A Few Tips About Applying M205 Ultra Finishing Polish
Polishes should be applied to small areas at a time, when working either by hand, with a dual action polisher such as Meguiar's G110v2 Dual Action Polisher, or with a rotary polisher. Working small areas at a time allows concentrates the work and maximizes the efficiency of M205 Ultra Finishing Polish.
Keep the following points in mind when working with any polish like Meguiar's M205 Ultra Finishing Polish: polishes do not need to dry before removing and in fact should be wiped off immediately after they are worked over the finish. If they dry, the can be difficult to remove. For M205 Ultra Finishing Polish, simply go over the same area again with more M205 to re-wet the surface and then remove it while it’s still wet. Polishes need to be worked into the finish; they are not wipe on, wipe off products. Use a moderate amount of pad pressure to achieve optimum performance. Polishes remove everything off the surface of the paint including wax, so after using paint cleaner, Meguiar’s strongly recommends re-applying a protective coating of wax. A finishing polish like M205 is not designed for heavy or severe defect removal, but rather is a refining step between defect removal and application of wax. The harder the paint and the deeper the defect, the smaller the area that should be worked on at one time.
Applying M205 Ultra Finishing Polish
- 1. Dispense a small amount of Meguiar’s M205 Ultra Finishing Polish directly onto a foam applicator pad or a small, clean 100% cotton terry towel.
- 2. Work a small section at a time using a tight, circular pattern and making 4-6 overlapping passes. When the M205 Ultra Finishing Polish starts to turn clear, make one final pass to polish the surface.
- 3. Before moving on to the next section, use Meguiar’s Supreme Shine Microfiber Towel to wipe away any product residue before it dries. Additional application of M205 Ultra Finishing Polish may be required to remove deep &/or stubborn defects.
- 4. Repeat steps 4 and 5 as needed to complete the rest of the vehicle.
- 5. Follow up with any Meguiar’s wax, like Ultimate Wax.
By Dual Action Polisher:
- 1. Attach the appropriate polishing pad to the Meguiar’s G110v2 Dual Action Polisher (W9207).
- 2. Set the tool to speed 4, and apply a strip of Meguiar’s M205 Ultra Finishing Polish directly onto the pad.
- 3. Place the face of the pad flat on the paint. Turn on the Meguiar’s Dual Action Polisher and begin buffing using light to moderate pressure in an overlapping pattern while keeping the pad flat against the paint at all times.
- 4. Work a small section (2’ x 2’) at a time, until the Ultimate Compound starts to turn clear. Apply additional Ultra Finishing Polish as needed until maximum gloss is achieved.
- 5. Before moving on to the next section, use Meguiar’s Supreme Shine Microfiber Towel to wipe away any product residue before it dries.
- 6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 as needed to complete the rest of the vehicle.
- 7. Follow up with any Meguiar’s and wax, like Ultimate Wax.
By Rotary Polisher:
- 1. Attach the appropriate foam polishing pad to the rotary polisher and set the tool speed to 1200-1600rpm to remove light to moderate defects, 1200rpm or slower for final finishing polish.
- 2. Apply a bead of M205 directly to the paint surface and begin working in a 2’ x 2’ area with overlapping passes. Continue working until defects are removed.
- 3. Wipe remaining residue with a Meguiar’s Supreme Shine Microfiber Towel before moving on to the next section.
- 4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 as needed to complete the rest of the vehicle, cleaning the pad often.
- 5. For final polishing and to really maximize gloss, follow the steps outlined below.

This is what all polishes should be, fast and effective.
It should be noted that Meguiar's Ultimate Polish is based on the same technology and formulation as this product. Ultimate Polish has more polishing oils, but less abrasives. If your paint is already in great shape, Ultimate Polish would be the better product to use due to the higher oil content. M205 has more cutting ability, and will therefore have more restorative power to your paint finish. Unfortunately, M205 is also more expensive.
M205 is a professional caliber Meguiar's product that is used to remove fine swirls or haze from paint. M205 is very rich in polishing oils, and should be used as the final step before waxing in order to great a high reflection, high gloss shine on the paint. This product features SMAT -- super micro abrasive technology. This is a huge improvement over older diminishing abrasive polishes.
SMAT technology involves the use of aluminum oxide particles in suspension that are extremely tiny, hence the term micro abrasive. As you polish, these particles help strip off dead oxidized paint and boost the clarity of the finish. Older diminishing abrasives products must be worked sufficiently to break down the abrasives into smaller and smaller particles until they are "all gone." The problem with these types of products is that if they are not worked in sufficiently, they will create a haze on the paint or even instill swirls.
SMAT technology polishes can be worked for any length of time, as the abrasives do not change or break down over time.Read more ›
My initial review of this polish was unjustly harsh, because I had gotten the impression that it contained fillers that masked the swirl marks that later appeared in my polishing job. The first time, I used M105, liked the results, then used M205, then finished with Liquid Glass. It looked awesome in the garage, but I noticed a ton of swirl marks once I got it out into the bright sun. I hadn't noticed them before, so I thought it was because fillers in the M205 had evaporated, leaving swirls. But based on my last try, this turns out not to be the case.
In my review of the M105 compound, I mentioned that it dries out and turns to dust. This makes it really easy to wipe off, and it seems like it's possible to do a whole panel at a time before trying to remove it, with no bad effects. When you're ready to take it off, you can bulldoze it off with a towel. No big deal.
This stuff is different. It doesn't dry out completely while you're working it, and if you let it dry at all *after* working it, it becomes very hard to remove. The cause of my swirl marks the first time I used it was the fact that I had to scrub the paint to get the M205 off! The trick is to work in very small sections (2' x 2' works well), work until satistfied, stop the polisher, put it down, immediately grab a very soft towel, and buff the 205 off. The importance of the towels you use cannot be overstated. I used a 100% cotton towel. Also, the motion you use with the towels is important.Read more ›
I washed and clayed the car with Mother's Clay Bar. Then I used Ultra Cut compound with Meguiar's DA polisher and Meguiar's 7006 cutting pad followed by Meguiar's Ultra Finishing Polish using the same DA polisher and Meguiar's 9006 pad. I saw an impressive reduction in swirl marks and scratches. The black paint looked almost like a mirror. I could not remove every single scratch, but the paint looked much better than before and much better than paint on many seven year old cars.
After Cutting and Finishing compounds, I applied Meguiar's Mirror Glaze and two coats of Meguiar's NXT was. It worked very well. I am extremely happy with the results.
A month later I tried Meguiar's Ultimate Compound followed by Glaze and NXT, but I did not see any significant improvement from the earlier results.
