Whats a good price for a buff job?

Trucks paint is dirty, and I dont have the time, nor the energy to buff it out. Last time I did, i was completely drained and it took 9hrs. so whats the average going price for a GOOD buffing?

I usually charge anywhere from 75 to 200 depending on the size of the vehicle, if I have to wash it, how much clay baring it needs, and how much wax/polish I use. I know that is kind of a broad price, but the factors listed above, make all the difference. (I also use a wheel, not a "buffer")

Alright, I was in a somewhat major accident over the summer. And had substantial damage to the front end of my truck. The hood had to be resprayed. It was perfect. However, I did some mudding this fall after dad passed away. And I havent touched the truck with wax in about 6 months. This passed satuday I waxed it and noticed 'scuff' marks sort of in my hood. I have in the passed attempted rubbing compound by 3M on my truck with disasterous results... ended up claybaring the truck. it sucked. I dont think claybar will take the marks out of the hood, I think it need that 3m **** and a good buff... thats really All i am looking for, is for the hood to be done. You cant tell from a distance, but get up close and look acrossed it and u can see the marks. Also, I have what apears to me as a little bit of over spray on my A column? on the driverside. Im not looking for a full buffing of the whole truck more so on the hood.

"What's a good price for a buff job?" - Sounds illegal and immoral to me.

Just check the local yellow pages under "escort services". You'll find a good buffer to give you a buff job.

LOL
