Unfortunately I reside(Ontario, Canada) no where near a good detail shop and prefer to detail myself. I own a 2005 OB SRT4 and would love to maybe get a detailed step instructions as to what you did to make that OB look the way it does. You did a fantastic job and I would like to try those products and your methods on my car.

If you dont mind sharing your secrets or just your methods I would love to try them out for myself, Pm Me :).

Car looks awesome great job.
Ill just keep the thread going instead of a PM. All you need is money, the machine does the rest of the work pretty much.

porter cable 7424xp (wont burn the paint if you dont no what your doing)
Orange lake country 6.5" pad. Use meguiars #105 with this pad for the whole car.
Than you need a White lake country pad 6.5" and use meguiars #205 with that over the whole car.
Than you can use what i wish i had which is meguiars #21 sealant and use a Lake country Black 6.5" pad. after that your good.


This page below really helped me

If you're going to buy a DA, go with the Griot's Garage or the Meguiar's G110V2. The PC XP is weak; mine is used as a wax spreader now. The Griot's unit is a torque monster.
Has Meguiars fixed the power cord failure issue yet? I've gone thru two units now, each failed within two months of minimal use. About to send unit #2 back under warranty, but seriously regretting not just buying the Griot's DA in the first place. Probably will end up either buying it or the Flex DA.

I have no pictures I'll try and get some soon took me all of yesterday todo and now today my arms and shoulders are in agony from wiping the 105 off. That shit is tough. I don't think it's worth the medical problem I might face doing it for friends. But well see I still need practice.

There are several ways to address this problem.

- work the compound better to reduce residue... ie. after firm pressure passes make 1-2 light pressure passes, or practice the Kevin Brown Method using a fine mist of water as you work the compound. buffdaddy.com

- mix up an IPA solution of no more than 50%, this will dissolve the M105 residue making it easier to remove. But if you're using cheapo mf towels then you risk marring the paint. I also created a solution using 25% IPA and 1/2oz Meguiar's Rinse Free Express Wash.

- use CarPro Eraser to remove residue

- finally, once you prime your pad following the Kevin Brown Method, use 3 dots M105 and 1 dot Meguiar's D300. D300 reduces dust, increases working time, helps to finish down better, and makes removing residue 10x easier.

M105 does have a slight learning curve but it doesn't take long to figure out, maybe 2-3 panels.
