    In the interior hood pic (1 up from the bottom) you can see the Scangrip Multimatch light. You can not find a swirl in the light (or sun).
    IMHO the M110/210 is a winning 1-2 punch combo. I did find some light dusting in the air with M110. It was not caused by the pad/panel.
    This was a fine dust in the air. Now it may have been my environment but later the dust settled on the paint and was easily wiped off.
    The finish I was able to achieve with M110 and M210 was truly remarkable. It looked like a wet black mirror with tires. He was blown away!

    Now the above quote is about as good of feedback as one can ask for! When you get a minute, i'd be happy to know what machine/pad you used to cut. More details the better. Definitely keep us in touch for future uses!

    For other members reading - Full disclosure, this is NOT a paid or "free product" review! In fact, we do not do those at all on the forum, and if we did, we would absolutely disclose it in big bold letters.

    Yepper, when I ran into you at SEMA you were doing demos of the new M110/M210 twins.
    I begged, cried, pleaded and downright made a fool of my self trying to get you to let me take some home.
    A couple of the other detailing big dogs (Jason Kilmer etc.) were there too trying to break the new Megs twins and couldn't.

    No tiny samples, nothing!!! I ordered it as soon as I got home and could find it and I was chomping at the bit to give it a try.
    Yes, I bought them with my own dime!!! Now that said...I'm still a big fan of M101 and I hope it does not get discontinued!
    So just in case, I also ordered a few quarts of M101 for my personal "stash". It is still a favorite and an awesome product!

    Hi Merlin,

    Thank you very much for taking the time to share your process and pictures! Glad you like the stuff. Couple of things I thought I would share for you to try based on your feedback - try speed 3-4 for the compounding, and even a final pass at speeds 1.5-2, which may help reduce dusting a bit, and also improve finish even further. For polishing, we have found that if ever M210 doesn't knock it out of the park from the get-go, switching to a firmer polishing pad and/or really dropping the speed down can help take the finish to the upper levels of truly flawless. Hope that helps!

    Thanks again,

    Thank you for your response. I'll try both of those product/process changes and let you know my results.

    Interesting...slower speeds and firmer pad...Thank you again!
