But at the same time you have a feeling like if you got no pay but it just LEFT so you didn't have to look at it anymore , that would be fine too.

I know one thing for sure, when it, they, or any car I had a big hand in getting it straight is complete, there's nothing more gratifying than seeing it cast nice reflections after you buff it. Than when it gets final detailed and ready to go then it just screams for a 12 pack as everybody is running around the car taking pics of it in glee. I don't buff much here but can hang skill wise with the painter and when I do buff I enjoy it. Lot of body techs I know feel it's under them to buff butt I take it in stride and look at it as another opportunity to appreciate the efforts of the team as the shine from buffing breathes life into it. A great feeling indeed.
