Is it necessary to use both 105 and 205

Let's say you have a car with moderate swirl marks, is it always necessary to first use 105 and then go back over the car with 205 on a finishing pad?
Or is it best practice to try 205 first with a cutting pad ?
I know this is basic stuff to you guys so I apologise
Rob

Always always start with the least aggressive combo, so 205 on a polishing pad and check your progress. You can always go more aggressive but if you start off aggressive, then if it is too harsh you can't go back.

M205 should get rid of most swirls. I use an orange hex pad. I use M105 for light scratches but it can be a pain to remove so a little spritz of water helps.

Just do a test section with 205 on a finishing pad and if that does not work try 205 on a polishing pad. If you need something stronger then try 105 on a polishing or compounding pad. Then use 205 afterwards to remove any hazing from 105 which will also increase the gloss.

Although it sounds like a bit of a faff to do this, once you know what works for your car, you just repeat the combination for every other bit of paint. It is much faster to do a test section than start off with some products you do not need plus keeping as much paint on the car is good thing
