    Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it.
    The first time it will take a bit more to get the pad primed. After that I would try maybe 2-3 pea sized drops. Maybe someone else can chime in with more experience. I've only tried it 2-3 times with a DA. If you try it, post back and let us know what you did and how it worked for you.

    Good luck!

    So if I understand correctly, any hazing that may occur with M105 and a DA can be corrected later with using the DA and a finishing product right? The reason why I am leaning towards the DA is I am trying to fix a rock chip and don't want to use a rotary that might pull the touch up out. I would rather use the DA over hand since it will probably make a more uniform finish.

    If your doing a rock chip give it a try by hand. My first post in this thread was by hand with only one pass. M105 works amazing by hand.

    Correct if you end up with hazing you will need to follow up with a finer polish.

    I agree. Go at that by hand and M105 first.

    Thanks guys. I will give it a go by hand with the M105 then and maybe follow up with the DA and some light polish. I should be able to apply this stuff with an foam applicator from Autozone right?

    Yes or microfiber applicator pads.

    You can use terry cloth for a more abrasive bite but when you rub hard with terry cloth this can put toweling marks into the paint, thus the recommendation for foam or microfiber.

    Also, to understand why myself and these others have recommended hand over the DA for removing sanding marks, do an advanced search using the word,

    exert

    and read some of my comments on this topic in the threads your search brings up.

    Great test, that looks awesome! That is a nice finish, you didn't polish or wax? I've been using 95 for awhile, but haven't tried 105 yet. Can't wait to try some!

    Hey was wondering if M85 could do the same thing? I don't think we stock M105 in Australia.

    I doubt it. M85 is a great product, but nothing compares to M105. It's in a class by itself if you ask me.

    Sorry for the delay. I didn't use any other products for the photo. That's just with M105.

    I've never used M85 but if I had to guess I wouldn't think it would work. M105 is designed for use by hand or rotary, where as M85 is designed to be rotary only.
