    Just an idea...how close are you to the border? Close enough to jump across to Bellingham? Should be able to score at a PBE outlet there.

    I have used Meguiar's M100 Pro Speed Compound with Microfiber Cutting Disk in 5 inch and 3 inch with DA MT300.
    I have also seen Mike Stoops and Nick Winn use it with success on a couple cars.
    These had rather hard clear coat, with moderately deep scratches. Paint did need a follow up of a polish step (M205 or Ultimate Polish) to take some of the haze out after the compounding.

    I'm one of the very, very few folks allergic to D300, so M100 is my choice (of first test section) for compounding with microfiber.

    M100 is a great compound. I also reach for it more than D300. D300 is great, but M100 is better for me.

    Close enough to make the trip, far enough that I'd want to confirm inventory before going, especially given how slow the border has become since US CBP was given an aggressive mandate.

    Any suggestions for Blaine or Bellingham PBE stores? The Meguiar's online listings don't discriminate between retailers and commercial suppliers.

    So, no editing allowed...

    Didn't realize Meguiar's had removed the dealer locator from meguiars.com, so I don't even have that option. Meguiars.ca locator only yields results if you input the store name; a postal code produces a spinning wheel.

    Mind you, it's been a while, but look up Westco Auto Body. If I remember right there was/were 2 stores in Bellingham.

    Here ya go...It's Wesco (not Westco), 1507 Iowa St, Bellingham, Tel: 360-671-0900. From my past (Seattle area), they were my go-to for Meguiar's product. Always good folks to deal with, hope they still are.
