    If you're looking for something easy to remove, DO NOT go anywhere near M07. As I said, I've gone thru a bunch of it, 40 years worth to be exact. I've got over 40 waxes /sealants /polishes on my shelves and NOTHING is as difficult to remove as M07. It's just so damn worth it on a dark classic paint.

    No, have not tried it. Will have a look for it. Have a few suggestions, so which ever I come across first.

    Thanks. Last thing I want is something difficult to remove, especially if it is really designed for classic paint, as opposed to a modern clearcoat.

    I am using M105 for leveling brush touch-ups that have been hit first with #600 paper.
    Suggest you work up the ladder to 3000-5000 range. MUCH easier to remove those pesky sanding marks.

    I agree with Bill.
    600 grit used to be the best we had in the early 1960s. Today, there are wonder alternatives that will likely lead to less work.

    Thanks for that guys. What paper and polish combination do you use to handle brush touch-ups ?
    Also, to do it right, it seems that one needs a tiny, tiny wet sanding block to properly do the leveling....am I right ?

    DA (rupes LHR 15 mark II. I use to use the Megs G110v2 but have now dedicated that as my carpet brush and 4 inch pads).

    As others have mentioned, I would go 600->800->1000->1500 at a minimum before using M105/M100 to remove. It would benefit you even further to go 2000/2500 and or even 2000->3000 before using M105/M100

    nothing that drastic anymore. Dr. Colorchips squeegee thing is way easier and gets 90-95% (sometimes better). And it takes a hot 5 minutes...

    I've made small blocks out of chunks of rubber, like rubber stoppers. Just cut 'em down to whatever size you need. Just be sure that they are not too short. Really short and they're a bear to hang on too.

    I also highly recommend you do use a quality paper...you have a auto paint supplier local? Hit them up for Meguiar's paper. The paper REALLY does make a different in the outcome. Another option for 'paper' is look at 3M's "Trizact".

    Good luck...

    I would think one would need a 1/4" wide piece of flat metal to act as a handle with a 45 degree bend at the end which would hold the wet paper.
    This would insure the brush touch-up gets flattened evenly.
    Does such a thing exist ?
