just seeing what happends here....polishing stainless molding for these mustangs has been a fun thing for me to do for years and friends have said i should

start doing it for customers after doing some for them, so i'm thinking on trying it out and offering to do etheir the front windshield set or rear window

molding set for 125. plus the shipping back to you.i don't know what professional shops charge anymore its been awhile since i checked but i have been

told its a bit more than that, that being said if anyone wants some moldings buffed/polished let me know what you have! most scratches if not all come out

but dents don't so if yours have dents i can do my best....Jim [email protected]

I just did my front & rear glass moulding. It's not perfect but pretty damn good. It is a lot of work starting from the ground floor & trashing around to find the best method...but the cost is not bad....IF you already have a bench grinder.

Personally, being a DIY guy, I'd rather invest my money in tooling....but your price is not bad.

Pick up the skill of taking out dents and you will do good! I had to hammer out a lot of them, file it flat and then polish them. Time consuming work!

The price you quote is way below that of a pro shop. Way below. I was quoted over $700 by one high end shop that specialized in the process. If you calculate the hours it takes to do it right* I'd say you are below minimum wage on the job.

*straighten, fix dents, sand out deep scratches and finally multi-stage buff
