So I just got my car back from the body shop, rear ended. The back third of the car was repainted looks good as fuck.

But the rest of the car is covered with moderate swirl marks, I'd like to match to make that look good in the next couple weeks.

So I was thinking of going for the G110 polisher, try the m83 polish first. But if probably hit the car with M105 then M205. Then do I have to use anything after the m205 like the black diamond polish by hand? Or just go for the M20 sealant, M07 glaze, and M26 wax combo you described?

I do have an old bumber and old trunk from the accident I can do a little practice on

How long can I expect a 16 or 32 oz bottle of one of these products to last?

Sorry for all the questions! Most I've ever used on my car is swirl-x and wax.

This thread is alot of help.

IF YOU JUST GOT YOUR CAR REPAINTED.... you're going to need to wait about 90 days before doing a wash and wax on the painted part.... but the process you want to do, will work out just fine. If you have panels to work on I would suggest some light cutting pads like these along with the M105. After the M205, wash the car very well again to remove any polishing oils and dust, and you're ready to protect it. Nothing else needs to be done after the M205.

Again do not wax/seal paint before 90 days.... it needs to breathe. You can put a coat of M07 glaze on it, but that's the most you can do

I've heard that about fresh paint, never really sure though. The body shop told me it was heat baked and a urethane clear so I didn't have to worry about waiting?

Thanks I'll stick with those products!

awesome stuff, glad i found this thread before attempting this. Only problem now is if i can find the M105 M205 stuff local. Hate paying for shipping, makes the cost almost double on small stuff like this (to Canada that is)

sorry, the good Meguiar's stuff is by mail only try www.autodetailingsolutions.com They have the best prices around.... unless you have an independent Meguiar's detailer in your area... might want to give them a call and see if they'd sell you a bottle.

i looked on meguiars site for canada and they are quite a few dealers, even wal-mart is a dealer lol. However these are for their general products, the professional ones like M105 and M205 probably arent normally stocked i imagine

on that note krzemienr, how might this compare to M105 ----> http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/brows....jsp?locale=en

and M205 ----> http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/brows....jsp?locale=en

granted this stuff is probably just average stuff, but i dont feel like paying for the shipping with UPS. Shipping alone on those two products would probably be over $50 knowing UPS. ...
