7 comments on How to Treat Door Handle Scratches

  1. DJ says:

    Great how to! Mixture of M105/D300… Interesting! What else have you used that mixture on? Never thought to mix the two!

  2. Nice article, Ivan!

    @ DJ: The D300/M105 (aka “M405″) mixture is quite useful! By combining the two products you get the excellent cutting power of the M105 and the excellent working time & minimal dusting of D300. I use this combo quite often with the Meguiar’s MF Cutting disks when doing heavy compounding.

    Great little project and write up! My mother-in-law’s Honda CR-V has absolutely horrid scratches like this (the car is light blue, not the typical dark color where scratches look worst). I don’t know if it is soft paint, acrilic fingernails, a combination of that or what, but every time I get near the car I cringe. All four handles look really bad, and it jumps out at me so much that I have contemplated stealing the car for an afternoon in order to fix it. Now I have a how-to if I go through with the theft! :-)

    @zach What kind of mixing ratio have you found to be successful with the m105/D300?

    • DJ: As I mentioned, I tend to use this combo on MF cutting pads. The way I use the ‘mixture’ is to prime the pads with the D300, and then use the M105 as my working product. When I notice dusting starting to increase or working time starting to decrease, I will add a bit more D300 to the pad. It is by no means an exact science, and I’m sure you could simply mix the 2 together in a bottle. Maybe Ivan will chime in on how he uses it… premixed or not.

    I had this issue with a vehicle I detailed this week. Serious scratches under the door handle. I used M105 and applied it with a waffle weave blue pad. The waffle weave allowed me to cut better and the scratches were completely removed.

    Great Combo,Used it, D300 seems to lubricate the 105.Started at 50/50, then started to see and feel result.

    Thanks Ivan.
