    105, 205, then anything else?

    It was a real suck a$$ day in Michigan. I got all my house hold chores done, and I decided to polish up the Charger. I used my Porter Cable and did a 105 and a 205. This is the first time I used these products. I am pretty amazed. 99% of the swirls are gone, and I never knew black could look so good. Such a deep color and mirror like. My question is, should I be putting anything on after the 205?

    M205 contains oils and will adversely affect the adhesion of your wax or sealant. I would wash the vehicle once more and wipe down the surface with IPA before applying your wax or sealant.

    Ok, do I need to wax after the 205, or is the 205 sufficient enough?
    And seeing as I am old and slow- what is IPA?

    IPA is isopropyl alcohol to remove any residue or oils left over from 205. Yes you should wax after this.

    Definitely wax after you've cleaned it well - like roscoe said, IPA is your friend, I use it in between procedures to check my progress - it hides nothing and give you a clean surface to wax.

    Very nice looking job - that looks very nice!

    I have done Collinite 915 after 205 and the 915 lasted 6 months.
