    M100 Pro Speed Compound - blue, dusty, but eats scratches like detailing candy!

    I just finished my first paint polishing on my new Challenger (I will post the results in a different thread later). Upon recommendation from Mike Stoops, I used M100 for the primary compounding stage of my full paint correction. I found M100 to be the dustiest compound I've used since M105 and it wasn't long before I realized I was going to spend equal amounts of time cleaning up the resulting blue dust that coated the paint and glass as I was on compounding. And it's not the kind of dust you can just brush away with a dry microfiber towel (that just spreads it around. The dust just leans back, hands on hips, and laughs at you), I had to brush the dust into crevices and other collection points such as the windshield sill and vacuum it up with my DeWalt handheld vac or collect it on a mf towel dampened with Last Touch.

    While M100 was a dust PITA, it is MIGHTYFINE! effective on scratch removal. Three times during my paint correction I discovered fine scratches that caught my fingernail, albeit lightly, that I thought I could probably blend/diminish at best, and all three times M100 (with a microfiber pad and speed setting of 5 on the Rupes) ERASED those scratches with only one set of cross-hatched passes.

    Awesome product. I don't think I will use it over D300 on future polishings just because of the dust, but it's a great go-to for scratches I had previously thought might have to be lightly sanded and buffed.

    Did you use a Rotary or PC?

    M100 seems to be very sensitive to environmental factors - personally I've seen it get really dusty at times and not very dusty at all on other projects. But it does cut like crazy and can leave a fantastic finish in the process.

    John mentioned using his Rupes buffer, which is a long throw DA tool.
