Considering your bad luck on most of this project along with the cost,I'd consider the outsourcing of the cut & buff.
You can do it by hand with 1500 & 2000,Harbor has a nice variable speed buffer for around $50.00 on sale,so, the big expence will be pads and compound.
Kinda your call on it Ric. I know you would like to do it yourself but hey, that is not too bad a price if they do a good job.

buffer

I think for that price you might want to farm that job out. Buffing isn't real difficult, but would hate to see you sand or buff through and wreck a candy job which won't be an easy repair. Its also a bit of work to buff out a car, and remember how much fun you had painting it. It doesn't take long hitting an edge to go through the paint. This way if they go through they will be responsible.

No Harbor Freight in Canada the closest I have found is princes auto and there model is like $90 Canadian. plus PST plus GST.

What should you expect to pay for a cut and buff from a reputable body shop????
