Now, I understand that maybe you weren't looking at cutting and buffing an entire car. The $3,000.00 example will give you an idea of how fast the cost of this type of work adds up and the cost of a polisher in the scheme of things is not that much and will pay for itself on the first job.

Maybe wait another 2 or 4 weeks until the cash is saved for that polisher too.

well now that u put that cost into perspective for me , i think saving up for my own buffer/polisher is a great idea lmao

the shop in town quoted me 6,500 for a paint job on this car , and that was with me bringing them the car with the body work done and ready for primer/paint
so nwo that u posted that im sure just the polish job would be alot of money by itself
