    Hazy finish after M201

    After reading a ton about the use of Meguiars M101 and M201, I still can't figure out why I can't get a good shine with M201.
    my objective is to compound and polish after painting with Kirker Ultra-Glo Single Stage. After working a small area once and then several times using the (pad prime => three pea-sized drops of M201 => cross-hatch with rotary polisher and white pad at 1000-1500 rpm) technique, I get a nice, uniform, cloudy finish. I'm simplifying by leaving M101 out of the discussion, because the same thing happens regardless of whether I precede the 201 with the 101, as I found on different test panels. I think that the attached photo illustrates pretty well. It shows a non-polished panel on the bottom with good gloss, and a polished panel on the top that is hazy/cloudy. I have wetted a small area of the polished panel to show that the gloss returns when wetted to appear similar to the gloss of the non-polished panel. Again, this is single stage; no clear coat.

    Sorry, I can't figure out how to attach the image file; the option seems to be disabled.
