Default Anyone in the Toronto area who knows how to Buff paint

My "new" 95 Olds 98 is in real nice shape overall, but it has a lot of small, buffable scratches. As I have seen what can happen if you don't know how to buff paint properly, I don't wanna start practising on this car.
As money is tight, I am wondering if anyone knows someone in the Toronto area who can do it, and not rape me for it as most of the detailing shops would.
Thanks!
Erik

Hi Peter
For the most part, there are just a lot of light scratches, not deep ones that are into the paint. It bascially needs a good run over with some compound and a buffer. Spent MANY years in the car rental business, so I have a pretty good idea what can and can't be done, so I am realistic. The paint itself, is pretty good overall.
Oh, and I live about 3 or 4 minutes drive from City Buick!
Thanks
Erik

Sounds great!
Oh, and did I mention it was black?


Just kidding.

It is a steel blue, which is almost as bad I am thinking! If I can figure out how to upload pictures on here, I will post some!
Will take it to PM'*

Hey Peter, I didn't know you were a painter, interesting. And no I'm not saying that because I need one. I wish I knew how to paint but truth be know I suck at it, and bodywork.
