What is the difference between these to products? I have not heard much about M86 but here a lot about D151.

Hi. Frm what I know, D151 is a AIO (all in one product - clean and wax) which is slightly aggressive than M83 (dual action cleaner polish). I've used it with a wool pad and a maroon and yellow pads with great results on few fleet cars.

As for the solo system, its a 1step system (compounding and polishing)for body shops that does not want to get confuse with differing products for compounding and as well as polishing processes.
Apart, Solo's aggresiveness can reach the scale of 10 as the system has only 1 liquid with differring wool pads and foam pads which at the end will afffect the cutting/polishing power (pad dependant)


Hope this helps. :xyxthumbs

Yes it helps alot I has M86 confused, I was thinking it was an AIO. So D151 would be somewhat similar to M66.

M105 = Aggressive Compound for removing defects.
M95 = Aggressive Compound for removing defects
M86 = Aggressive Compound for removing defects
D151 = Aggressive Cleaner/Wax for removing defects and leaving behind a polished and protected finish

M105, M95, M86 formulated for and targeted towards the body shop industry where people are wet-sanding and then compounding fresh paint.

D151 formulated for and targeted towards production detail shops where people are removing serious paint defects on cured paint.

I might add, D151 is a GREAT time saver in that it especially does well to not only not ruin certain plastics, but actually IMPROVE their looks.

I detailed a customer's BMW X5 yesterday and the D151 was my second step (After M105) and it was AWESOME because the shiny/painted black trim on the BMW actually gained significant gloss from the D151, and I didn't have to tape it off.

I've found it works on a fair amount of plastics this way, with only some more rough and lighter grey plastics not liking it.

yes I have to play around with my car more to see if I get the same results. What tool and settings are you using when you buff out the paint?

151 is a product that can be used with the G110 isn't it...just want to make sure before I purchase a little sample of it

I experienced the same thing during product testing...
Glad you brought it up!
