Default How much are you paying for a 3-stage wax job?

f you've recently paid someone to do a 3-stage (polish/deoxidize,buff, wax), how much did it cost you? I was quoted $450 for the deck of my 35 Cig.

Just buy the beer for yourself and do the job yourself. Jeesh, this stuff ain't science.

I've paid as much as $16 a foot, but usually it's more like $13 a foot.

I think you're right in there at $13 a foot, of course that includes shampooing carpets inside and out, vinyl preservation on seats....a complete detail inside and out.
