Black Fox Body...

Black Fox Body we finished up. Owner brought it in from Midland, and left it here with me for quite a while. This was my first car after the surgery, so he let me work on it at my leisure. This is another amateur buff job fix

Thanks man! Yeah this is the same car that was there when you came by the shop. He dropped it off before my surgery, and it sat there for about 2-2.5 months waiting on me The owner was great though, he knew it was gonna be a while when he dropped it off. Awesome guy!

I bet he was happy, it was pretty rough when I saw it. It's like picking up a new car.

Price depends on what you're wanting done, current condition of the car, and how far you want to go with it. You guys can give me a call at 214-205-1287 and we can discuss the different options.

Nick I need to talk to you about doing my truck... it looks like someone scrubbed it with those sanding sponges. I'll have to shoot you pics to get an estimate tho, cause im in AR and I'd drive down there for a day or two while you guys cleaned her up... need to visit dad and brother anyway.

Chili is correct, keeps the compound/polish out of all the crevices, but it also protects the rubber from being burt by the buffer
