A friend of mine just picked this car up a week ago from a local Ford Dealer. I honestly do not know how their detail department gets away with putting out this kind of work! This car was in the worse condition out of ALL the cars I have done so far..keep in mind this is Ford paint..its moderately hard. Also keep in mind this was 1 WEEK AFTER Ford detailed it.. :mad:

Id also like to mention that this was my first time using M105, I dont think a polish/compound can get any better than this! Most of the reviews say its got a learning curve, maybe I just did enough research before I tried using it. this stuff is no joke, it literrally removes ALL defects in 20-30 seconds whereas SIP/PFW would have taken atleast 3-5 minutes! It would have taken 4 passes to do what I did with M105 twice to get the same results...I have definitely found my new favorite!

Now in the halogens.. :ignore:

Hood..


Front Fender..


Front Fender..


Door..


Rear Fender..




50/50 with SIP/PFW..not quite enough but almost.


This side with M105/Burgandy Wool. It left its own marring but it removed all defects very weel and in VERY LITTLE time. Was almost effortless!


This side with SIP/PFW. I got a pretty good finish with this combo, however there were still traces of defects throughout the panel and took considerably more time to remove less defects. So I chose to do the car with M105.


SIP LEFT/BEFORE/M105 RIGHT


I did a small section over my M105 panel with 106FF/LC FLAT WHITE and found no holograms just as TSC17 said! Saved me ALOT of time!
