sorry but that's definitely not a 97 camry. The 97 had the body style right after that one. The one right before the new one...

For that $60 do you compound and polish the paint and shampoo the interior too? If you do, you should raise the price.....

I Use a buffing machine, not an orbital on the paint to remove, oxidation, scratches, and dirt.....That is what Compounding is in a basic explanation....I wrote what I charge DaCurryman, in the beginning of the post. I usually get $100-$125 for a full detail.

Well, for 2 guys who just started this as a side venture to make a lil extra cash, and me being a former detailer for a local dealership, $60 is a good price for what we do now. And normally, we make pretty good tips on our price (most I got was $20)...we do a basic wash, Meguiar's wax, and shampooing IF necessary, otherwise, just sweeping it out. No doubt, we will be raising our price, once we get into it heavier. For now, its just a price to cover some prices and make a lil extra money doing something we like doing....
