I'm fast moving towards the d300 and mf cutting pads. Unless someone can tell me I should just stick with what I've got and just give it more working time.

The best think to do, is post some pictures up, lets look at your work.
It's nothing to do with the level of quality of your work, just how far you have gone in the process, and we can guide you from there on wards

How does this sound ?

Don't use 105 and 205 with the MF pads; they're not designed to work together and I'm sure someone will come on and say 'it works fine' but 105 is a lot more aggressive than D300 and nowhere near as well lubricated as D300.

With 105; make sure your pad is dry: I never prime a pad with water or lube. The additional liquid affect the cut in my experience. Just prime the pad with 105 and work a nice small area. Work a spot pad if the area is really bad.

Try again with 105 and see how it goes, then consider a change. Work it longer, work smaller areas (even down to a 6inch by 6 inch area).

Lake Country Cyan pad is my preferred pad with 105 on hard paints, or you could switch to the MF system.

(For reference, by DA, I don't think you'll see any benefit from going to something like Menz FG500; if 105 doesn't cut it, then I'm pretty sure FG500 won't so a change of tack to the MF system would be better.)

Read some good stuff about the LC cyan. Is this pad better for German paint using megs 105 ? Better combo than the megs mf system?

Different.

It's what I'd use as I really rate the LC pads but I've not tried the Hex pads to give a proper comparison.

Maybe order just one spot pad and try it to see how it goes? Worst case then is you've got a spot pad which will always come in handy.

Then consider the MF system.
