends to punish my feeble attempt and I'll notice traits from mild dusting to gumming. But as I adapt to the paint and improve my technique, the dusting and gumming goes away. I'll also echo your sentiments, M105 is bad***!!!

    Nice job, Richy.

    What speed were you using on the rotary?

    I have only used 105 once so far and on a white car so I couldn't really see the dusting if there was any. I was spraying my pad with XMT pad conditioner in between passes. Would this be equivalent to wetting the pad first?

    i need to get a rotary! u did 2 section passes where with my PC7424 i have to do like 4-6. what a time saver!

    also i think my problem with dusting is over applying the M105. i do an X on the pad instead of 3 little dots.

    thanks for taking the time to do this video Richy!

    Thanks Richy for the video and the great damp pad tip...I will surely try this.

    Mark, I think he said the speed setting was at 1000.

    Megs M105 is the real thing. When used with M205, it polishes better than anything else I have tried. I used both with a Flex 3401, I can only imagine how it would have turned out if a rotary buffer was used. Richy, your video was superb, I didn't see any issues with dusting at all. Thanks for the demonstration.

    Great tips on the 105 Richy. As you pointed out - not too much product. I know that was my problem the first couple of times with M105.

    Thank you for the video.

    Very nice and informative video Richy! I love 105! Last couple of details using a DA with the MF system, I'e been adding a few drops on the pads on along with the D300 correction compound for a little extra cut.
