Light dust is the key. You don't want to go wiping down your car after you've driven it for a week, but a daily light dust will be fine. Just make sure you use something with good lubrication(Quik Detailer), and a quality towel that is going to trap the dust particals in...like a good quality microfiber towel.

I was in an apartment for a while, and this is what I was doing to keep my truck clean. I'd have to wash it about every 2 weeks or so.

Get in touch with me when the weather gets a little better, and I'll get you all cleaned up. Also, please feel free to give my name and number to your buddy. I'd be more than happy to get him taken care of.

Jose, where is your work? Could you load your bike up in your truck and drop it off on your way to or from work?


Thanks,

Strokd-No worries man. I'm really sorry to hear about the bad luck your having. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help out.

Franks-It's not a shop. Just a garage......with a house attached I know it's not much, but coming from an apartment, this is the greatest garage in the world right now

STROKD Nick, I am still very interested, I lost my job last week, and my cousin died on New Years Eve, so after I get a few things sorted out, maybe the end of the month we can do my Cobra or 86? I'd probably rather do the 86 first, the paint is looking really bad on it.
01-09-2007 02:41 PM
1985GT you have a price list?

Finally got a garage to work on cars....

Well, after being 100% mobile for a long time, I've finally got a fixed location to work on cars. I'm still going to offer my mobile service, but since my schedule has been so busy with my full time job, child care issues and this detailing business, it was hard to work all of these cars in and get them finished. I was only able to go out and detail cars about 2-3 days a week at most. Now I have the option of detailing any day of the week, provided that you can bring your car out to me in Grapevine.
Plus there were a few people that couldn't have me working on their cars at their apartments due to restrictions in their apartment complex. So, I was losing quite a bit of business.

So now I am able to offer my services basically anyday. I'm hoping that this will open up new oportunities for me and this business.


That is all, carry on

Nick
