I'm a detailer in VA. However, I'm in Northern VA. About 1.5-2 hours away from Charlottesville from what I remember.

Here is a link with numerous details that I've done (Several members from NASIOC). http://www.s2ki.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=795826

I am also trying to get a detail/buff. My friend is painting the car as we speak and he is not the best buffer out there. Decent painter for the buck though. I would love for a great buff to remove all swirls and orange peel. Prices? please let me know.

Your location would be helpful.

Swirls = detailer with machine and polish
Orange Peel = Wet sanding followed by polish to bring gloss back.

Typically body shops recommend waiting before polishing/waxing fresh paint to let it fully cure. Each body shop has different recommendations for length of time based on the hardener they use. Ask your friend how long you should be waiting.

Ill be sure to ask. Basically its a 04 STi that was in a front end accident. But the whole front has been replaced to 06, they just welded on the new aprons and radiator support. should be in the booth by Saturday. Its being painted Java Black again...I am sure to ask tomorrow to see how long. Ive seen him do a few cars and his painting is great but there are swirls still in the paint. I am only speaking from seeing beautiful jobs shown on here on Nasioc on how swirls are removed. I would be interested in driving down there. I am located in Woodbridge, VA but the car is in Germantown, MD. I wouldnt mind driving the car down there for a great job.
