full compound buff

Got a freind who paints car, now I was talking to him the other day and he said he'll do a full compound buff on my car for $200 is that a good price?? He said it would be a full days work. I've never buff'd cuz I don't want to mess up my paint I Jus want to get some input if that is a good price

Re: full compound buff

Yep, as long as he knows what he is doing and doesn't burn through the paint, especially on the corners.

I did mine for $18.00 keep in mind I already had a buffer... An I'm not talking about a 20.00 job from wal mart.... It's more like a grinder here is a pic of the door after and the rear quarter panel before....

Re: full compound buff

if done correctly by someone that KNOWS what they are doing it can make the paint look great.

Is he using a rotary or dual action? Does he know what he's doing with a rotary? Can he finish out with the rotary or no? Depending on how far you want to take correction is how much I would charge. Take for example I start at 125$ for a 1 step polish and go from there. The price goes up as more polishing/compounding steps are done.

Rotary just spins in a circle.

DA (Dual Action/Orbital) spins a circle within a circle.

Can't wait to see the pics man! The DA is alot safer to use, but under heavy compounding a rotary is much faster for the grunt work. There's alot more of a chance of burning the paint with a rotary also. Was just curious

Re: full compound buff

Not trying to be a *** but your "friend" is gonna charge you $200!?! This might just be me but I would never do that to a friend. Bring the beer and burgers and we will knock it out this weekend is what I would tell you.

Hope it all works out and I'm sure if he knows what he is doing then it will look great in the end.
