    Q for TurbomanGT

    I sent payment for the DVD, and I'm anxiously awaiting delivery, but I'm curious. I need to wetsand and buff my Brougham. Does the DVD show actual footage of you doing the processes, ie. actually wetsanding or buffing a vehicle? Second question, I can't afford variable-speed rotary buffer or whatever the technical name is, can i use one of those blue Waxmaster random orbital buffers everyone has?

    Brian, I have a special section where I do wet sanding yes, but its on a fender, which I would encourage you to do BEFORE you experiment on your car. Most bosy shops have plently of car body parts around they will be glad to give you one. Next, you cannot remove wet sanding marks with that orbital you have, it doesn't have that ability, motor is to weak. I'm afraid you will either have to invest in a rotary (and learn to use it) or take it to a pro. Gary

    Thanks for responding so quickly! Would the charge for a body shop to buff my vehicle usually be very high?

    If its just buffing any detail shop would charge around $200 for wet sanding it could be a grand or more at a body shop, much more time, you might consider re paint if you like the car so much. Gary

    $200 isn't bad at all, I'd do the wet-sanding myself though. I can practice on Ruthie's '93 Tercel and then hit mine. Some day I will repaint my baby, but I'd like to wait a few years until Ruthie and I are married and I make a few bucks so I can spend thousands on a high-quality paint-job.
