    If I don't touch the interior at all, around $100 for pure 2 step (no corrective polishing, light claying), but at least $150 if any paint correction is required.

    I quoted $100. I really cant see charging more for no corrective work. It will take me 1.5 hours max to wash clay AIO and seal.I told him if it needs polish we are looking at $50 an hour more.
