Meg m105 and m205

So i have come across an issue that's giving me sleepless nights.....

I have been using the Farecla G3 premium range for machine polishing and getting nice results with Hex-Logic pads on around 6 to 7 cars now and had practice on a scrap bonnet i purchased.

So i fancied trying something a little different and ordered the M105 and M205 from Meguiars as i heard good reviews. I had a black Audi to machine polish which i believe to be hard paint which it was but the 105 worked really well but then issues hit me. When using the m205 with a medium polishing pad or finishing pad i still had faint holograms visible in the sunlight. I tried different pressures and work times which didn't have much effect.

Can someone shed some light on this so i can get some sleep

Many thanks in advance

have you given the panel a wipe down to remove any residue?

I currently use Gtechniq panel wipe with a soft microfiber but they were still present but only faint after the panel wipe. The panel wipe seemed to leave a slight haze / foggy effect when i used it on the bonnet.

I will try and get some photographs uploaded later.

My thoughts were that i have the work time / speed wrong ?

It won't be the panel wipe leaving the maring. It could be that the finishing polish isn't removing the hazing, wipe down after cutting and check. Or it could be that your finishing pad is leaving the maring, or possibly its dirty and needs changed or the finishing polish doesnt have enough cut to remove the hazing from the cutting stage.

Make sure the pads are clean 1st cutting pad plus the finishing pad as well this is crucial, plus the microfibre you are using as well.
As of 205 take your time and the marring should be eliminated but by da it takes time and patience 205 can finish down very well on audi paint, just make sure your machine travel speed is slow and moderate pressure to light pressure working by section by section.
To me it sounds like something is contaminated on the pad or the cloth.

Pictures are needed here to be sure. If its genuine holograms then its clearly down to the machine use. If you have the option to finish with a da then that will immediately eliminate the issue of holograms. However it could indeed be the pnaelwipe/mf cloths if its marring. Different panel wipe type products react with pain differently and can easily came marring. As can application of certain coatings on certain paints.
If you can load some images it will be easier to tell which it is

This is true what matt has said about the panel wipe, a while back I used Gtec panel wipe on black paint and it left some very fine hazing so it could be that or you might need to change your finishing polish to one that breaks down as you work it through its cycle, something like Scholl s40 on a polishing pad not a finishing pad or Sonax perfect finish.

Last week I had the same problem and it was sorted by switching to S40 with a yellow Rupes pad on hard black paint.

You need to put a picture up
