charging twice for buffing bc/cc?

from what i can tell, it's not unusal to have to buff the clear coat out 3-4 months after it was painted and the solvents have had a chance to evaporate. on the other hand, my tempest was painted without buffing and didnt need it, by the same guy who painted my camaro. my camaro needs it BIG TIME!!!

my question is this. he already charged me for the three hours he and his helper (6 hrs total fee) buffed out the car in december. he told me to bring it back in june so here it is. SHOULD I HAVE TO PAY FOR IT THIS TIME OR NOT???

if he was a doctor you wouldn't have to pay for a follow up, but he's no doctor.

why not buff it yourself?

no (don't pay), I my opinion the paint shop should want to do this to make the paint job look it's best so it will bring in more customers. You just can't use the "buff it later it;ll be fine" excuse and not buff it later...

Any charge would have been agreed to (in writing)when you picked up the car.... The problem your having is a comunication one.

Nope, I wouldn't pay. At a bodyshop you get a certain time per refinish time, I think .3, to charge to cut and buff. Anything you do after that point it is a comeback, which means you don't get paid for it. You shouldn't have to pay to buff again if the clear dies back.

does it need to be color sanded or just buffed up buff is a art form to me so is color sanding i worked for a idiot who painted a 69 stingray (no joke) a dozen times before he sent it to a shop w/ a booth what was good for me was i got lots of practice wet sanding just keep in mind if you do polish it your self once you go through the paint your starting from the beginning again good luck

No way!
This in normal and all he is going to do is hit it with 1500 type compound and than with a fine cut or swirl mark remover.
