How much does a wet sand cost on average?
Sand paper, water, elbow grease, sounds cheap to me! :laugh: Not sure if you had someone else do it.
Are you talking wet sanding primer or wet sanding the clear?
wet sanding is for primer - color sanding is done after final paint.
OP will need to clarify
Sand and buff a complete repaint on a Skylark sized car, I charge $500-$600 on average, depending on the quality of the paint job.
To spot sand(dirt nibs & runs, not texture) and polish, about half that; to cut something flat(no peel)add about 50%
I remember when they painted my black GS, the owner of the body shop told me it took 2 guys 9 hours to color sand and polish my car.
WOW! $500 is CHEAP! :grin:
LOL, it's my customers that are cheap, I charge what the market will bare.
After 30+ years of practice, I can blade the dirt/runs out, sand three times with 1000/1200, 1500,2000, buff three times with compound, polish and glaze on most cars in one day.
Materials cost less than $50 to do a job, how much can I really charge for a days labor?
p.s. I'd rather do 2 black cars than 1 butternut yellow
$500 doesn't seem too little...I could get one done in a weekend, and be happy with the $400 profito No:
Finish wet sanding with 3000 grit Trizact on your DA and you will barely have anything to buff.:TU:
:gp: What he said ,Trizact is already polishing the paint.The old hand sand is a waste of time.
