    You can find M105 as well as M80, M83 at www.eshine.ca. They're based in Port Colborne (Niagara Falls). My orders arrive at my door pretty quickly and the prices are competitive with the prices stateside. You can't go wrong.

    When you used the #105 by hand with the foam applicator, did it finish off with a haze free crystal clear finish? It looks like it finished off as crystal clear as the scratch X did from the photos, I'm just curious how it was in person

    Re: How To Remove a Bird Dropping Etching by Hand using M105 Ultra Cut Compound

    I've been experimenting with 105 as well., I like it, but I'm still unsure of how much to put on my foam applicator pad when applying?

    Also, I've also experienced some hazing after using 105, i figured I could correct it by following the 105, with 80, but that didn't work as well as expected.

    Any body have any suggestions for me?

    When using M105 by hand to remove defects you would start out with firm pressure, working an area about 1 foot square or smaller and about 50 seconds to a minute into the process you would lighten your pressure up and re-rub out the section with less pressure.

    If you're seeing any hazing after using M105 then chase it with ScratchX.

    It's vitally important that your foam applicators are clean. Just to note, it's possible that M105 could not finish out totally clear but to date it's never happened when I've used in on any paint system, so good technique is a must.

    Hope that helps...

    As Mike said, you want about a one foot square area. So when you put product on the pad, you want to be able to have a thin layer of product on that area. By hand, you could smear it around, or by machine you would do a couple dabs across the area, and then pick them up with the machine as you go.

    Re: How To Remove a Bird Dropping Etching by Hand using M105 Ultra Cut Compound

    Okay, I'm sorry for bringing up an old thread but I am new here. I have the same problem here as you can see from the below picture. What is the best solution for me? These bird drop etchings have been on the car ever since I purchased it, which was in June 2009. Now, it is August. Do they sell M105 in auto parts stores? If not, do you think ScratchX/ScratchX 2.0 will do the job? Please fill me in here guys.

    P.S: I am kind of on a tight budget and I know the M105 can run for about $30+. Would ScratchX/ScratchX 2.0 be the best pick then? =/
