Noob detailing

Yea, I wouldnt say I am great at detailing, but I do keep my car very clean.

I been messing with my griots orbital with m105 and m205. It bothers the hell out of me that while I am using the products, white powder is getting all over the car after I just washed it.

I dab a tiny bit of compound on the pad, and do 6 sectional passes at 6k rpms. I am getting results but not the crazy results I am expecting. Yes I know a black car is the hardest to work with but I am sure someone has found a way to work it.
Maybe some better techniques?

Is there a better compound to use?

P.S. Id love to take it to a professional, but I am sure id end up swirling the car back up very quickly

1. Are you priming the pad?

2. If the M105 produces excess dust add a dime sized spot of Meguiars - D300 DA Microfibre Correction Compound
