    Finishing up a vehicle right now, all with M105 and a rotary. Just changing pads. I'll have the results up in a day or so.

    Well, thanks a lot Kevin. You told the world about our secret ingredient. Now I'll have to answer to all the candy stores that have no Pixie Dust because we cornered the supply!

    We wish them luck

    Thank you, but we are definitely not abandoning our "Diminishing Abrasive Technology" which we started offering in 1901. In fact, if you look back at time, and compare our technology to some of the "Rocks in a Bottle" that were available back in time, our "Diminishing Abrasive Technology" was far superior. However, due to our advances in technology ( yes we do have our own lab and full staff of chemists on site here in Irvine, Ca) as well as paint technology, we discovered a new solution for this type of product / customer (M105 that is). With that said, we still strongly believe in all of our products that contain our "Diminishing Abrasives" and we will continue to to utilize our "Diminishing Abrasive Technology" in the future in the right products.

    There are so many more factors that go into "cutting" than just the "size" of the abrasive. That is the information that is propriety.

    You are right...in the big picture most everything breaks down over time including the road we drive on....However, there are variables in our formulations where the time it takes to "breakdown" can be controlled 100%. For example, is it 3 passes or 300 passes with a rotary buffer to get that "breakdown" effect you refer to. Therefore, our non diminishing abrasive technology is far different than our diminishing abrasive technology.

    Great ! We look forward to your thoughts when you actually try M105


    Now...with all that said, lets just let M105 prove itself in the eyes of each user, and we ask that this thread not get any further sideways.

    This thread was originally a GREAT review by Tim, and lets let is get back to that.

    Thanks in advance.

    Based on reviews here and Autopia (Todd, aka TH001 seems to be blown away by the results!) I am actually eager to spend nearly $100 on a gallon of #105.
