Go to www.autopia-carcare.com which is a detailing forum. They will tell you how and what to use on your car to make it look like new.

Another option is too just shoot another clear coat on top of the existing paint.
I wouldn't consider shooting another coat of clear on an already cured paint job. Clears don't have good adhesion abilities. They are designed to be sprayed onto the color coat within a certain time so they can chemically bond.

As for the body rate, it depends on the area you are in. The shops here are currently in the $34.00/$36.00 per hour range and due to increase soon. Not far from here they are around $40.00
