    M26 Leaving an oily residue?

    Is it normal for M26 to leave an oily residue on the paint?

    No, it shouldn't leave any residue behind.

    What did you apply before it (ie did you clay, polish?) and what are you wiping it off with?

    Polished the car with M205 and a PC with white LC pad, then M26 with a black LC pad. Wiped her down with a brand new MF towel.

    Also, how thick of a coat did you apply? How long did it dry?

    Re: M26 Leaving an oily residue?

    P.S.-Did the same thing on my Caddy. I just thought it was the M7 I used. I used M105 with Surbuf and LC Orange, M205 with LC White, M7 with LC Black, M21 with LC Blue, 2 coats of M26 With LC Gold all done with PC 7424XP. I had to wipe it down with M34 a couple of time and of course put scratches in it trying to get the redisue off. Overkill I know.

    Here it is.

    The coat was so thin it almost looked like I didn't put anything on it. Dry time was 1 hour.

    On my Caddy same thing only dry time was 24 hours between M21 and M26 coats.

    I don't post much but am also not a noob.
