Is this versatile enough?

I have M105, M205, and some Hydrotech Cyan and Hydrotech Tangerine pads.

Is this a versatile enough combination, or do I need some lighter cutting pads? I'm hoping to place an order pretty soon and would throw them in if necessary.

I would consider buying a sample of PO85RD or something off of someone and getting just 1 or 2 lesser cut pads. But what you have should be good unless your car is really beat up. The PO85RD and finishing pad just allow you to amp up the gloss a little more after the 205.

Thanks Darkstar. My car is pretty light, I'm thinking M205 and a white pad (bought one last night). But my wife's car is heavily swirled, will need a heavier pad and maybe the M105. If not, I'll resell it.

I've used M205 with a LC black pad at times and that brings out a beautiful shine.

I would say you're covering a LOT with M105, M205, blue cyan and tangerine pads. I'd probably add a couple of black pads to see what they do for you with 205.
